Firetide Inc. has announced tri-band (2.4, 4.9, 5 GHz) capability on its HotPoint access points and HotClient client premises equipment (CPE) to augment the tri-band functionality of its HotPort mesh nodes.

The combination of user-controlled spectra, indoor and outdoor
configurations, backhaul performance of up to 70 Mbps, and end-to-end
management provides Firetide customers with flexibility for public
safety, commercial security, municipal and industrial deployments.

Wi-Fi access allows patrolling officers to tap into the video
surveillance network to monitor live video feeds as they respond to

Wireless access deployments in a public safety setting enable
high-bandwidth communications, such as 20 Mbps wireless offload of
recorded in-car video over a secure connection, alleviating the need to
manually plug and unplug digital video recorders during patrol shift
changes. In contrast, a cellular data adapter delivers a maximum of 1
Mbps throughput.

The Firetide tri-band HotPoint access points and HotClient CPEs will begin shipping on May 7, 2008.
