Reliable, scalable, easy to install, and suitable for the most demanding wireless applications, Cisco® Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul is a leading-edge solution for vehicle connectivity for mission-critical applications. Developed by Fluidmesh Networks – now part of Cisco – the solutions portfolio covers Point-to-Point (PTP) and Point-to-Multipoint (PTMP) links as well as complex mesh networks and high-throughput, low-latency mobility communications for vehicles.

Wireless solutions for industrial applications

Transportation

Transportation

The demand of data throughput for moving vehicles is constantly increasing. New applications include Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC), sensors, video data offload, onboard Wi-Fi, and real-time security video monitoring. The Cisco solution for vehicle mobility is the first trackside train-to-ground system to be deployed successfully anywhere in the world. This offering runs seamlessly on high-speed and commuter trains, buses, ferries, and automobiles, making it the ideal choice for maximizing passenger satisfaction, safety and control applications, and vehicle-to-vehicle connections.

Ports, terminal operations, and intermodal facilities

Ports, terminal operations, and intermodal facilities

Ports and intermodal facilities represent a crucial transit point for valuable goods and are required to be efficient, safe, and secure. Cisco Ultra- Reliable Wireless Backhaul technology supports data communication where cabled networks can’t be used, enabling key applications such as automation and video control on Ship-to-Shore (STS) cranes, Rubber-Tired Gantry (RTG) cranes, Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs), and terminal tractors. With numerous successful deployments of crane automation, Wi-Fi backhaul, and video surveillance, Cisco Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul is the ideal solution for rapid, scalable, and cost-effective setup.

Smart cities

Smart cities

Imagine a city where information can flow in real time, driving informed decision making about health, safety, and the environment. In a “smart city” real-time traffic sensing and intelligent routing, local pollution monitoring, and video surveillance are fully integrated. Cisco Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul high-performance mesh infrastructure enables these applications and many more. Safety is enhanced, emergency response is better, traffic lights are under control, the city runs more efficiently, and Wi-Fi can be enabled for historically underserved areas.

Mining

Mining

Mine automation boosts productivity, helps ensure consistent operations, and promotes worker safety. Data communication aimed at minimizing machine downtime and dangerous operation is the key to keeping the mine running smoothly. Cisco Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul technology enables vehicle-to-ground communication for vehicle automation and realtime video monitoring with low latency and seamless handoff for even the most critical applications.

Oil and gas

Oil and gas

The Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)-based technology used by Cisco Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul creates a flexible, adaptable wireless infrastructure enabling data connection for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), condition monitoring, smart grids, video surveillance, and Voice over IP (VoIP) backhaul. Industrial devices, sensors, and security and control equipment can be connected in large, hard-to-wire sites, such as oil rigs, offshore platforms, refineries, and oilfields. All Cisco Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul products are built to exacting, rugged standards required for rough outdoor use.

Campus and education

Campus and education

Consistent broadband connectivity is a necessity for any high school, college, or university. The cost of extending wired infrastructure makes wireless the perfect solution to provide connectivity in hard-to-wire locations. Multi-topology capabilities and ease of deployment make Cisco Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul the perfect solution for outdoor backhaul applications. Right now, we connect thousands of young scholars while helping campus security officers protect students and faculty members.

Manufacturing and corporations

Manufacturing and corporations

Cisco Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul gives corporations and large industrial plants an easy and secure way to expand their networks. Part of the network backbone, these products enable high data throughput to reach the edge with quick and easy deployment. Proven technology enables your low-latency, mission-critical condition monitoring, security, and automation initiatives. Capitalizing on the strength of wireless mesh architecture, Cisco Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul technology creates a wireless infrastructure for data, video, and audio streaming.

Airplanes

Airplanes

Boring flights with a slow internet connection (or none at all) are a thing of the past. Patented Cisco Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul wireless technology can connect airplanes to ground infrastructure, enabling a reliable onboard Wi-Fi internet connection on any aircraft. Applications include surfing the web, making VoIP phone calls, and even streaming an in-flight movie.

Drones and robotics

Drones and robotics

Robotic, unmanned technology is revolutionizing many industries. The innovations are incorporating more data-demanding sensor and video platforms that require low-latency, reliable communications at all times. The MPLS-based wireless protocol and field-proven performance of Cisco Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul are used to establish stable, reliable, and fast connections to robotic systems to stream video and controls over long distances in challenging environments.

Government and military

Government and military

Communication is at the core of successful security and tactical operations. Cisco Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul networks are deployed for security and video surveillance by some of the most elite rapid-response and law enforcement agencies around the world. These wireless solutions have been used by professionals in hostage situations, war zones, and remote border areas to provide mission critical connectivity.

Fixed infrastructure

Fixed infrastructure

A wireless infrastructure network consists of data connections between radios that are attached to fixed structures: poles, towers, buildings, etc. The layout and data communication can be implemented through PTP, PTMP, and mesh topologies, or any hybrid of these, to efficiently “connect the dots.” The network can be implemented in a structured way for permanent use, or in an ad hoc manner for temporary connectivity.

Today, Cisco Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul supports a wide array of wireless backbone needs, including Wi-Fi backhaul, Closed-Circuit TV (CCTV), and emergency response.

Moving vehicles

Moving vehicles

A mobile wireless infrastructure network consists of data connections between radios deployed on vehicles and fixed structures (V2I) or between vehicles alone (V2V). Such a network needs to support seamless handoff, low latency and data prioritization, and intelligent roaming decisions. Cisco Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul technology is the best choice for high-performance, stable data streams between a fixed trackside infrastructure and a moving vehicle. This suite of solutions supports data-streaming applications for high-speed trains, metros, mining trucks, police cars, robots, and others.
