Allied Telesis and Panasonic to provide ICT infrastructure for Arena Pantanal stadium















 


Allied Telesis, a network infrastructure/telecommunications company, has announced a partnership with Panasonic in the creation of the ICT infrastructure for the Arena Pantanal stadium, built for the 2014 World Cup.

When completed, the infrastructure designed and provided by Allied Telesis and Panasonic will cover telephony (IP and PABX), security CCTV (IP cameras), internet access, digital signage, access controls (RFID card readers and turnstiles) as well as additional functions such as sound systems.

The collaboration started in 2013, with the focus of the initial phase mainly on the Allied Telesis and Panasonic IP Surveillance and IP PABX solutions, as well as the design and planning of firewall specifications, and definitions of servers for the services and dimensions of the network for the entire arena solution.

The topology of the completed project comprises of two data centers located on either side of the stadium, each capable of independently supporting the entire traffic of the stadium at its peak. These data centers link over 20 operation rooms located throughout the stadium from which all operations can be integrated and controlled.

The partnership extends to training for staff on the installation, project management consultancy, remote support and on-site installation shadowing to ensure that knowledge and skills can be transferred to those who will operate the stadium on a day-to-day basis after handover.

Francesco Stramezzi, general manager - EMEA and CSA, Allied Telesis, commented: “The World Cup will be an important event for the region, because the eyes of the world will be upon them. This is not only an exciting and important project with which Allied Telesis is involved, but it will be a global opportunity for us to contribute to a worldwide stirring event, while showcasing the flexibility, reliability and environmental sustainability of our solutions.”
