From the case study:

“To guarantee trouble-free operations, industrial-grade products were selected and installed, including 250 switches and network management software, 300 kilometers of fiber cable and 100 kilometers of copper cable.”

“Belden and RW-electronic’s recommended approach enabled a flexible infrastructure to support future growth. This set-up ensures the stadium will be able to easily accommodate more or less turnstiles, TVs or mobile readers in the future – something that the previous technology couldn´t do.”
