Milan, October 3rd 2006. Fluidmesh Networks has signed a partnership agreement with Casmar Electrónica SA, leader in video-surveillance products, intrusion and alarm systems distribution in Spain and Portugal.
Fluidmesh 2200 is a wireless product with innovative “intelligent” transmission capabilities not present in any traditional Wi-Fi or HiperLAN device. Based on advanced mesh networking algorithms, Fluidmesh technology is able to optimize the transmission by determining a continuous analysis of the optimal path, performing “intelligent” routing of packets in real time. Moreover, every Fluidmesh 2200 is able not only to transmit the data packets coming from the camera directly connected to it, but also to relay the video streams of other Fluidmesh units in the area based on a best-path analysis.
“Fluidmesh gives system integrators and installers a new solution for the design of CCTV systems without compromises in terms of quality or performances - declares Umberto Malesci, Fluidmesh Networks president and co-founder - Casmar is the leader in the distribution of video-surveillance and alarm products in Spain and Portugal and we are confident that they will make technology well known in Western Europe.” Fluidmesh
One of the strengths of the Fluidmesh 2200 is the advanced transmission protocol specifically developed for video streaming in CCTV applications. Each Fluidmesh unit is capable of detecting the type of packet transmitted (es. TCP, UDP, etc.) and the video-encoding standard employed (es. MPEG4 I-frame, MEPG4 P-frame, M-JPEG) and to optimize the transmission based on that information. This kind of packet management guarantees shorter latency periods and a much better performing infrastructure.
“The demand for wireless is growing quickly in our territory and there is definitely a need for a product like the Fluidmesh 2200. We have selected Fluidmesh Networks because we think that their technology is a step ahead of competition offering unparallel performances compared to the other wireless products available on the market - says Jordi Alonso, Casmar Electronica CCTV Product Manager - With Fluidmesh Networks we will be able to successfully enter the ICT market here in Spain and also in Portugal”.
Fluidmesh Networks has presented its innovative product to the European market in conjunction with the 2006 edition of IFSEC. Fluidmesh 2200 has been launched in North America in September 2006 in San Diego at ASIS International Annual Seminar and Exhibits.
