Sports Center Changes the Conversation; Leverages Existing Infrastructure to Improve Their IP Modernization Outcomes

A Sports and Recreation Center in Mexico was relying on an outdated security system that could no longer provide the required capabilities. The organization decided to deploy a new Axis IP solution to provide the safest facility for healthy recreation. The center is a place where sports and culture come together to contribute to the physical, intellectual and social development of the community. The organization promotes honesty, diversity, and participation; ensuring everyone can contribute to creating a better world.

One of the organization’s core values is to continuously improve service quality and member experience. However, while planning their IP upgrade, the organization became concerned with establishing the necessary infrastructure to effectively and securely support the new Axis IP surveillance system. The large Sports and Recreation Center is comprised of several indoor and outdoor facilities; including soccer fields, tennis courts, swimming pools, basketball courts, gymnasiums, and multi-purpose rooms. The size and diversity of the facility left the organization concerned with:

  • Extremely high costs to establish new infrastructure in each building – and connect the infrastructure in each building with new fiber-optic cabling
  • Long deployment times to establish the necessary infrastructure and implement the new Axis IP solution
  • Disruption to members and network downtime caused by the network overhaul

Change the Conversation; Improve Your Outcome

Given the customer’s needs, reseller partner, Panaseg, was confident in recommending Modern LAN design and introduced the customer to the NVT Phybridge FLEX solution. The customer had used NVT Phybridge products in the past with great success and was confident in the solution. Modern LAN principle #3 suggests leveraging new PoE innovations to simplify the modernization to IP and improve return on investment. The customer was satisfied and excited to use the FLEX switch to leverage their existing infrastructure to simplify the deployment.

After a few simple setup steps, the award-winning FLEX switch, with SmartPathPoE™ technology, transformed the customer’s existing multi-pair infrastructure into a robust and reliable PoE backbone for the new IP communication system. The long-reach capabilities ensured that the organization could support the new Axis IP cameras with up to 2,000ft (610m) reach – 6 times farther than standard PoE switches. By eliminating the rip-and-replace requirement, the Sports Center reduced project costs and disruption while eliminating risk, network complexity, and cybersecurity concerns.

“I highly recommend the FLEX solution from NVT Phybridge”, said Octavio Villa, Sales Director at Panaseg. “NVT Phybridge helps us bring great value to our customers with long reach PoE solutions that can leverage existing infrastructure to support IP. Product quality is great, and the support team is knowledgeable and helpful”.

The Sports and Recreation Center took a pro-active approach to find new and better ways to support their IP modernization objectives in a financially and socially responsible manner. The customer changed the conversation around LAN design to improve their outcome; leveraging Modern LAN principles and NVT Phybridge PoE innovations to:

  • Deploy 250 new Axis IP cameras across the recreation center
  • Reduce the overall deployment time by more than 3 months
  • Reduce infrastructure costs by 50%
  • Avoid installing 7,500 pounds of cable
  • Eliminate the need to install multiple IDF closets
  • Simplify PoE network requirements

Additionally, Modern LAN principles and NVT Phybridge PoE innovations help our partners:

  • Accelerate and increase revenue recognition

Hayuelos Shopping Center is one of the largest commercial hubs in the Colombian capital, receiving more than one million visitors each month. Today the shopping center is host to a wide variety of shops and spaces throughout its 120,000 square meter facility, including a supermarket, a gym, a movie theatre and an indoor go-kart track. Due to the expansion of the mall and the surrounding population, the analogue surveillance system that was in place could not accommodate the growing demands of the mall, nor could it meet security and control challenges. Hayuelos Shopping Center required a modern IP surveillance system to ensure the safety of all staff and visitors.

Hayuelos Shopping Center is committed to environmental responsibility through their Haystacks program, which includes energy and water saving initiatives, wastewater treatment from food areas, and disposal sites for electronic waste. While planning the modernization of their surveillance system, the mall became very concerned with the project’s potential impact on the environment, especially ripping-and-replacing several tons of wiring throughout the building. Hayuelos required a solution that shared the same commitment they have to the environment.

Environmental Stewardship

With project partners Group 4 Securicor, Milestone Systems, Axis, and NVT Phybridge, Hayuelos Shopping Center created an environmentally responsible plan to modernize the surveillance system. By leveraging Modern LAN design principles and PoLRE® long reach switch innovation, Hayuelos was able to:

  • Reuse 100% of the existing and reliable wiring infrastructure, which prevented 100,000ft of cable from entering a landfill. Eliminating the need to rip-and-replace also significantly reduced the amount of materials consumed and waste generated by the project.
  • Prevent the installation of new intermediate server closets by using innovative long reach PoE technology; reducing material and ongoing energy consumption from power and cooling devices.
  • Reduce the deployment time by 30%; decreasing the amount of travel to and from the mall during the modernization and minimizing the harmful emissions to the environment.
  • Install 166 new Axis IP cameras inside and outside the building; providing complete surveillance coverage and high-resolution footage to ensure the safety of all staff and visitors.

IoTG (Internet of Things to the Power of Green) measures and recognizes organizations that modernize to the Internet of Things with an environmentally responsible process. Hayuelos Shopping Center received a 5-star rating for their digital transformation.

A Better Return on Investment

Hayuelos Shopping Center took a pro-active approach to find new and better ways to support their IP modernization objectives in a financially and socially responsible manner. By applying Modern LAN principles and leveraging innovative switch technology, Hayuelos fast-tracked their IP deployment and saved thousands of dollars on infrastructure that can be reallocated to ROI driving applications.
