Reading Football Club has installed new security appliances, in preparation for the roll out of VoIP, together with a contactless and cashless ticketing and hospitality system.

The club is investing in the new technology to replace an existing Cisco PIX appliance that was coming to the end of its life. The new system will better meet the club’s needs after its recent expansion.

The football club has two new sites, a new training ground and fulfilment warehouse for its branded merchandise sales.

In preparation for the VoIP and ticketing systems, Reading has installed three appliances from SonicWALL at each of the sites, connected with virtual private network (VPN) tunnels.

As well as standard VPN and firewall features, the SonicWALL TZ 180, TZ 190 and PRO 2040 appliances provide an expanded level of functionality.

They provide anti-virus, intrusion detection and prevention and email security scanning capabilities. IPSec VPNs between each location, remote workers and outside suppliers ensure that all traffic remains secure.

The contactless system will be trialled by 2,000 of Reading FCs fans at its next home game against Birmingham on 22 March.
