August 2007 - Fluidmesh Networks, the worldwide leader in wireless video-surveillance systems based on mesh networking technology, is pleased to unveil at ASIS International its Fluidmesh 1100, a point-to-point wireless Ethernet bridge designed for security, public safety and video-surveillance applications. A Fluidmesh 1100-based wireless link creates a fully IP-compatible connection that guarantees unsurpassed performance in terms of security, throughput and reliability.
Through advanced software radio technology, the Fluidmesh 1100 can operate either on license-free 2.4 GHz, 5.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz frequency bands or on the public safety 4.9 GHz band. The preferred frequency can be easily selected through a Web-based interface during the installation. The integrated planar antenna makes the Fluidmesh 1100 a compact, easy to install solution. It comes complete with a proprietary Power over Ethernet injector and its sleek design provides a low-visual impact for discreet deployments in urban areas.
The system’s Web-based interface enables users to effectively and intuitively configure, align and monitor the wireless link. The Fluidmesh 1100 is a fully IP and Ethernet compatible device and, despite being designed and optimized for video solutions, it can also create fully IP compatible networks that can be employed for multiple services. Possible applications include VOIP communication, data network interconnection, and remote DVR control.
Every Fluidmesh 1100 takes advantage of the proprietary Fluidmesh optimization technology for video applications which guarantees unparalleled performances in terms of latency and reliability of the video streams. And, thanks to its proprietary communication protocol, the Fluidmesh 1100 provides an exceedingly high level of privacy because its traffic cannot be detected or decoded by standard Wi-Fi compatible radio. Moreover, Fluidmesh technology is fully compatible with VPN tunnels and industry-standard encryption schemes such as AES and 3DES.
Every Fluidmesh 1100 can be upgraded to become a mesh-capable transmitter by purchasing an add-on routing software package. With this software upgrade, the Fluidmesh 1100 can be deployed in combination with the Fluidmesh 2200 to create mesh networks with more complex architectures. The upgrade also gives the user maximum flexibility in the design of the wireless infrastructure and allows for easy expansions or reconfigurations of the network.
