NVT Phybridge news
In early 2017, the Colombian government made its state-of-the-art Army Aviation Logistics Center (Spanish acronym, CLAVE), fully operational. Designed and built by the U.S Army Corps of Engineers, CLAVE is an over 9,000 square meter facility designed to provide support for the transportation, storage, distribution, and security of the Colombian Army’s aeronautical equipment. To comply with international standards for aeronautical logistical activities, the implementation of a high-level security system was required, and this included deploying a complete IP CCTV surveillance system of over 100 cameras to monitor the entire centre and its surroundings. Requirement was for implementing an IP CCTV system that utilises the coaxial wiring in their new facility. However, barriers posed by long reach requirements between the cameras and surveillance control centre, and the financial costs associated with installing IDF closets to support the cameras at distances greater than those supported by standard Ethernet switches (328ft, 100m) – caused CLAVE to seek out a solution based on the principles of the Modern LAN, allowing them to deploy the new IP CCTV system quickly, efficiently, and affordably.Not only did the NVTP solution take the signal and transmit it through the wiring, but it also provided power to the camera" NVT Phybridge CLEER24 The Colombian Army was introduced to the NVT Phybridge CLEER24 (Coax Leveraged Ethernet Extended Reach) managed switch solution, by Colombian distributor SAC. The award-winning CLEER24 solution provides Ethernet and PoE+ over Coax with up to 2,000ft (610m) reach. In just 3 quick and easy setup steps, the plug-and-play switches transformed the cabling into the power-packed IP platform needed to support the new IP cameras for distances up to 2,000ft (610m) – 6Xs farther than standard Ethernet, with no need for costly IDF closets. “In our case where distance limitations were a critical issue, NVT Phybridge made all the difference when other solutions on the market could not,” said Paula Rosana Murillo, Business Development Coordinator at SAC. “Not only did the NVTP solution take the signal and transmit it through the wiring, but it also provided power to the camera.” Cost-saving security solution CLAVE was able to smoothly and flawlessly deploy 109 cameras across the entire facility, with virtually no disruption to operations and saving tens of thousands of dollars while doing so. For the integrator, this was a professionally enriching experience, “NVT Phybridge, through its Colombian distributor SAC, facilitated access to technical training and support – ensuring the proper usage of these products and allowing the integrator to have greater confidence in the implementation of NVTP technology,” commented Oscar Triviño, Project Manager in charge of the CLAVE facility construction. “The implementation of the NVTP solutions generated savings in wiring, electrical infrastructure, and manpower that were estimated at $56,000USD – with the connection of all cameras to the power source being achieved in the most effective way possible.”NVT Phybridge technology ensured the quality of all the video content, fully taking advantage of the quality, state-of-the-art cameras used in the project" IP surveillance and remote monitoring With CLEER24 technology, the customer was able to take full advantage of Modern LAN principles, fast-track their IP camera deployment, while eliminating risk and creating a robust platform that can be managed remotely: no Coax replacements, no service outages, no security risks, no network complexity, and no wasted budgets. “NVT Phybridge technology ensured the quality of all the video content, fully taking advantage of the quality, state-of-the-art cameras used in the project and providing an immensely satisfying result for the Colombian Army.”
A transportation agency needed to modernise its analogue CCTV systems and cameras to improve surveillance capabilities. But planning the coax infrastructure replacement raised many concerns and barriers, causing delays to the project. NVT Phybridge was trusted to rapidly enable the established cabling to support the new Axis IP devices exactly when and where the agency wanted them. “The NVT Phybridge technology allowed this customer to improve investigations and safety much faster and more cost-effectively than planned.” Steven Fair, EVP, NVT Phybridge. The agency wanted to upgrade its analogue CCTV systems and devices to newer, IP-enabled surveillance technology across multiple transit facilities spread throughout a vast metropolitan area. The driving requirement for the upgrade was twofold: to improve safety and security monitoring of riders 24/7, and to capture much higher-resolution video recordings for investigation of events. Ethernet over coax system The agency wanted to upgrade its analogue CCTV systems and devices to newer, IP-enabled surveillance technology The main challenge was physically replacing the existing coax with a new Ethernet infrastructure needed to support IP. The process would be lengthy, complex, costly, and disruptive to transit operations and rider services across hundreds of sites. Additionally, physical construction to replace the cabling and address IDF closet and reach requirements would impact transit customers’ access to services, and posed safety hazards to thousands of public transportation users each day. The transportation agency learned about NVT Phybridge Long Reach Ethernet over Coax IP-enabling solutions from their savvy Axis partner. A no-obligation proof of concept was arranged at one of transit stations, and in 3 simple setup steps the award-winning, plug-and-play NVTP EoC switch transformed the existing coax into a power-packed PoE/IP platform able to connect the new CCTV and IP cameras 6Xs farther than Ethernet—up to 2,000ft (610m)—with no IDF closets required along the way. NVTP completely eliminated the complexities and frustrations that had delayed the infrastructure upgrade for too long. Because NVTP innovations use the same repeatable, predictable, and scalable deployment methodology across every location, upgrading each of the many transit facilities would be simple and fast. The NVTP EoC switches fast-tracked the infrastructure upgrade, saving significant project time and costs by avoiding coax replacement Effective IP surveillance and security The agency’s decision to trust NVTP and Axis with the extensive security upgrade was right. The NVTP EoC switches fast-tracked the infrastructure upgrade, saving significant project time and costs by avoiding coax replacement. The partner was also able to accelerate the endpoints deployments with a simple swap-out of the existing analogue cameras for the Axis IP cameras. The agency’s new, powerful IP-based surveillance capabilities were up and running in record time at each location. The combined power of NVTP and Axis innovations rapidly enabled this agency to improve investigations and safety much faster than originally planned—without disrupting transit operations, impacting riders’ services, or wasting coveted budgets. Pleased with the result of the first several facilities upgrades, the transportation agency has decided to move forward with the remaining upgrades across their entire area using NVTP switches and Axis IP devices to get the job done right.
An art museum needed to upgrade its older analogue CCTV system with newer IP security technology to improve monitoring and recording capabilities. However, the customer faced the daunting challenge of first upgrading the Coax infrastructure to Ethernet before the new technology could be implemented. NVT Phybridge was able to rapidly upgrade the older infrastructure to support the new Axis IP devices exactly when and where the customer wanted them. Upgrading to IP-enabled surveillance The customer wanted to upgrade its older CCTV system to newer, IP-enabled surveillance technology. The driving requirement for the upgrade was twofold; to improve safety and security monitoring of visitors and staff, and to capture higher-resolution video recordings for incident investigations. The main challenge was physically replacing the existing Coax with the new Ethernet infrastructure needed. The process would be lengthy, complex, and disruptive to the business, as well, could pose potential safety hazards to hundreds of staff and thousands of visitors each week. It was determined that to better achieve the upgrade, each of the museum’s two locations be approached as separate projects. This posed the additional challenge of managing two completely different security systems – older Coax, newer IP - for an unknown period of time. The complexity of the upgrade was increasingly more frustrating, and all because of the existing Coax cabling. “When the customer chose NVT Phybridge and Axis, they got more than the best Coax to IP upgrade. They got implementation on their strict terms - no business disruptions, no compromised security, and within a tight budget”, said William Wu, Account Manager at Tops Digital Systems Upgrading museum’s second location The customer learned about the NVT Phybridge CLEER24 Long Reach PoE over Coax IP enabling switch. A no-obligation Proof of Concept was arranged, and in 3 simple setup steps, the plug-and-play CLEER24 transformed the Coax into a power-packed PoE/IP platform. CLEER24 fast-tracked the infrastructure migration, saving project time and costs In just a few minutes, the CLEER24 solution completely eliminated the complexities and frustrations of the infrastructure upgrade, and provided the flexibility to connect the Axis cameras 6Xs farther than standard Ethernet – up to 2,000ft (610m) - with no IDF closets required along the way. And because CLEER24 uses the same repeatable, predictable, and scalable deployment methodology across every location, upgrading the museum’s second location would be simple and fast. Saving project time and costs The customer’s decision to trust NVTP and Axis with their security upgrade paid off. CLEER24 fast-tracked the infrastructure migration, saving project time and costs.
