NVT Phybridge Case Study: Police Department

3-minute read time

Summary

  • A U.S. police precinct was relying on outdated analog security cameras that were becoming increasingly unreliable
  • The customer decided it was time to upgrade its analog surveillance system to improve security and safety throughout the precinct

Problem

The customer wanted to deploy Panasonic IP cameras throughout the precinct for improved video quality and enhanced capabilities. However, like most organizations, the precinct had a limited budget to deal with network requirements and wanted to avoid the high costs involved with ripping and replacing its existing coax-based infrastructure.

Solution

Given the customer’s objectives and challenges, reseller partner Minuteman Security Technologies recommended the NVT Phybridge CLEER24 Ethernet over Coax switch. Minuteman Security Technologies had used NVT Phybridge products in the past and was confident in the technology’s quality and performance.

The enterprise-grade CLEER24 managed switch delivers Ethernet and PoE+ over any new or existing Coax-based infrastructure with up to 6,000ft (1,830m) reach – that’s 18 times farther than standard Power over Ethernet solutions. The customer was impressed with the technology and decided to move forward with the project, having found the perfect solution.

Result

The Police Department now has a high-quality Panasonic video surveillance system to protect its officers and visitors. Minuteman Security Technologies used the CLEER24 Ethernet over Coax switch to leverage the existing and reliable infrastructure, avoiding the costly rip-and-replace upgrade strategy. Deployment was quick and straightforward, with no renovations or disruption. The entire 20 camera solution was deployed within two weeks of ordering the CLEER24 switch.

The customer took a proactive approach to find a better way to achieve its digital transformation objectives in a financially and socially responsible manner. The customer created a physically separate, robust, and reliable security network without risk or compromise, thanks to the simplicity of the CLEER24 solution.
