Make Sure Customers Can Connect 24/7
Be prepared with the right infrastructure to help customers connect via social media. The London Olympics this past summer faced a huge change since the last Olympic games in Beijing because of the rise of social media, Internet usage and mobile devices. BT, the telecom provider for the London games, built from scratch a single data network and host services like telephony and cybersecurity in the cloud.
For fans and workers at the Olympics, BT hooked up a total of 80,000 connections, 16,500 phone lines and 14,000 cable TV outlets at 94 locations to ensure every Olympic event could be performed and watched uninterrupted.
