SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Feb. 23 (EUROPE PRESS) –
The Cabildo de Tenerife will conclude the work on the third phase of the Insular Telecommunications Ring in a few weeks, according to the first vice president and insular councilor for Innovation, Enrique Arriaga, after verifying the wiring work that is being carried out this week in the municipality of La Laguna.
At this point in the project, Arriaga indicated, “optic fiber has been taken to the 31 municipalities of the Island through radials located on the island roads from the TF-1 and TF-5. In this way, in the short term Singular and vital buildings, such as town halls, citizen service centers or fire stations, among others, will see their communication systems reinforced and their bandwidth and security will increase”.
The councilor highlighted the importance of the Insular Telecommunications Ring that is being deployed and that in a few months will begin its fourth phase of execution: “The Insular Ring will be closely linked to the Self-service network that the Cabildo already has. The objective is to optimize the necessary fiber optic deployments, as well as allowing the correct communication of these points of interest with the D-ALiX datacenter. The points of interest that will be connected to the Ring are a total of 171 points distributed throughout the insular orography”.
“The Insular Ring establishes the basic infrastructure for the development of technological projects of the Cabildo that will allow, for example, to increase security on the island in matters such as the prediction and monitoring of forest fires, natural disasters or, for example, volcanic eruptions,” Arriaga pointed out. .
The insular director of innovation, Aránzazu Artal, explained that in this phase 128 kilometers of cable with 96 optical fibers have been installed, of which 81.5 are located inside microducts installed in a newly executed trench carried out by means of a microtrenching truck on the shoulders Of the island roads, the rest have been installed in existing canalizations. Surveillance cameras, information panels and signaling gates have also been installed.
