Winncom supplies the latest GigE technology equipment by BridgeWave for EZ Wireless successful deployment for DOJ

Winncom has become a part of the successful deployment completed by its long-term partner ezWireless that installed Gigabit Ethernet wireless links to enable faster speeds at lower costs for the State of Oregon's Judicial Department.

The Oregon Judicial Information Network (OJIN) traditionally linked 70 remote sites to its network backbone using a multitude of traditional leased-line T1s.

Network expansion from applications like public Internet kiosks in Oregon’s courtrooms, led to an evaluation of high-speed networking alternatives. After researching different wireless technologies, the OJD determined that only Gigabit wireless could deliver fiber-like performance, reliability and security without costly, recurring fees.

They evaluated BridgeWave's AR60 product, a GigE link that operates in the license-free 60GHz frequency range. The bridge also includes a unique AdaptRate feature, which momentarily switches from GigE to 100Mbps transmission to ensure continuous operation during intense downpours. Using BridgeWave's link analysis tool, the OJD determined "five nines" network availability was achievable for the one-mile link.

Supplied by Winncom Technologies and aided by our long-term partner, a Portland, Ore.-based broadband wireless technology solutions provider ezWireless, the OJD selected a "double hop" configuration that linked their Network Operations Center with the state’s Public Services building a block away. That then connected to the fiber hub at the Supreme Court.

EzWireless says 60GHz links are the most economical 100Mbps and GigE links that can be deployed at distances of up to 1.5 miles. They are license-free, yet are virtually interference-immune. The bandwidth increase improved customer support, enabling the OJD to restore a remote desktop in less than five minutes. The future-proof solution also scales easily to meet growing capacity requirements.

ezWireless knows a thing or two about networking. EzWireless created a new sophisticated system called, Incident Response Information System (IRIS) to allow first responders and emergency management personnel to have accurate, mobile information in real-time as they respond to any emergency. They designed and built a mobile, secure, broadband and web-based network covering 700 square miles in Eastern Oregon which enabled local fire & police departments in seven cities, parts of three counties and two states.
