We want to be safe and the FCC is helping. The FCC reserves valuable radio frequencies for public safety authorities that can be used for Ultra-Reliable wireless video surveillance. These frequencies are very advantageous and are available across the United States. A license is completely free, it's easy to get and typically can be obtained in 48 hours. The FCC has only issued licenses in less than 3% of potential coverage areas so these frequencies have incredibly low background noise. The use of these reserved frequencies can enable our city's safety professionals to better provide for our individual safety. The reserved public safety frequencies are in the 4.9Ghz “Public Safety Band” and is protected by the FCC to ensure that only authorized public safety usage is allowed. This restriction enhances video reliability because the radio can operate without potential interference from consumer products that share the unlicensed 5Ghz, 2.4Ghz or 900Mhz bands. Huge installation growth opportunities exist now that 4.9Ghz radios cost the same as 5Ghz unlicensed radios and free licensing webinars are enabling quick licensing for immediate deployment.
Why do you need to point your wireless antenna? Industrial wireless antennas come in a very wide varity of shapes, colors and designs. Diretional antennas need to be pointed at eachother in order to opperate. Omni-Directional antennas still need to be used in a way that allows for the largest amount of "gain" or signal that is transmitted or recieved.
