Case Study | The Petroleum Institue

 

The Customer

The Petroleum Institute University and Research Center (PI) was established in Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates in 2001 with a goal of becoming a world-class institution in both engineering education & energy industry research.

The Challenge

The Petroleum Institute required a fully redundant core for its Video Surveillance network. They also needed cutting edge switches that can work in line with the core without any compatibility issues. Dealing within the Oil & Gas Sector, Petroleum Institute had the below main concerns:

  • Security
  • Safety
  • Reliability

The Solution

DDG project assessment team backed by our pre-sales department conducted a thorough research to to understand the project requirement and scope. It was decided by the team in conjunction with the customer IT department that using HP Enterprise Network Solution in the best way forward. HPE provides one of the most reliable switches when it comes to Video Surveillance Systems.

The Benefits

The Petroleum Institute is now enjoying the benefits of a leading edge Video Surveillance network. The network is not only rock solid in performance but also addresses the customer security, safety and reliability concerns. The network is also future proof with scalability built into the architecture design.

The Customer

The Petroleum Institute University and Research Center (PI) was established in Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates in 2001 with a goal of becoming a world-class institution in both engineering education and energy industry research. PI currently has nearly 2000 undergraduate and graduate students, over 200 faculty, and has quickly become a leading teaching and research institution in the Middle East region. The PI's sponsors and affiliates include the Abu Dhabi Nation Oil Company (ADNOC) and four major international oil companies that include BP, Japan Oil Development Company, Shell and Total. The campus has modern instructional laboratories and classroom facilities, and will soon host a major research center, the PI research Center (PIRC) scheduled to open in 2016.

The Challenge

The Petroleum Institute required a fully redundant core for its Video Surveillance network. They also needed cutting edge switches that can work in line with the core without any compatibility issues. Security, Safety & Reliability was a prime concern for the institute dealing with oil and gas, and the wanted to have the most efficient and reliable products and deployment as possible.

The Solution

DDG project assessment team backed by our pre-sales department conducted thorough research to understand the project requirement and scope. It was decided by the team in conjunction with the customer IT department that using HP Enterprise Network Solution is the best way forward. HPE provides the most reliable switches when it comes to Videos Surveillance Systems. The Switches come with redundant power supply that are hot swappable and provides alternative solution if one supply fails. Following equipment was used to address the requirement:

  • PoE+ models for voice, video and wireless.
  • Supports ClearPass Policy Manger and Airwave Network Management.

Solution Design

The equipment deployed was latest in the industry and known for its performance in CCTV solutions. Our product was multipurpose and supported cross platform that can run any device with POE capability. POE functionality was an integral part of the solution. The Edge switches were connected to devices and uplinked to the redundant core switches where the ware directed to CCTV servers and recorders for video processing.

The deployment of the project proved to be quite challenging. This was mainly due to on-going infrastructure improvements and lack of basic facilities like electric wiring. However, the solution was deployed on time and on budget with all the required configurations & mandatories in place.
