When throwing a street party for 200,000 people, how do you keep the peace? To maintain a watchful eye over downtown revelers during Super Bowl week in 2008, the Phoenix Police Department quickly installed a wireless video surveillance system from Firetide, a manufacturer of mobile wireless IP products.
