DAEL Group, an international electrotechnical and telecommunications company, has selected IaaS provider Worldstream to deliver data center services from its flagship data center in the Rotterdam/The Hague area in the Netherlands. DAEL will use Worldstream’s data center for storage and backups of security services, more specifically the storage and backup of thousands of AI-based smart camera surveillance solutions throughout the Netherlands.
DAEL counts more than 300 employees working in several divisions from various country offices in Europe. DAEL’s newest division is named DAEL Connectivity and delivers custom made connectivity solutions. As part of the DAEL Group it can offer a complete, scalable and integrated portfolio of services which includes high speed point-to-point connections, private LTE, mesh networks as well as all different kind of streaming solutions used for sport-broadcasting and events.
At Worldstream’s data center location in the Netherlands, in Naaldwijk, DAEL Connectivity installed satellite dishes in a 60-meter high mast, while a dedicated point-to-point 10 Gigabit radio link connects the facility with DAEL’s headquarters in the same ‘Westland’ region in the Netherlands, at about 6KM distance. Through this ultra-low latency radio transmission, DAEL is now able to safely store video data of its AI-based smart camera surveillance service as well as various types of other data for its clients and significantly expand the company’s backup capabilities. The company intends to gradually move an increasing volume of data storage to its server racks in the Worldstream data center.

AI-based Smart Camera Surveillance
For thousands of camera surveillance solutions located throughout the Netherlands, DAEL Connectivity provides end-to-end (wireless) AI-based smart camera surveillance. Until now, DAEL has stored all smart camera surveillance data including backups in its in-house operated server room. To further enhance data security while adding scalability for camera surveillance management and data storage, DAEL Connectivity has selected Worldstream’s flagship data center in Naaldwijk, the Netherlands and established a 10 Gigabit radio link which connects the data center through a point-to-point telecommunications connection with DAEL’s headquarters.
“It’s great to have this enterprise-class data center of Worldstream nearby, at a distance of just 6 kilometers, but we could have selected data centers in Amsterdam, Rotterdam or Delft as well if the other data center services propositions would have been better,” said Jeroen van Leeuwen, Managing Director of DAEL Group. “Worldstream provides us with a highly customized solution through which we can flexibly meet the managed hosted camera surveillance requirements of our clients. We are currently connecting new smart camera surveillance solutions across the Netherlands at a speed of hundreds of camera surveillance solutions per year. The Worldstream flagship data center and their strategic plans to add new high-capacity facilities definitely add to our further growth. It safeguards our ability to safely store high volumes of data for our expanding operations.”

Worldstream Elastic Network (WEN)
“Many people don’t know the power of point-to-point radio transmission. If executed right, it actually provides ultra-low latency connections, even better than optical fiber and also at relatively long distances,” added Mr. Van Leeuwen. “Worldstream and DAEL customers in the Westland area in the Netherlands also benefit from this 60-meter high mast with radio transmission-based connectivity. It provides them the ability to have their premises easily be connected with the Worldstream data center.”
The satellite dishes installed in the mast by DAEL Connectivity, right next to the Worldstream data center, allow other organizations in the region, from SMBs to enterprises, to deploy dedicated 10 Gigabit radio links between the data center and their premises. It opens up new opportunities for these organizations in the ‘Westland’ and Rotterdam/The Hague area, as they will get easy access to Worldstream’s highly secured and compliant data center environment, for the outsourcing of IT infrastructures or setting up backup data center locations.
“Deploying fiber-optic cables underground can be quite expensive, time-consuming and sometimes impossible,” said Dirk Vromans, CTO and Co-Founder of Worldstream. “DAEL’s ultra-low latency connectivity option through the air gives organizations in the Westland area great new options. Especially as we’ve just launched Worldstream Elastic Network, a software-defined network with extensive IT infrastructure functionality built on top of our 10Tbit/s global backbone and available from our flagship data center.”
“This Worldstream Elastic Network provides SMBs with easy and low-cost access to highly flexible and enterprise level IT features, such as bare metal servers, hypervisors, VMs, firewalls, storage, private cloud, you name it, as well as seamless access to multiple top cloud providers,” added Mr. Vromans. “I think this partnership between Worldstream and DAEL opens up immense opportunities for companies in the region and beyond, removing the barriers impeding digital transformation objectives and hybrid cloud adoption. Not at least because DAEL Connectivity is able to extend their radio transmission reach throughout the Netherlands by the use of their fixed and mobile radio mast solutions.
