A golf club in Mexico has been installed with NVT Phybridge’s FLEX switches as part of its IP surveillance system. When designing and building the golf course, developers did not consider the need for a surveillance system to be installed using the underground pipes and wiring.

BETA Security, who were the reseller partner, chose NVT Phybridge to offer a solution to the golf course’s digital transformation barriers.

After an initial assessment of the course’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 and 10/100/1000 Mbps symmetrical, full-duplex, over multi-pair UTP cabling with up to 2,000ft (610m) in reach, which is six times farther than standard switches.

The customer requested a no-obligation proof-of-concept to test the solution on-site and after setup, the FLEX switch created a robust and reliable PoE backbone for the IP cameras with less intermediate equipment needed along the way.

BETA Security used the NVT Phybridge FLEX switch to enable new IP cameras 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 with the GUI interface,” said Nava.

The FLEX switch was implemented with the existing network equipment and reduced the overall deployment time by 33% and it delivers high-quality video feeds to the VMS in real-time. Nava added: “We also connected the FLEX switch to access control equipment to read equipment tags and plates in real-time.”
