    • Opportunities with Firetide Wireless Infrastructure Technology, Applications, Market Trends 1
    • Objectives Firetide’s market position Review wireless options & their differentiators Highlight trends is wireless infrastructure Introduce Firetide’s product portfolio Working together 2
    • Firetide Snapshot Headquartered in Los Gatos, CA Leading provider of wireless infrastructure mesh and broadband access networks Market leader in wireless infrastructure for public safety video surveillance Technology leader through continued innovation Over 2000 installations in 40 countries 3
    • Firetide’s Market Position 4
    • #1 in Video Wireless Mesh in Americas IMS Research report on wireless video surveillance  Firetide is #1 market share in wireless mesh  #3 in the overall market (mesh, PtP, PtMP) 5
    • IMS: Three Large & Fast Growing Markets Government Transportation Commercial 6
    • Wireless Options 7
    • Wireless Infrastructure Topologies Wi-Fi Access Point to PointPoint to Multi-Point Multi-Point to Multi-Point (Mesh) 8
    • Why is Redundancy Important? Wireless gear is very reliable…. …but it is frequently installed on light poles which aren’t 9
    • Not All ‘Wireless Mesh’ Created Equal 10
    • Imagine a Traditional Wired SwitchMost efficient mesh utilizes L2 distributed wireless switch architecture (Wired Ethernet infrastructure) 11
    • Now, Give Each Port Wireless Capability (Wired Ethernet infrastructure) 12
    • Separate the Ports… Bingo, a Virtual Ethernet Switch!(Wired Ethernet infrastructure) 13
    • Metro-scale Mesh Networks Wi-Fi access Radiological or chemical threat detection Gun-shot detection 14
    • Key Technology DifferentiatorsCustomer Infrastructure Mesh AP PtP PtMPBenefit MeshScalability forvideoSecurityInfrastructureMobilityBackhaul Every 10-15 hops Every 2-3 hops Every link Every base stationrequirementInvestment Indoor and outdoor, Indoor and outdoor, Outdoor only, complex Outdoor only,Protection multiple applications access point based, network management, complex network (data, video, voice) data support only no scalability management, limited scalability 15
    • Wireless InfrastructureApplications & Trends 16
    • Wireless-Enabled Campus/City 17
    • Infrastructure Mobility 30 fps video at 60 mph with zero packet loss 18
    • Mobility Goes Beyond Public Transit Consideration for 95% of mesh projects Commercial, public safety, mines, prisons, etc. 19
    • Wireless Off-load 20
    • Utilities: Mesh for WAN/Physical Security 21
    • 900 MHz to MIMO Mesh 900 MHz connection to well sites MIMO backbone to interconnect facilities (100+ Mbps) 22
    • WLAN & Mesh Coming Together 23
    • Firetide Product Portfolio 24
