NVT Phybridge Introduces New Modern LAN Technology with the Launch of EC Extender Kits

NVT Phybridge expands its award-winning CLEER IP over Coax product family with the EC Extender Kits, making it more efficient for businesses around the world to move to IP and the Modern LAN.

Oakville, Ontario (June 26, 2018) – The NVT Phybridge EC Extender Kits are designed to supercharge the downlink ports of a standard Ethernet switch delivering PoE over Coax infrastructure with distances up to 4,000ft (1,220m). That’s 12X the reach of standard Ethernet switches, thus removing the costs and disruptions associated with multiple IDF closet requirements. Each EC Extender Kit is conveniently packaged and includes an EC-Link+ or EC4 Adapter, an EC-Base Extender, and an external power supply.

“The EC Extender Kits are the perfect addition to help us expand our product offering, making sure we can provide a solution for every customer need. The Extender Kits were designed to help customers enhance the capabilities of a standard ethernet switch by eliminating the 328ft (100m) reach limitations. Customers can extend IP/PoE 12X farther using the EC Extender Kits.” said John Croce, CEO of NVT Phybridge. “Businesses can now take full advantage of Modern LAN principles and avoid major traditional challenges as they look to connect IP endpoints to IP applications.”

The EC and CLEER series of products make modernization to IP simple, secure and cost- effective by leveraging new or existing coax infrastructure. The EC Extender Kits are enablers of Modern LAN principles and are IoTᴳ certified.

Success Video: Megaplaza Jaén Ensures Physical and Cyber Security While Modernizing to Bosch IP Cameras

Customer Success Story

Megaplaza Jaén is one of the largest shopping centers in Peru, located in the northern city of Jaén in the Cajamarca Region. Building a robust and complete surveillance solution was of paramount importance to the owners of this modern-day shopping center to ensure the security of all staff and visitors.

Physical Security

Today, the mall is host to a wide variety of businesses, including restaurants, retail outlets, banks, car dealerships, and a movie theatre. Megaplaza Jaén determined that to provide the most effective security to mall staff and visitors, the surveillance system needed to be IP-based, given the higher resolution and more comprehensive applications available. The immense size of the three-story shopping mall presented critical challenges in the implementation of an IP-based security system. The distances required to connect the cameras to areas inside and outside the mall was well beyond the 328ft reach limitations of standard Power over Ethernet (PoE) switches. Megaplaza Jaén had a robust coax wiring infrastructure throughout the entire facility that the owners were confident in leveraging to support the new surveillance system.

Although the project was facing challenging obstacles, nothing was going to interfere with Megaplaza Jaén’s commitment to safety. By applying Modern LAN* principles, Megaplaza Jaén discovered the long reach, coax to IP enabling CLEER switch. The solution was able to utilize the reliable coax infrastructure to transmit high-quality live video feeds to a centralized monitoring location. The long reach PoE capabilities ensured that cameras could be placed throughout the entire building, ensuring the safety of individuals in all locations including parking lots and loading areas.

Cyber Security

As more and more companies adopt the Internet of Things, cybersecurity has become a top concern. Companies of all sizes and all industries are at risk of malicious activity, especially individuals and groups attempting to steal consumer and company data. The Ponemon Institute found that 7 out of 10 organizations believe their security risk increased significantly in 2017.

In the connected world of the Internet of Things, each “thing” on the network represents a possible entrance for a hacker. In DarkTrace’s Global Threat Report from 2017, it was determined that hackers gained unauthorized access to networks through various IoT devices including smart artboards, thermometers, and server rooms.

For Megaplaza Jaén, the direct point-to-point network topology of the PoE enabling technology, along with the option for a firewall at the convergence point to the main network, ensures robust protection against unauthorized access. Also, the reduction of IDF closet requirements due to long reach PoE innovations means fewer server rooms to keep secure from hackers.

Environmental Responsibility

Megaplaza Jaén was awarded a 5-star IoTG (Internet of Things to the Power of Green) project rating for their environmentally responsible modernization to IP. The company avoided installing new Ethernet cabling and reduced IDF closet requirements by 90%, reducing the project’s e-waste, consumption of resources, and ongoing energy costs.
