Coral Springs, FL, July 21, 2013 – A new awards program from the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (NCS4), sponsored by SDM, recognizes excellence in system integration at sporting venues. There were five entries for the 2013 award.

Integrators who execute security projects in sporting venues now have an award for the work they do — the Golden Eagle Award. The award, sponsored by SDM, is from the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security.

The University of Southern Mississippi is home to the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security and the Golden Eagles. This new award recognizes excellence in the safety and security aspects of sports venues by their designers, builders and installers. The award honors the best project among all nominees each year. The naming of the Golden Eagle Award also recognizes the commitment and work that the University of Southern Mississippi does in contributing to safety and security in the global spectator sports industry.

“We’re truly honored to be the inaugural winner of this award. The NCS4 has become the most important organization to address safety and security at sporting events. Knowing that our services are making a difference in the industry makes the entire team at ISS 24/7 extremely proud. We share this award with all of our clients, as they are the ones whose feedback has allowed us to continually enhance and develop the products to the level they are today,” expressed Scott Meyers, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, ISS 24/7.

ISS 24/7’s case study focused on the use of its Incident Management System in Cowboys Stadium located in Arlington, Texas. With three million square feet, a capacity of nearly 100,000 people and hosting marquee events such as Super Bowl XLV, the NBA All Star Game, and NCAA Final Four, Cowboys Stadium is a busy and complex operating environment. To support events, Cowboys Stadium utilizes two command centers to coordinate the communications and activities of more than 6,000 stadium personnel.

Since implementing the ISS 24/7 Text Messaging platform and the Incident Management System, Cowboys Stadium management reports that they are achieving the operations’ effectiveness and efficiency that they desired. Cowboys Stadium is utilizing the Incident Management System for events and on a daily basis by logging all building activities and digitally managing incident reports and building inspections. Currently the stadium is expanding its wireless communications networks and expects to deploy the ISS 24/7 handheld units to more than 400 event-day personnel.
