Reseller partner recommends NVT Phybridge FLEX switches to improve digital transformation outcomes

3-minute read time

Summary

  • New Mexican golf club needed an IP security system
  • Several IP camera locations were beyond the 328ft (100m) reach of standard Power over Ethernet switches
  • BETA Security leveraged NVT Phybridge PoE switches to overcome the customer’s challenges

Problem

A new golf club in Mexico needed to deploy an IP surveillance system. When the golf club was designed and built, the developers did not consider the need for a surveillance installation when designing the underground pipes for wiring. The reseller partner, BETA Security, called in NVT Phybridge to help find a solution to the customer’s digital transformation barriers.

Solution

After assessing the customer’s environment, Sergio Nava, Operations Director at BETA Security, recommended the FLEX switch. The NVT Phybridge FLEX switch delivers up to 50 Watts of power (PoE++) and 10/100/1000 Mbps symmetrical, full-duplex, over multi-pair UTP cabling with up to 2,000ft (610m) reach, which is six times farther than standard switches.

The customer was impressed and requested a no-obligation proof-of-concept to test the solution on-site at no additional cost. After a few simple setup steps, the FLEX switch created a robust and reliable PoE backbone for the IP cameras with far less intermediate equipment needed along the way.

Result

BETA Security used the NVT Phybridge FLEX switch to enable new IP cameras exactly where the customer needed them. BETA Security estimates the FLEX switch reduced network infrastructure costs by 65% compared to alternative solutions, including wireless and fiber optic installations. Although fiber optic cable was used, the FLEX switch significantly reduced the need for increased fiber optic cabling. “The implementation experience was quick and simple thanks to the intuitive GUI interface,” said Sergio Nava. “The software’s interface is easy to use and graphically superior to other solutions.”

The FLEX switch was simple to implement with the existing network equipment and reduced the overall deployment time by 33%. The FLEX switch delivers high-quality video feeds to the VMS in real-time. “It was a great experience working with the FLEX switch,” said Sergio Nava. “We also connected the FLEX switch to access control equipment to read equipment tags and plates in real-time.”
