Wireless Success Stories:
Client: City of Atlantic Beach, FL
Problem: Current Cisco 802.11 point to point equipment was dropping connections and was very slow. Data rate was less than 5mbs and not sufficient for their needs. Mayport navy base is within 2 miles of the wireless equipment causing interference with the installation.
Solution: Installed three, Redline Communications 36 Mbps point to point links from existing water towers to 80 foot Rohn towers. Links now allow for network data, SCADA and Video images across the wireless link. Due to interference from the navy base, we used a 4.9 GHz instead of 5.8 GHz frequency range for some of the links.
