Football stadium gains IP surveillance network

Network Defence : 06 January, 2009  (Application Story)
Network Defence installs infrastructure for digital IP surveillance network at Bolton Wanderers' football stadium
Football stadium gains IP surveillance network
Leading IT security specialist Network Defence has implemented a new IP CCTV camera network across Bolton Wanderers' Reebok Stadium to help ensure a safe and secure working environment 24/7.

Network Defence has installed 40 IP CCTV cameras into the Barclays Premier League club's current infrastructure enabling security and health & safety officials to gain visibility in parts of the ground that had previously been unreachable. This has enhanced levels of security and safety for fans and employees during match days. In addition it now monitors the stadium throughout the business week when it remains active due to the location of the De Vere Whites Hotel at the Reebok Stadium

Dave Atkinson, IT manager for Bolton Wanderers Football Club, said: "The new cameras not only capture any anti-social or dangerous behaviour but also act as a deterrent to those intending to behave in such a manner - this helps to increase levels of security in and around the stadium.

"With crowded areas being potentially a prime target for security threats it was imperative to put in place a more comprehensive solution that would give us a wider range of visibility across the club grounds. Since their installation the cameras have already proven their worth by capturing incidents, which have been invaluable in helping us resolve security issues.

"Network Defence have provided us with a cost-effective solution which gives us the flexibility and above all a robust level of security that we require. Prior to the CCTV roll out Network Defence installed the Cisco IP infrastructure that now powers the business communications."


Bolton Wanderers plans to roll out a total of 100 cameras. As well as hosting IP CCTV the Cisco IP infrastructure also carries an IP telephony service. Bolton Wanderers now plans to focus on energy conservation by integrating building management services into the network.
