Challenges

  • The Prefeitura de Fortaleza has been modernizing its infrastructure to provide better and more efficient service to citizens. After investing in over 300 kilometers of fiber optic cables, the city wanted to upgrade its data network.
  • The municipality needed a solution that offered swift implementation across its many departments: administration, education, healthcare, security, etc.
  • It also had to be robust and reliable enough to power new Internet of Things (IoT) devices, including CCTV cameras to improve public safety.
  • Affordability was a key requirement since Brazilian government agencies are required to conduct an eAuction to select contractors.
