Technological networks and systems

Advanced technology and energy saving are furthered by the installation of innovative networks and equipment that guarantee the best conditions for their access and use by companies located at the Park.
A centralized three-way cogeneration plant, photovoltaic installations and broadband optical-fiber cabling all around the Park’s perimeter make it possible to meet all energy and data-transmission needs, guaranteeing optimal use and savings on operating costs.
Security – a must for companies that operate at the Technology Park – is provided by state-of-the-art active and passive defense systems.

Tecnopolo Tiburtino companies can benefit from the following structures and services:

– Photovoltaic plants and L.E.D.
– Services tunnel
– Broadband
– Security system
– MEGALAB network

Photovoltaic plants and L.E.D.
A photovoltaic platform roof is already implemented within the Tecnopolo Tiburtino, providing energy and lighting for Tecnopolo offices. The lighting L.E.D. (Light Emitting Diode) is also implemented so producing a sensible consumptions decrease and energy costs reduction, together with an improvement of visual comfort.

Services tunnel
The services tunnel, containing water and electric mains and the broadband optical-fiber cables, runs all around the Park’s perimeter. It serves all high-tech utilities needs, enabling optimal services organisation, easy inspection and control, prompt maintenance, workplace safety and less pollution.

Cabling
Optical-fiber cabling runs all through the Park, both horizontally (from the mains to the individual buildings) and vertically (from the buildings’ entrances to the individual offices). Thanks to the use of optical fiber, the broadband networks can transport huge quantities of data, guaranteeing reliability, much faster speed than traditional infrastructure, and better performance. The Park’s star-type data transmission system is characterized by the presence of a central node that receives and relays all communications from user nodes. The internal network is managed directly by the Park Company.

Security system
The Tiburtino Technology Park’s security system is designed as an integrated system that to be completed step by step as the buildings are erected. The internal roads are constantly monitored by security cameras linked to the Star Center and by a remote service. A closed-circuit TV system monitor the road entrances and the internal areas.

MEGALAB network (Metropolitan E-Government Application LABoratory)
Megalab is a project supported by the Latium Region aiming at creating a super-calculus infrastructure linking the most important scientific regional organizations (ESA/ESRIN-ESA Centre for Earth Observation, I.N.F.N.- National Institute Nuclear Phisics, C.N.R./Research National Council-Tor Vergata Univeristy), so as to share resources, data and know-how. Through Megalab, each organisation could connect and cooperate with research centers, Universities and hospitals. Tecnopolo Tiburtino has been identified as one of the main network point of reference.

Other services

Further services are ready for use in the area, or are now being created.
