SeeChange’s SeeWare Platform-as-a-Service enables their partners to deliver solutions to recognise real-world scenarios in real-time. This edge-to-cloud platform delivers advanced computer vision algorithms, enabling the design and delivery of solutions to multiple vertical markets providing insights that have the power to revolutionise those industries.
SeeChange were moving offices whilst some important projects were in flow and which required their end-to-end solutions to be deployed for test and trials purposes. The office move meant that they needed a new broadband circuit to be delivered by Openreach which was a key component of these solutions. This circuit was significantly delayed and for that reason they decided to procure a budget 5G router believing that this would provide the necessary performance to allow their projects to continue without the need for a fixed line circuit.
However, soon after its installation, it became clear that this device was not able to deliver the required performance in terms of bandwidth, latency, security and reliability.
SeeChange approached Net4 to assist them in choosing the right equipment.
Based on SeeChange’s requirements Net4 recommended that they deploy the Inseego Wavemaker™ FW2000e 5G Outdoor Customer Premises Equipment (CPE).
The FW2000 uses high-gain directional antennas to extend the reach of carrier networks, providing 5G fixed wireless access (along with 4G LTE fallback at LTE CAT 22 speeds) and this provided the fast 5G speeds, higher bandwidth, and low latency that SeeChange required to operate their video streaming based technology solutions.
The FW2000e also has advanced networking features including Secure Firewall, DMZ, MAC Filtering, IP Passthrough, VPN Passthrough, Manual DNS, Port Filtering and Port Forwarding which all helped alleviate many of the concerns expressed by SeeChange’s clients regarding the use of camera-based technology within their premises.
