Smart city and global network concept.

There is ever-increasing demand to deploy IP-based surveillance cameras and other security devices. However, wiring can be very challenging, as cameras may need to be placed in areas where running network cabling may be impossible or prohibitively expensive. Fortunately, it can be simple and cost effective to establish a wireless backhaul link, based on Wi-Fi technology and tailored to connect two or more fixed locations. There are multiple vendors offering many products with different capabilities and costs, so it can get confusing as to what is the best product for your application.
