Video Surveillance

Proxicast's LAN-Cell 3G/4G Cellular Router Is The Professional's Choice
Video surveillance (CCTV) systems are increasingly utilizing IP-based cameras and incorporating the Internet for communications to decrease costs and increase remote monitoring flexibility. Cellular carriers are racing to roll out ever-faster 3G/4G wireless broadband technologies for Internet service. The convergence of these trends is rapidly expanding the number of situations where video security applications can be deployed quickly and economically. What has been missing is a simple way to link video surveillance systems to these new high-speed 3G/4G cellular data networks.

Internet Enable Your Cameras
The Proxicast LAN-Cell 3G/4G cellular router is the perfect communications gateway for providing remote monitoring and surveillance via IP cameras. Our customers have deployed the LAN-Cell for applications such as construction site surveillance, video motion detection, time-lapse imagery, and traffic cameras. You can even easily add an inexpensive webcam to your other LAN-Cell connected data collection equipment for enhanced security and monitoring of your remote sites. The LAN-Cell makes it easy to access your cameras over the Internet.

Any Camera, Any DVR, Any Network
Ethernet-based IP cameras can be connected directly to one of the LAN-Cell's 4 Ethernet LAN ports. Connect WiFi cameras to the LAN-Cell built-in 802.11 b/g/n Access Point, eliminating the need for site-wide network cabling when deploying multiple cameras and making it harder for the video signal to be interrupted. You can even control sophisticated Pan-Tilt-Zoom cameras and Digital Video Recorders from anywhere in the world. Network cameras from manufacturers such as Axis, D-Link, Linksys, Panasonic, Sony, and others have been used successfully with the LAN-Cell 3G router.

Connect Multiple Cameras
Multiple cameras at each site can be accessed using the LAN-Cell's Port Redirection feature without changing the cameras' default communications settings. Use your existing camera monitoring applications to seamlessly connect to your remote cameras over the Internet.

Excellent For Mobile In-Vehicle Applications
Mobile access to the Internet can offer a whole new level of security onboard vehicles such as cars, taxis, police cars, limos, motor coaches, buses, school buses, boats and even commuter trains. In private vehicles or a public vehicles, onboard video surveillance is a popular and growing security application. You can easily put together your own custom mobile video solution by connecting a LAN-Cell 3G/4G router to any Internet enabled digital video recorder (DVR) with cameras attached.

High Speed Networks
The LAN-Cell supports all of the latest high-speed 3G/4G (LTE and HSPA+) cellular standards which provide the bandwidth necessary for fast frame rate and high resolution.  In the US, LTE networks currently offer a maximum of 30+ Mbps down 10+ Mbps up. HSPA+ networks currently offer a maximum of 21 Mbps down 6 Mbps up. Real world performance depends on a number of factors, but the LAN-Cell automatically maximizes the available bandwidth and transmits as fast as the cellular connection will allow.

Save Money 
Customers can save money by using the LAN-Cell's Ethernet switch, integrated 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi access point and router features to share a single Internet connection for all of their remote cameras and security devices.   The LAN-Cell port redirection and end-to-end VPN capabilities allows multiple cameras at each site to be accessed without changing the cameras' default communications settings or worrying about carrier port restrictions.

Easy To Install 
The LAN-Cell 3G/4G router is also well suited for mobile video surveillance trailers and vehicles.  The LAN-Cell small size and rugged steel chassis makes it easy to integrate into existing security enclosures and cabinets.  The LAN-Cell runs on 12 VDC and has a very low current draw.  It can even be operated from a solar power source.
