Monterrey Stadium Fixed-port network and consultancy
Monterrey Football Club
Fixed-Port Network in the new “Rayados” Monterrey-Mexico stadium. The project began with an audiovisual consultancy to define all the audiovisual ducting all over the arena, as well as the definition and installation of the fixed-port network locations for the new stadium.
A fixed-port network is a network of various types of cabling and junction boxes that extends throughout the stadiums and enables television channels that broadcast the matches to automatically connect their cameras directly to the different points that make up the network. This means television channels that have the broadcasting rights don’t have to lay out cabling every time they travel to broadcast a match or event, as was the case before, thus saving time and costs while allowing the stadiums to monetise their infrastructure. The stadiums are responsible for the regularly maintenance of this infrastructure of connection points to ensure optimal quality.
TSA’s experience in football stadiums has made it possible to transfer all its know-how to this case and devise a business plan proposalthat allows the stadium ownership to operate the installed infrastructure.
The project forms part of thelarger construction project for the new headquarters of the Monterrey Football Club; the BBVA Bancomer stadium, inaugurated in 2015, which was built and designed with elements that promote sustainable conservation and blends in perfectly with the natural surroundings.
TSA’s contribution consisted of two parts: he first part in which a consultancy was carried out to define the optimal location of all the audio and video channels that would provide signals to the whole stadium. This phase also defined the location, structure and scope of the stadium’s fixed-port network. The second phase consisted of the supply, installation and commissioning of the stadium’s fixed-port system as defined in the first phase,which is made up of more than 260 connections through fibre-optic camera, Triax, HD Video, Audio and AC Power cables distributed in more than 35 boxes throughout the stadium.
