Vietnam Bike Parts Maker Pedals to Perfect Surveillance with Superfast Site-to-Site VPN
In 2020, SR SUNTOUR Cycling faced government requirements for continuous surveillance of its entire Binh Duong factory and an offsite warehouse. This necessitated a high-performance site-to-site VPN to transmit IP camera feeds from the warehouse to the factory for storage on NAS devices. However, its network was not unified and was cobbled together from various brands – including some consumer-grade products – leading to poor network performance and difficult management. Like many factories needing to connect more network and extra-low voltage (ELV) infrastructure like surveillance cameras, the company found it difficult to manage many connected devices from different manufacturers. It turned to eSafe360, a system integrator specializing in ICT and ELV infrastructure. After evaluating the case, eSafe360 knew Zyxel’s solutions were up to the challenge. Zyxel’s USG FLEX 500 and USG FLEX 100 firewalls were installed in the factory and warehouse respectively, creating reliable, high-speed site-to-site VPN channels to transmit the video feeds in real time and lag-free. Zyxel’s GS1350 switches were used to connect and power the IP cameras. “Zyxel's solutions have allowed us to easily unify the site’s infrastructure and meet the customer's needs,” eSafe360 CTO Faraday Huang said.
Network speed and stability improved significantly. Transmitting surveillance footage has gone from taking hours to minutes, and network management has become much easier, too.
