March 2015, Manila – Following its selection as the main subcontractor for the ‘Network Rehabilitation’ at the 3rd terminal of Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) by lead contractor, Japan’s Takenaka Group, Imaginet International Inc. is pleased to announce the conclusion of its contract of works (CWA) for the project.
The requested works were extended from refurbishment of the fiber optic network and upgrading of the CISCO Core and Edge switches, to include implementation of a CISCO High Availability Firewall solution, a CISCO Network Management system, replacement of four 30K APC Schneider UPS’s and the installation and commissioning of over 400 Samsung passenger flight information display screens (FIDS).
The refurbishment process was cemented when the Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC) and the Japanese main contractor, Takenaka Corp., signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on Monday 12/03/2012 in Tokyo, Japan. The handover of the contracted works occurred in July 2014 after the successful completion of full testing.
Imaginet’s Chief Executive Officer, Blair Duncan stated:
“Imaginet’s involvement in this long running project has required a high degree of management flexibility as well as technical expertise given that the start point was not fixed due to the complexity of the negotiations between the key parties and the relatively short installation period. I am delighted to report that the project was completed on time, on budget and above the requested technical specification and we are very pleased to have been involved in this prestigious project to improve the country’s infrastructure.
This is particularly significant given Imaginet’s strategic focus on Aviation & Airports where its partnerships with industry specialists and leaders such as APC, CISCO, IBM, Time & Frequency Solutions and Electrodata is driving its increasing presence in this dynamic growth segment of the Transport Infrastructure Development sector.”
