Allied Telesis partners Panasonic to provide ICT Infrastructure for Mato Grosso Special Secretariat (SECOPA)

25th April 2014 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

Allied Telesis-logoBANGALORE, India – April 24, 2014:  Allied Telesis , a leading player in the deployment and provision of IP Triple Play networks and networking infrastructures space, has partnered with Panasonic in the creation of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) infrastructure for the Arena Pantanal stadium, built for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

The Arena Pantanal in Cuiabá, in the Brazilian state of Mato Grosso, will be
the venue for many of the 2014 World Cup soccer matches, which begins in
June. The stadium’s capacity is approximately 43,000 people and it has a
flexible structure to adapt it to any future requirements. Locally, the new
stadium is known as “O Verdão” (The Big Green), after the sustainable
approach used for its construction and maintenance.

When completed, the infrastructure that was designed and provided by Allied Telesis and Panasonic will include telephony (IP and PABX), security CCTV (IP cameras), Internet access, digital signage, access control (RFID card readers and turnstiles), as well as additional functions such as sound
systems, and will deliver a world-class “intelligent stadium” to the Mato
Grosso Special Secretariat (SECOPA).

Allied Telesis and Panasonic first began collaboration on the project
in 2013. The main focus of the initial phase was on
the Allied Telesis and Panasonic IP surveillance and IP PABX solutions. With
the strong Allied Telesis reputation for designing and delivering high
quality solutions, capable of successfully handling large volumes of
multimedia traffic, and having a great deal of experience in this field, the
partnership continued to develop. Allied Telesis solutions engineers were
chosen by Panasonic to collaborate and contribute to the design and planning of firewall specifications, definitions of servers for the services and
dimensions of the network, for the entire arena solution.

The international significance of the events that will take place in the
venue requires very high availability of all services, as even minimal
downtime during any match would not be acceptable. For this reason, Allied
Telesis and Panasonic devoted significant resources to the design and
engineering of the solution, and the successful integration of all parts of
the system.

The completed project includes two data centers, located on either side of
the stadium-each capable of independently supporting the entire traffic load
of the stadium at its peak. These data centers link more than twenty
operation rooms, located throughout the stadium, from which all operations
can be integrated and controlled. The Allied Telesis network has been
designed to be resilient and ensure full operation at all times, connecting
all equipment and controls.

The synergy of the partnership between Allied Telesis and Panasonic will
continue to offer benefits to the end user as the project moves through
completion and commissioning, to subsequent use during the tournament
itself. These benefits will include 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 at Allied Telesis said, ”The World Cup will be an important event for the region because the eyes of
the world will be upon it. This is not only an exciting and important
project for Allied Telesis, but it will also be a global opportunity for us
to showcase the flexibility, reliability, and environmental sustainability
of our solutions. We have been given an opportunity to collaborate with
partners who are world leaders in their fields, as a result of the
reputation and quality of our staff and products, as well as the efficiency
and effectiveness of our network solutions.”

Masahiro Shinada, Vice President at Panasonic do Brasil Ltda. commented,
“The partnership between Panasonic and Allied Telesis is founded on our
common experiences in this field. Allied Telesis solutions have high quality
and are capable of successfully handling large volumes of multimedia
traffic; and Panasonic contributes with paramount solutions for surveillance
and voice solutions.”
