video surveillance
Advantage of NEXCOM NIO200 Solution
Scalable Mesh infrastructure
Distributed WSN topology
Scalable Wi-Fi backbone infrastructure to reserve for future expansion
Supports multiple subnets managed by the same Gateway
Dual Radio Wi-Fi Mesh with better reliability
Robust & Secure
High throughput backbone based on IEEE 802.11an
High RF power in Wi-Fi Mesh connectivity
High immunity (IEC 61000-4-2,3,4,5 Level-4 ) to against Surge, ESD,..
CID2, ATEX hazardous certificate
High C/P value solution
High scalability lowers CAPEX and ensures swift ROI
Reduced TCO (Total Cost of Ownership)
Wired backbone ( including Fiber deployment ) is costly in cabling &
limited in scale expansion
Flexible Wi-Fi Mesh backbone reduces overall cost
Solution Highlights
Supports distributed
network topologies
Cost-effective, extended
geographic coverage
Supports multiple
subnets managed by
the same Gateway
High scalability lowers CAPEX
and ensures swift ROI
EZ Mesh Wi-Fi
enabled backbone
Reliable, robust wireless
backbone infrastructure reduces
installation and maintenance
costs.
