ASTRI is an Italian flagship project whose first goal is the realization of an end-to-end telescope prototype, named
ASTRI SST-2M, for the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA). The prototype will be installed in Italy during Fall 2014. A
second goal will be the realization of the ASTRI/CTA mini-array which will be composed of seven SST-2M telescopes
placed at the CTA Southern Site. The Information and Communication Technology (ICT) equipment necessary to drive
the infrastructure for the ASTRI SST-2M prototype is being designed as a complete and stand-alone computer center.
The design goal is to obtain basic ICT equipment that might be scaled, with a low level of redundancy, for the
ASTRI/CTA mini-array, taking into account the necessary control, monitor and alarm system requirements. The ICT
equipment envisaged at the Serra La Nave observing station in Italy, where the ASTRI SST-2M telescope prototype will
operate, includes computers, servers and workstations, network devices, an uninterruptable power supply system, and air
conditioning systems. Suitable hardware and software tools will allow the parameters related to the behavior and health
of each item of equipment to be controlled and monitored. This paper presents the proposed architecture and technical
solutions that integrate the ICT equipment in the framework of the Observatory Control System package of the
ASTRI/CTA Mini- Array Software System, MASS, to allow their local and remote control and monitoring. An end-toend
test case using an Internet Protocol thermometer is reported in detail.
