Milan, Italy July 2007 - Fluidmesh Networks recently appointed Mayflex as its authorized distributor in the U.K. This agreement has given great advantage to the American company especially during the IFSEC show, where Mayflex exhibited Fluidmesh wireless mesh products.
“This partnership with Mayflex presents an ideal opportunity to enter the U.K. security market, says Umberto Malesci, Fluidmesh Networks president and co-founder. “We are particularly pleased because the urban surveillance market in the U.K. is growing up. There is an increasing need for video surveillance in the U.K. and Fluidmesh brings to market a specific know-how, technology and expertise to support customers in developing challenging wireless video surveillance projects”.
Martin Morris, Mayflex Security Sales Manager commented “We are delighted to add the Fluidmesh product range to our security portfolio. Their products give us an excellent transmission medium for our installers of surveillance cameras where cabling is either impractical or too costly, and the ability to prioritise video network traffic sets it apart from standard WiFi products.” Morris continued “A number of our customers have already incorporated the Fluidmesh product into their applications with great success.”
The Fluidmesh 2200 is the only wireless mesh networking product designed and manufactured specifically for video-surveillance applications. Every Fluidmesh 2200 series wireless unit not only transmits the video streams coming from the cameras directly attached to it, but also dynamically routes packets coming from other Fluidmesh units through the optimal path.
Fluidmesh 2200 wireless units take advantage of two radios simultaneously, operating one radio in the 2.4GHz and the other one in the 5GHz range. The dual radio configuration dramatically improves both performance and reliability.
Fluidmesh Networks designs and implements advanced routing and transmission protocols optimized for high-resolutions MPEG4 and M-JPEG video-streaming. Unlike any Wi-Fi solution, Fluidmesh Networks products implement advanced algorithms to improve wireless video-streaming, such as video-stream prioritization and multicast traffic support. Each Fluidmesh unit is capable of detecting the type of packet transmitted (i.e., TCP, UDP, etc.) and the video-encoding standard employed (i.e., MPEG4 I-frame, MEPG4 P-frame, M-JPEG) and optimizes its transmission based on that information. This kind of packet management guarantees shorter latency periods and a superior performing infrastructure.
