Whether at a ticket checkpoint or on an assembly line, it's hard to keep your distance when space is tight. A Corona case in the workforce can threaten colleagues with time in quarantine. This runs the risk of bringing production to a standstill. Production and logistics fear the uncontrolled spread of the virus after a positive case. The sports, event and travel industries also want to quickly identify and break infection chains.
T-Systems and its partner Kinexon have developed a warning technology for companies. This enables companies to detect infection chains at an early stage. The new offering is called “Enterprise Protection System (EPS)”. The first tests were conducted in ice hockey. Clubs in the PENNY DEL have already successfully tested the system. It was used last week in the game between the “Berlin Eisbären” and the “Wolfsburg Grizzlies”. This week, another test is scheduled for the game against the “Augsburg Panthers”.
Corona will continue to challenge us in all areas of life and we will have to live with the virus. It is all the more important that we think in terms of concrete solutions as well as work with concepts to ensure that, in perspective, ice hockey sports can once again take place in front of spectators. The Enterprise Protection System can be another important building block in this process. It is another pillar of the concrete efforts we are making on the part of the league as well as in community with our 14 clubs in the area of hygiene as well as contact tracking.
