NVT Phybridge Case Study: Hayuelos Shopping Center
Hayuelos Shopping Center is one of the largest commercial hubs in the Colombian capital, receiving more than one million visitors each month. Today the mall 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 analog 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 its 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 its 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.
Hayuelos Shopping Center created an environmentally responsible plan to modernize the surveillance system. The organizations leveraged NVT Phybridge PoLRE PoE switches to:
- Reuse 100% of the existing and reliable wiring infrastructure, which prevented 100,000ft of cable from entering a landfill and significantly reduced material consumption.
- Prevent the installation of new intermediate server closets by using long-reach Power over Ethernet (PoE) switches; reducing ongoing energy consumption from power and cooling devices.
- Reduce the deployment time by 65% to decrease harmful emissions caused by traveling to and from the project site.
- Install 166 new IP cameras inside and outside the building, providing complete surveillance coverage and high-resolution footage to ensure the safety of all staff and visitors.
A Better Return on Investment
Hayuelos Shopping Center took a proactive approach to find new and better ways to support its digital transformation objectives in a financially and socially responsible manner. Hayuelos leveraged NVT Phybridge long reach Power over Ethernet switches to fast-tracked its IP security deployment and save thousands of dollars in infrastructure readiness costs.
