A major California university with more than 20,000 students, their challenge was to implement a wireless system that could effectively cover key sections of the sprawling campus and, at the same time, transmit data from two NVRs at separate libraries back to the campus security office. A mesh system utilizing both 900mHz a 5GHz frequencies was implemented, with 900mHz mesh nodes servicing student areas where existing access points used 2.4GHz bands, coupled with 5GHz nodes for back haul to the campus police dispact office. Despite having to contend with a transmission environment where literally thousands of devices were clogging available wireless frequencies, KBC's wireless mesh nodes, leveraging the 900mHz frequency to combat line-of-sight challenges, were well up to the task.
