Municipality of Giardini Naxos

Integrated Network (connectability, security and video surveillance)


A Public Administration: the Municipality of Giardini Naxos (MESSINA), a renowned town adjacent to Taormina.



The Municipality of Giardini Naxos requested a complete solution system that could satisfy connectivity, security, IP telephony and video surveillance. An integrated all-inclusive network.
All Public Administrations, in fact, are called to follow some guidelines regarding unified communications, territorial monitoring and technological advances that must however be carried out within well-defined budgets. The choice of the right partner is therefore fundamental.



The integrated network that we at implemented has allowed the Municipality of Giardini Naxos to break down the digital divide among the citizens who have finally been able to enjoy an Internet connection in every corner of the city. With the “Naxos Wi-fi area”, in fact, the Wi-Fi internet coverage was extended to even the most distant areas from the center. A project of real e-inclusion created thanks to the compromise between the ability of the administration to interpret the new needs of citizens and the consolidated experience of In particular, the project implemented for the city administration includes:

Internet and intranet in public places
We have connected the most important places in the city to the network: the Town Hall (the network’s star center), 5 branch offices, 6 schools, the museum, the library and the city cemetery. These places have finally been able to enjoy internet, intranet and internal and external VoIP connectivity. A single network but several technologies. In fact, we used 15 ISDN and PSTN lines, 1 SHDSL connection and 12 ADSL connections. The protection of the network was guaranteed by clustered firewall systems implemented at headquarters.

The video surveillance system
The project was also enriched by the installation of an IP video surveillance system, which today allows the Municipality to monitor the North and South accesses of the city and several critical points near the rivers and streams of the territory, subject to becoming illegal micro-landfills. Through cameras with high sensitivity and definition, active day and night, and wireless connections, the customer can view images remotely, even through mobile devices.
