IMS Research Ranked Alvarion® the #1 Supplier in European Market for Wireless Infrastructure Equipment used in Video Surveillance
Alvarion Ltd., the world’s leading provider of 4G networks in the Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) market, today announced it was ranked the number one supplier of wireless infrastructure equipment used in video surveillance in Europe by IMS Research in its latest report “The EMEA Market for Wireless Infrastructure Used in Video Surveillance” (published August 2010).
“The main advantage of wireless infrastructure over wired systems is the cost savings associated with not trenching and laying cable. This means wireless infrastructure is well suited to video surveillance systems where cameras are required across a large area that has no existing network,” comments Niall Jenkins, Senior Analyst at IMS Research. “The video surveillance market, and in particular IP video surveillance, is fast growing and as wireless networking increases its penetration into this market, the opportunity for wireless infrastructure equipment vendors will continue to grow.”
