StreetNode™'s innovative engineering addresses the complex problem of having a carrier-grade network down to city's streets, anywhere. This unique "all-in-one" solution is based on a revolutionary software-defined radio platform, which realizes connectivity service through overlay coverage and facilitation of street-level ("clutter") networking.
StreetNode™ operates in a variety of frequencies (26 / 28 / 32 / 42 GHz (ETSI) and 28 / 39 GHz (FCC)) and can be deployed on lamp posts or building walls, thus reducing the associated site costs significantly.
Controlled by an intelligent SON (Self-Organizing Network) Manager, which simplifies provisioning, ensures service availability and automates optimization, StreetNode™ accelerates service deployment and minimizes investment and operational complexity.
Traditional PtMP and PtP-based backhaul architectures have limited practical value in SmC backhaul applications, as they prove to be economically inefficient by today's standards. For instance, deploying PtP links, in order to connect all SmC locations at street level, may end to multi-hop, complex and expensive networks.
On the other hand, the exclusive use of NLOS technologies, while overcoming LOS limitations and providing deployment flexibility, are available at sub-6 GHz frequencies where resources are scarce and licenses are quite expensive. Furthermore, NLOS propagation, which is based on signal reflections, can create significant interference among adjacent radio links, also reducing capacity well below the nominal value.
The software-defined radio operation (PtMP or PtP) employed by StreetNode™ introduces an optimized architecture that significantly increases the connectivity possibilities in demanding SmC backhaul applications. In-clutter extensions allow connecting all those SmCs that do not have direct LOS with the overlay PtMP hub. One single unit - StreetNode™ - provides efficient overlay and street-level coverage, serving the vast majority of SmC locations without the need to consider alternative technologies with all their limitations.
StreetNode™ accelerates the deployment of surveillance infrastructures of public and private sector organizations, providing a low- cost, technically-complete solution for a variety of modern security applications, such as:
StreetNode™ network can aggregate high-definition (HD) video traffic from security cameras in large facilities. When expansion is required, a StreetNode™ node is simply installed next to each new camera position. The innovative technologies employed by StreetNode™ harness the connectivity issue, leaving businesses focus on their main activities.
