NEC Corporation today announced its provision of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) infrastructure solutions supporting the modernization process of RIOgaleão - Tom Jobim International Airport in Rio de Janeiro, one of Brazil's busiest international airports. The contract for this project was signed in June 2015 between NEC and the Consórcio Construtor Galeão, composed of the Construtora Norberto Odebrecht and Montagens e Projetos Especiais S.A. (MPE) construction companies.
NEC's solutions are already being implemented in the construction of the South Pier of the airport, including the modernization of Terminal 2 and nearby parking facilities. Overall, NEC is overseeing the implementation of closed-circuit TV (CCTV), fire detection/alarm systems, access control, telephony, wireless Internet access and digital signage flight monitors.
"This is an interesting and complex project, in which we are responsible for a wide variety of information and communications technology systems that need to be fully integrated with existing solutions at the international airport," said Massato Takakuwa, government business director for NEC in Brazil. "NEC's solutions will be essential to ensuring the safety of passengers and their access to flight information, in addition to the quality of their communications via telephone and the Internet."
Due to the complexity of this project, and the need to flexibly handle a wide range of challenges, more than 200 professionals from NEC are engaged in its activities, including specialists in multiple IT and telecommunications systems.
"NEC regards its selection for this project as recognition of its experience and expertise in the integration of a diverse range of technologies. This project strongly reflects the company's objectives of offering end-to-end solutions that help generate social value through the modernization of important infrastructure, such as airports and shipping ports," explains Daniel Mirabile, president of NEC in Brazil.
