Atlanta Police and One Ring Networks Team Up to Fight Crime the Hi-Tech Way

Next Generation Wireless Technology Puts Eyes on Mean Streets

ATLANTA, GA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 28, 2007 -- It's the intersection of cutting-edge technology and the desire to reduce crime in Atlanta that brought together Atlanta Police and wireless network provider One Ring Networks.

Today the Atlanta Police Foundation hosted a press conference to announce the deployment of surveillance cameras throughout downtown to better monitor high-crime areas and provide quicker response.

"The surveillance program is made possible by relatively new wireless technology that provides high bandwidth communications beyond what copper-based services offer and at a much lower cost," said Matt Liotta, CEO of One Ring Networks. "Fixed wireless communications afford the ability to relay video images from cameras in awkward places where traditional broadband carriers can't reach. That video feed is then routed back to monitors observed by Atlanta Police."

There are now approximately 12 video cameras in place throughout downtown to help Atlanta Police better monitor the most dangerous areas of the city. The cameras have already played a major role in reducing crime.
