The fifa combined it t communications requirements l.jpg
The FIFA combined IT&T communications requirements for the World Cup 2010

  • The communications requirement at the IBC and earmarked Stadiums for the FIFA 2010 World Cup matches can be broken up into (2) two groups:

    • Basic telecommunications infrastructure (WAN), and

    • Venue distribution and access systems (LAN).

  • Strict rules apply to how the services should be provided, e.g.

    • 99.99% availability

    • End-to-end service and performance management

    • Dual homing

  • Communications requirement at an Earmarked stadium and the IBC only differ in scale

Conformance testing and interoperability c i challenges l.jpg
Conformance testing and interoperability (C&I) challenges for the World Cup 2010

  • Statement of Compliance(SOC) with standards

    • Always fully comply on a standalone equipment basis

  • Multi-vendor environment

    • Interoperability takes time and effort and becomes costly and delays the end-to-end services and performance testing procedures


Universal services provisioning infrastructure l.jpg

Provisioning for the required video feeds are made by the dedicated NG-SDH and WDM infrastructure

Any other basic communications service requirement, from Analogue telephony to High speed wireless LAN connectivity, is provided for by Telkom’s IP based NGN network.

Conformance testing and interoperability (C&I) challenges for the World Cup 2010

  • Interoperability challenges between IMAX (Multi-Service Access Node) and the Softswitch in a multi-domain environment

  • Network operator is expected to resolve the interoperability and systems integration issues/problems

  • A global C&I program which is acceptable to the entire ICT industry is required

Conformance testing and interoperability (C&I) challenges for the World Cup 2010

  • Minimised C&I issues/concerns by adopting a single vendor strategy for national/regional optical fibre transport technology platform

  • Not the most optimum solution from a Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) CAPEX+OPEX+ all other hidden costs perspective
