Success Story

European Football Championship - MICROSENS comes into play!

In June 2012, Poland and Ukraine will host the 14th European Football Championship. The tournament matches will be staged in four Polish cities: Warsaw, Gdańsk, Poznań and Wrocław. The host cities have decided to construct new or modernize existing stadiums for European Football Championship.

In Wrocław, the Municipal Stadium was constructed, a modern, multifunction sport and recreation facility with over 42,000 seats. The stadium offers multiple amenities to visitors, including roofed stands, prestige VIP business seats, VIP boxes, the exclusive Business Club and a press center. The Stadium will also host a modern conference center and have office spaces to let.

The design and construction of the stadium were carried out in a relatively short time, emphasizing the modern form of the facility and using state-of-the-art technologies to ensure comfort and security to visitors. 

One of the key elements of the stadium structure is a modern monitoring and access control system. Its purpose is to restrict access of unauthorized persons to the facility and technical rooms of the stadium during mass events. The system is based on 365 IP cameras integrated with access control equipment. A large part of the infrastructure is based on the MICROSENS Industrial Switches.

Industrial network components must meet stringent requirements as to technical parameters, functionality, high efficiency and ranges, effective protection against environmental impacts, good insulation and high voltage protection as well as resistance to electromagnetic interference.

The MICROSENS Industrial Switches ensure high speed of data transmission and large throughput required for installations of such type. The ring mechanism designed by MICROSENS and installed in the devices allows setting up an error-resistant ring topology network and ensures the highest availability thanks to automatic reconfiguration in case of error. Another feature of the devices is the modular construction of fiber ports, that greatly increases their flexibility. The devices have been equipped with next generation management features. 

Following the construction of the new stadium, Wrocław rose to the level of an important location on the map of Poland and Europe in terms of sport, culture and entertainment potential. Besides sport events, the facility can be used to host music events, performances, shows and exhibitions while ensuring the highest level of service to its visitors.
