Requirements
The interconnected era presents businesses with amazing opportunities and complex challenges. In order to prove its position of interconnection leader that accelerates business performance and fosters endless opportunities for the clients, Equinix team in Singapore decided to renovate its network operations center and expand its possibilities.

As the existing video wall system was built almost 7 years ago, it needed certain actualization to remain on the cutting edge of technology. Taking into account that NOC was the focal point for network troubleshooting, operation monitoring and coordination with affiliated networks, the essential need of the client was to build a fully centralized system with complete flexibility of layout design and multiple types of content without the necessity to use third party layout software.

Solution
With a vision to update the whole video wall system Acesian Systems engineers offered to use Datapath controller together with Polywall PRO software for complete system control. Easily deployed and configured, Polywall turned to be an optimal solution to address all above mentioned client requirements. The use of 3rd party layout software is now fully eliminated, as the existing solution provides centralized control over layout and choice of content. Most importantly Polywall PRO allows creating presets for different operation scenarios and visitor presentations which is a fundamental point for the client. Moreover the solution is smoothly integrated with the client’s internal web portal and Channel News Asia from a Setup Box.
