Firetide HotView Pro



HotView Pro provides centralized management and control of single or multiple Firetide networks with an intuitive web based user interface. It is a sophisticated, yet simple-to-use platform for configuring, monitoring, and managing HotPort® mesh nodes, HotPoint® access points, and HotClient™ customer premises equipment (CPE).

Firetide Multi-Service Network

The Firetide mesh system provides a high capacity, self-healing wireless mesh network that operates seamlessly indoors and outdoors. Designed for maximum performance, scalability, mobility and security, the mesh delivers throughput of up to 300 Mbps outdoors and 400 Mbps indoors.

Firetide’s patented AutoMesh™ routing protocol makes the mesh fully self-forming and self-healing, to afford rapid deployment and dependable operation for both static and mobile mesh infrastructures. Mesh-wide performance is constantly optimized with unique AutoMesh features such as flow based routing, congestion control, cost-based bandwidth metrics and industry-leading low latency. Multiple auto-sensing Ethernet ports on each HotPort node create a virtual Ethernet switch, providing direct connectivity to devices such as video surveillance cameras and Wi-Fi access points, forming a high-performance multi-service infrastructure. The mesh nodes can operate in bonded or linear radio mode and support 2.4 GHz, 4.9 GHz and 5 GHz bands.


Optimal Network Performance

The HotView Pro software incorporates a number of unique flow control, traffic prioritization and management capabilities to deliver high throughput and low latency needed to support concurrent voice, video and data communications.

Highly Scalable Networks

The virtual-Ethernet architecture of HotPort systems combined with the AutoMesh routing protocol provide superior scalability with the following features:

EthernetDirect™ – With EthernetDirect a HotPort mesh can be seamlessly extended to a wired backbone or any two mesh nodes can be interconnected with a high speed full-duplex Ethernet wired link, reducing overall hop counts. This feature also allows two portions of a single mesh network to be linked across a routed IP network.

MeshBridge™ Integration – The MeshBridge feature is used to connect multiple mesh networks into a single, integrated mesh environment with up to 1000 nodes. A MeshBridge link can be established using a direct wired connection, or made via any separate switched or routed LAN or WAN infrastructure. MeshBridge helps extend reach and enhance performance, and enables the use of multiple RF spectrums and channels in campus or metropolitan applications.

Internetworking with Other Domains – Any HotPort mesh can internetwork with any other LAN/WAN domain, including the Internet or an enterprise network. A node designated as a Network Gateway Interconnect (NGI) provides the basic connection; multiple NGI nodes add multi-path performance and redundancy. A standby Gateway Server can be optionally configured to ensure seamless failover from standby to active. A separate node can be designated as a Gateway Server to consolidate multiple NGIs into a single, high-bandwidth link. HotView Pro also supports IEEE 802.1q VLAN tagging of packets traversing the mesh to and from other network domains.

Maximum End-to-End Security

The HotPort system provides a set of layered security options in order to ensure multi-level data integrity, access control, and intrusion protection both across the mesh and to the client.

Unmatched Mobility

In addition to supporting mobile Wi-Fi clients as they roam from cell-to-cell, HotPort 6000 mesh nodes provide an entirely mobile infrastructure. This enables unique applications such as real time video and high-quality voice calls as well as uninterrupted Wi-Fi access on moving vehicles such as police cars, fire trucks, buses and trains. The HotPort AutoMesh protocol delivers seamless roaming with zero-packet loss and zero-handoff delay.

Access Features

HotView Pro network management software provides performance and statistics monitoring for HotPoint and HotClient access products. Access points can be connected to HotPort mesh nodes or directly to a wired infrastructure.

Zero Configuration - HotView Pro network management software allows HotClient CPEs to connect to access points without the user having to configure the CPE. Whenever a CPE connects to HotPoint, it authenticates with the RADIUS server bundled with HotView Pro. Once the device is authenticated the configuration is automatically downloaded to the CPE over the wireless interface. The RADIUS server also provides accounting for the clients and CPE devices connected to HotPoint access points.

Client Based Policy Management - With the HotView network management software the network operator can configure policies on the clients that associate to the access points. The operator can monitor periods of inactivity for every client and take preconfigured actions.

Service Level Agreements - HotView Pro network management software features the ability to configure and enforce shared and dedicated service level agreements (SLAs) between access points and CPEs. The Service Level Agreements ensure that there is no bandwidth abuse. For instance, an SLA might establish that laptops that are connected to an access point are allowed to download 1.5 Mbps and upload 1 Mbps.

Hotspot Features - HotView allows configuration of layered hotspots within one geographic area. Using VLANs, you can configure different logical networks for different types of users within one physical network. For example, police, the public, and city officials can log in to separate virtual networks. Additional hotspot features include captive portal management and the ability to create a ‘walled garden.’ Captive portal management feature facilitates user authentication and grants full or limited (‘walled garden’) access.
