GNP (Grupo Nacional Provincial) is one of the largest insurance providers in Mexico. The company has several offices throughout the country and primarily provides insurance policies for life, medical, automobile, home, and business. The organisation was relying on analog CCTV technology that was unreliable and outdated. GNP wanted to modernise from its outdated system and deploy a new IP surveillance solution to improve security and take advantage of enhanced features. Network barriers  Several network barriers needed to be addressed before the organisation could deploy the new IP security solution. A Coax infrastructure supported the existing CCTV system in each of the company’s locations. A Coax infrastructure supported the existing CCTV system in each of the company’s locations The customer had initially thought about ripping out the existing Coax-based infrastructure in each location and using fiber-optic cabling to extend connectivity beyond the 328ft (100m) reach limitation of standard Ethernet switches. However, this strategy would be extremely costly, disruptive, and time-consuming. GNP was also concerned with the potential business disruption and negative operational impacts as a result of the construction work needed to overhaul the network. The organisation required an innovative solution to achieve its digital transformation objectives. NVT Phybridge EoC  Given the customer’s modernisation challenges, Logen, the reseller partner, recommended NVT Phybridge EoC (Ethernet over Coax) innovations. Logen had used NVT Phybridge products in the past for many other projects and was confident in the technology. GNP was excited about the potential solution and organized a proof-of-concept to test the technology in one of its locations. CLEER24 switch  After a few simple setup steps, the NVT Phybridge CLEER24 switch transformed the customer’s existing and proven Coax-based infrastructure into a power-packed IP backbone. The CLEER24 switch delivers power and data over a single Coax cable up to 6,000ft (1,830m), which’s 18-times farther than a standard Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch. GNP was impressed with the results and decided to move forward with the project using the CLEER24 switch. The customer avoided traditional rip-and-replace strategy, leveraging the existing Coax infrastructure to achieve results Simple and quick installations GNP was delighted with the entire experience, using the CLEER24 switch to deploy more than 250 IP cameras across several locations. “Installing the CLEER24 switch was simple, quick, and did not require any special tools,” said Mario Gomez Alvarez. “The NVT Phybridge team provided excellent technical support and training materials.” The customer was able to avoid the traditional rip-and-replace strategy, leveraging the existing and proven Coax infrastructure to achieve incredible results. Simplify and accelerate the deployment by 40% Reduce total infrastructure costs by 50% Prevent service outages and operational disruption during the upgrade Eliminate IDF closet requirements Maintain a physically separate network for the new IP security devices Allocate infrastructure cost savings towards more IP devices and applications GNP took full advantage of the CLEER24’s feature set. The switches are stacked and configured for power redundancy. Unused ports are locked for enhanced security. All equipment is centralised in one location for better system control.

A large US grocery store chain needed to stop paying costly service charges to maintain its outdated TDM PBX voice system. The organisation wanted to implement a new IP-based communication solution across all locations. However, the customer was very concerned with the potential disruption and high costs to rip-and-replace the existing CAT3 voice network. Limitation of standard switches  The customer was relying on an aging, analog phone system and wanted to upgrade to a Unified Communications platform across all new and existing stores. However, like most businesses, the analog phones were supported with CAT3 wiring infrastructure, with many cable runs going well beyond the 328ft (100m) reach limitations of standard Ethernet switches. The customer was experiencing several challenges and was concerned with high costs & time requirements  The customer was experiencing several challenges and was concerned with: The extremely high cost and time requirements needed to remove and replace the existing, yet reliable CAT3 infrastructure Loss of revenue and business disruption during the modernisation process IDF closet requirements to support the new IP phones in all areas of the grocery stores, given the limited reach of standard Ethernet switches The grocery store chain was unsatisfied with traditional LAN design and delayed the project to search for an alternative solution. NVT Phybridge PoLRE® switch The customer learned about the award-winning NVT Phybridge PoLRE® (Power over Long Reach Ethernet) managed switch and engaged with one of their digital transformation experts to learn more. The PoLRE switch delivers Ethernet and PoE over a single-pair UTP wire with up to 1,200ft (365m) reach – that’s four times the reach of standard Ethernet switches. The customer was excited to see the solution in action and organized a no-obligation proof-of-concept to test the solution in their environment. IP infrastructure changes In just a few simple setup steps, the PoLRE switch transformed the customer’s existing voice infrastructure into an IP backbone with more than enough bandwidth to support the new IP phones. PoLRE’s extended reach capabilities ensured that the new IP phones were deployed exactly where the customer needed them without the need for multiple IDF closets along the way. “The customer was impressed with the switch’s ability to deliver PoE over the existing single-pair UTP cable at distances up to 1,200ft instead of the usual 328ft.
