NDOR – D1/D2 Camera Tower and Wireless Communications

  • Construction started in April of 2014 with Sadler Electric as the Prime Contractor for the Nebraska Department of Roads (NDOR).

  • Major work included the installation of (14) 40’ Camera Tower sites, (1) 50’ Camera tower site, (4) 60’ camera tower sites, and (3) Truss mounted Camera Tower sites throughout the Omaha metro and Lincoln, NE areas. All of the sites were required to be installed with new electrical services to power the cameras, routers, and electrical equipment.

  • Sadler Electric partnered with Firetide to provide a Point-to-Point Wireless 5GHz radio infrastructure to transmit the live video feeds back to existing NDOR fiber optic infrastructure. Sadler Electric performed a full site survey for the new radio links utilizing Pathloss 5 software, spectrum and bandwidth analysis, and geo-positioning equipment. Upon completion of the site survey, deficiencies were noted in the NDOR’s original provided design. Changes in the original design were implemented and resulted in a fully operational system without LOS or bandwidth issues.
