ENGIE Services - DESA - Awards - BICSI 2016 ICT Infrastructure Installation Award
We won the ICT Infrastructure Installation of the year category at the annual Building Industry Consulting Service International awards for our work on the MCG Smart Stadium upgrade. We also received a Certificate of Commendation at the annual NECA Excellence Awards for the quality achieved on this technical installation.
We worked closely with the MCC to develop the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground into one of the world’s most technically advanced stadiums, involving the installation of copper and fibre optic infrastructure and 900 wireless access points, creating the highest density private Wi-Fi network in the world. The project also included an Internet Protocol Television Solution to 300 screens around the ground and the installation of LED ribbon screens around the boundary line.
“The vision of the MCC was to future-proof the “G”, where a capacity crowd would be able to access live replays, live stats and the best quality internet access on a smartphone or tablet.
