When the 35 W bridge collapsed in Minneapolis in what Governor Tim Pawlenty described as "A catastrophe of historic proportions for Minnesota", real-time, high resolution video transmitted from the disaster site to the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) using the city's wireless network - built with BelAir Networks gear - gave emergency personnel the detailed and comprehensive visibility needed to make critical planning and resource decisions. With port security as their principal concern, the Port of Richmond, northern California's most diversified cargo handler, deployed a state of the art IP video surveillance system utilizing advanced analytics and enabling remote monitoring and storage. To network almost a hundred cameras over the port's 15 square miles, they needed a wireless network that is both high performance and scalable.
