Mountain View, Calif., Feb. 17, 2009 While the worlds eyes were on President Barack Obamas historic inauguration late last month, Alvarions wireless video surveillance solutions among others were used by the U.S. government to ensure the safety of top U.S. leaders and a large crowd in presence during the days ceremonies.
