Project Challenges:

The implementation encountered several challenges:

1. Wiring Challenges due to 12KM Pole-to-Pole Distance:

The extensive distance between poles posed difficulties in wiring, leading to potential connectivity issues.

2. Difficulty Working with Existing Poles and Transformers:

Working around current poles and transformers created logistical challenges and potential safety concerns for the installation team, making it difficult to navigate and execute the wiring work seamlessly.

3. Low Height of Power Cables:

The low height of power cables introduced risks of damage and accessibility issues.

4. Difficulty in Pole Drilling due to Galvanized Poles:

Galvanized poles presented challenges in terms of pole drilling, affecting the efficiency of the installation process.

5. Complications in Wire Crossing:

Wire crossing difficulties at various points introduced the risk of damage and signal interference.

Solutions to the Challenges:

To address the multifaceted security challenges, the project implemented a comprehensive set of solutions:

1. We implemented specialized long-distance wiring techniques, such as signal boosters and high-quality FIBER CABLES, to ensure reliable data transmission across the 12KM distance.


2. We conducted a thorough site survey to plan installations around existing configuration, ensuring minimal disruption and adhering to safety protocols. Collaborated closely with utility services to coordinate activities.

3. We elevated the height of power cables using additional support structures or pole extensions, reducing the risk of damage and ensuring better accessibility for maintenance and repairs.

4. We utilized specialized drilling equipment and techniques suited for 6m galvanized poles with Silver Paint, ensuring efficient and precise pole drilling without compromising structural integrity.


5. We implemented meticulous planning for wire routes, incorporating proper elevation and separation techniques to avoid crossing issues. Utilized stay wires and cable management systems to organize and secure wiring.

We installed 2 cameras at other locations and connected through the static IP for the successful completion of cable laying.

Solution: We implemented 14 Slot Media Converter Chassis and UPS (power backup for cameras) to ensure seamless communication between fiber cables and the cameras for real-time monitoring.

4. Use of Stay Wire for Fiber Cable Laying:

Objective: To ensure stability and longevity of the fiber cable infrastructure.

Solution: We employed stay wire during the fiber cable laying process, addressing cable crossing and fold-to-fold scenarios to enhance durability and prevent damage.

5. Industrial Standard Galvanized Poles with Foundations:

Objective: To provide stable and secure mounting for surveillance cameras.

Solution: We erected industrial standard galvanized poles with proper foundations to support the weight of bullet cameras. This ensures a stable platform for cameras and enhances the field of view.

6. 2-Core Power Cables with MCB Module Sockets:

Objective: To supply reliable power to surveillance cameras at each location.

Solution: We deployed 2-core power cables with 5 AMPS MCB (Miniature Circuit Breaker) module sockets to ensure a safe and controlled power supply for camera operation.

Project Closure:

Upon successful completion, the project Underwent a thorough review, included a final assessment of system functionality, user training, and documentation hand overed to the IDA Bollaram Security Department. The project closure marked by a formal sign-off from the project sponsor and key stakeholders.

1. Risk Management:

Identified risks included potential system compatibility issues, delays in equipment delivery, and challenges in configuring AI-based recognition. Mitigation strategies included thorough testing, proactive communication with the vendor, and contingency plans for unexpected delays.

2. Quality Assurance:

Regular quality checks conducted during and after the installation phase to make sure that the surveillance system meets predefined standards and effectively addresses the identified security challenges.

Control or Server Room Setup:

Setting up the control room for the IDA Bollaram project involves careful integration of components to ensure efficient monitoring and management of the surveillance system. Here's a detailed breakdown of the control room setup:
