A property management group wanted to improve wireless connectivity by deploying modern Wi-Fi access points throughout one of its historically preserved properties. However, historical preservation laws prevented the organization from re-wiring network infrastructure, opening walls, or changing a building’s structure to protect its iconic appearance. “Rewiring means construction, which in historic buildings is a very expensive proposition,” said the project’s Network Architect.
After thoroughly researching potential solutions, the property management firm discovered NVT Phybridge Ethernet over Coax (EoC) solutions and contacted NVT Phybridge directly to organize a no-obligation proof-of-concept. In just a few simple set-up steps, the NVT Phybridge EoC switches transformed the customers' existing coax infrastructure into a robust and secure IP backbone for the new Wi-Fi access points.
NVT Phybridge EoC switches deliver up to 50 watts of power (PoE++) and 10/100 Mbps symmetrical, full-duplex, over coax cabling with up to 6,000ft (1,830m) reach, which is 18 times farther than standard solutions.
The property management firm estimated that NVT Phybridge’s networking products reduced infrastructure costs by more than $60,000 and prevented over 2 tons of cabling e-waste. “The NVT Phybridge switches cut [deployment] times in half by removing infrastructure complexity,” said the Network Architect. “NVT Phybridge made this project possible, regardless of cost. [The project] would not have been possible without the long-reach EoC switches and the ability to pass PoE over coax. NVT Phybridge technology has expanded the types of properties we can bring into our hotel portfolio, as we can onboard them faster and for significantly less money. NVT Phybridge was the perfect fit for our requirements and essentially made the project possible.”
