SimRush deployed to provide monitoring for 40 CCTV cameras on one site

The Challenge

A Security company needed a connectivity system that could effectively support the monitoring of 40 CCTV cameras on their client’s site.

The client’s BT line which was previously providing the connectivity for the monitoring had developed a fault and stopped working. The fault had an unknown resolution date leaving their client without a fully functioning CCTV system and no date for this to be restored in sight.

They needed a system that could be quickly deployed to get the monitoring back up and running as soon as possible. The solution needed to cope with the amount of traffic whilst still providing good broadband speeds for the monitoring to run smoothly.

The Solution

The security company provided a SimRush Pro system for their client. They deployed business grade hardware that could easily handle the traffic from the CCTV equipment.

To ensure there was enough bandwidth to support the monitoring of all 40 cameras, a second external SimRush Outdoor Unit was included in the set up. This ensured there were two paths out to the internet for the traffic to use.

The static public IP addressing service enabled easy remote access to the CCTV cameras to support the monitoring that the client wanted.

They were also able to offer their customer a short term, 30-day Unlimited data SIM contract, instead of an expensive, small allowance fixed IP SIM. This meant that the client wasn’t tied into a long contract and could easily switch back to their BT line once the fault was fixed. The SimRush could then be kept on as a reliable failover business solution.

The Result

Monitoring restored and a happy client!

Partnering with SimRush enabled the security company to provide an ideal short-term fixed IP connectivity solution that was rapidly deployed to keep the client’s CCTV professional monitoring system running.
