Customized Advantis NG control consoles for nine 24/7 telecommunications control rooms NOC, SOC and crisis room
The project for Saudi Telecom Company began to be specified in 2017 by international consultants, who contacted GESAB due to its recognition in the control room market as a leading company in ergonomic furniture design. It was essential for the work to comply with the ISO 11064 standard at the same time that a spectacular space had to be designed according to the large dimensions of each room and its large number of operators.
In order to achieve a brilliant final result, the relationships between the different companies involved have been very close. Thus, during the progress of the civil works of the UNOC building, STC and its collaborators were in direct contact with the MEGATECH Systems Integrator who, together with GESAB, managed the communications and project corrections.
For GESAB, the challenge that Saudi Telecom Company posed in its needs was very big, since it required technical furniture for nine monitoring rooms with a total of 490 24/7 workstations, among which were NOC, SOC and rooms crisis where different telecom services are dispatched. In addition, the design had to allow to give correct spaces to its clients since the NOC centers would also be used by operators of other telecommunications companies. Therefore, it was necessary to provide a correct solution in which all operators had a suitable workspace.
For this, the 100% customized Advantis NG model was chosen and adapted to their needs, a control console fully prepared for 24/7 critical environments and which also facilitates the management of all types of wiring.
Several visits to Riyadh were needed, including in-depth meetings and workshops in which a 100% tailor-made solution was designed with the end customer.
One of the biggest challenges to achieve excellence in this project has been meeting very restrictive deadlines imposed by STC, while maintaining quality processes and material reviews, complying at all times with ISO 9001 regulations, which are necessary as maker.
The final result is a work tool created to measure for Saudi Telecom Company and that will be usable in the future in the event of the expansion of the service given its great capacity. In addition, it also turns out to be a sales tool for your services and a reflection of the company’s corporate image.
As a curious fact there is a curved console 28 meters long on the upper floor of the NOC.
At GESAB we can only be proud of having been part of this great project, thanking Saudi Telecom Company, and especially the team that has participated in the project together with the systems integrator, consultants, architects, installers and other technicians who formed an exceptional group, achieving that, despite being in difficult times, it was possible to successfully complete this large-scale project.
