U.S. Flag and Surveillance Cameras


Highly-secure intelligence and surveillance systems, redundant fiber overlay, seamless inter-building connections and emergency preparedness.


In recent years, civil and military government agencies across the U.S. and abroad have become highly dependent on new broadband technologies to meet the requirements of video imaging systems for national security and intelligence, public safety, and surveillance purposes.

Video imaging systems are based on advanced digital cameras that require high bandwidth, high quality applications, which until recently, could only be provided by using fiber optic cables. However, given the high costs and time constraints associated with laying fiber, government agencies have begun to seek advanced wireless solutions that can provide seamless and secure high speed connectivity in a cost effective manner.

Today’s video surveillance networks typically integrate high frame rate cameras and a backbone of high capacity wireless links in varying topologies. Advanced digital IP cameras utilize ample bandwidth and in order to enable a high frame rate for simultaneous video streams, these cameras now seek the support of high performance wireless links to backhaul traffic from the cameras, enable routing and aggregate data to the monitoring station where it is analyzed and stored.

Advanced Security Options

BridgeWave’s solutions provide superior interference immunity and enhanced data security resulting from their extremely narrow antenna beam widths, making signal interception or jamming virtually impossible. Operating in the 60 GHz and 80 GHz upper millimeter-wave spectrum, these links enable high capacity operation due to large spectrum allocations in these frequency bands.

Beyond the exceptional inherent physical layer of security, BridgeWave offers FIPS-certified internal 256-bit AES data encryption - the strongest encryption standard commercially available - as an additional layer of security. BridgeWave provides a well-suited solution for public safety applications where sensitive, high bandwidth IP-based video traffic is backhauled to the monitoring stations.

BridgeWave’s Advanced Security Options provide the outmost secure gigabit wireless solutions available today.
