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.”
