RADWIN solutions drive HD video surveillance during Pope’s visit to Philippines


RADWIN, the Israel based global provider of sub-6 GHz broadband wireless solutions, has announced that its wireless broadband radios were used to ensure the safety of the pope during his recent visit to the Philippines.

RADWIN’s radios were used to transmit real-time HD video, voice and data from locations visited by the pope back to a central command and control room. EBDI Philippines Inc., a leading system integrator in the Philippines and RADWIN’s partner, was in charge of overseeing project implementation.


Mike Potter, Director of EBDI: “RADWIN 5000 point-to-multipoint and RADWIN 2000 point-to-point radios enable high-definition video transmission 24×7 from any location. Extremely fast and simple to install, RADWIN’s solutions ensured the Pope’s safety throughout his visit by facilitating immediate detection and response to any security breaches and events. While traditional cellular and satellite links were cut off throughout the duration of the pope’s visit due to a tropical storm, RADWIN’s dedicated links guaranteed continuous transmission of mission-critical CCTV video and data communications.”

Joshua Mony, RADWIN General Manager, Southeast Asia & Oceania: “We are proud that our equipment helped secure Pope Francis’ visit to the Philippines. Our high-capacity, extra durable solutions deliver exceptional video quality and are ideal for monitoring mega events and mission-critical installations.”
