A cooling system installed for the racks is expected to extend the life of the equipment and improve its performance. The NetBotz environmental control system, which was also installed in the computer center, has temperature and humidity sensors for the equipment and the cameras.

To unify the already existing equipment with the new system, Key Digital added new wiring to interconnect the center's equipment. Additionally, the equipment is now connected to redundant sources of power.

The project was part of ASI's e-government initiative to coordinate the computer infrastructure and information systems of all sectors in the Buenos Aires municipality and to also provide citizens with improved access to the government's information services.
