The Wimbledon Tennis Championships has overhauled its network to provide improved services for players, the media and spectators.
These include a ticket monitoring service enabling seats to be resold when spectators leave, and an IPTV stream to be screened at points throughout the ground to ensure everyone sees as much court action as possible.
In addition internet access for 1,000 users and the Wimbledon Information and TV commentators systems also depend on the network.
Jeff Lucas, IT Director at the All England Lawn Tennis Club, said, “For two weeks of the year response times are measured in seconds not minutes. With so many critical systems running over the network, availability is critical.”
