First, it reduces the cost of infrastructure when compared with the traditional trenching and laying of cable which, in the current economic environment, is unsurprisingly popular.
Second, wireless infrastructure offers networking in areas of cultural significance, such as city centres and historic sites, without the need to dig up roads: in some cases, it’s the only option.
Third, wireless technology can be used in temporary video surveillance installations to provide a degree of flexibility that a wired solution just cannot offer. In these days of austerity, moving cameras when and where you need them is a more attractive option than buying new ones.
Finally, the end user sector that suits wireless infrastructure best is city surveillance (municipalities), which just happens to be the fastest-growing vertical market for video surveillance.
