DB Systems’ ability to provide temporary internet services anywhere in the world has been rewarded after winning a major contract at Sibos 2012, due to be held at INTEX Osaka, in Japan, from 29th October to 2nd November.
The IT & AV rental company’s Event Networks & Telecoms division will design, install and manage a temporary internet and telecommunications infrastructure.
Sibos is the world’s premier financial services event and the show’s organiser, SWIFT, selected DB as it needed a reliable company with the expertise to ensure the successful delivery of such a major international project.
David Bulley, DB Systems’ Managing Director said: “We have already begun planning for the event, even though it’s 15 months away. We’ve carried out two site visits, and we’ll be undertaking a third soon.
“The first part of our work includes the establishment of a stable core fibre optic network. Once the fibre is in, we are bringing our mobile Network Operating Centre (NOC), which will supply all connectivity across the event.
“Being a banking event, one of the most crucial aspects of this contract will be to ensure security. As such, we are providing two connections to the site from different locations and different backbone suppliers. Each one of these connections will be able to handle 1GB bursts of information.”
The network will be able to run VoIP telephones and faxes, as well as general internet connectivity of between 1MB and 10MB. The network will also take into account large upload capacities, as well as the download speeds for the mainstream users.
David Bulley added: “This is undoubtedly a large project,
but we successfully delivered a very similar project for the 2010
Farnborough Air Show, I’m confident that our specialist Event
Networks division will deliver this contract on time and to budget
and leave a lasting legacy at INTEX for users in the
