ACTi’s partner in Thailand – C.M.S. Control System Co., LTD successfully helped Siam Commercial Bank Suvarnabhumi Airport Branch to complete a hybrid CCTV + IP Surveillance System.
Suvarnabhumi Airport is the new Bangkok International Airport (BKK). All domestic and international flights now arrive to and depart from this airport. So you could imagine how significant the security is in all the airport bank branches.
Why use IP?
There are 19 Siam Commercial Bank Branches in Suvarnabhumi Airport. Distance between each branch was an issue. Moreover, Suvarnabhumi Airport did not allow contractors to wire any further cables. Therefore, only the existing fiber optic infrastructure can be taken into consideration. Due to the limited time for the installation, finally C.M.S. decided to use the fiber optic network to build up the security system.
With 60 pieces of ACTi Video Server SED-2120 installed in 19 branches, all the analogue cameras’ video can be transmitted over the fiber optic network and sent back to the control center (called “Node Room”).
In the Node Room, 60 pieces of Video Transcoder SED-3200 were set up for converting digital back to analogue. Then all the analogue streams are recorded in the DVR and managed by CMS software which Siam Commercial Bank had already purchased.
Here, C.M.S. offered a perfect solution which fits end user’s installation environment including existing network infrastructure and DVR system. While traditional CCTV solutions are still being used by many security installers, how to solve the problems which cannot be improved by old solution becomes the key to success.
