Seminar 6: London 2012 publication launch seminar - ICT Solutions to cover major events, stadiums and high density coverage

Date: Tuesday 26th February 2013            Time: 15:45 to 18:00 (15:15 for networking)

The London Olympics and Paralympics demonstrated the strength of the UK Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and technology supply chain sectors to deliver the most digitally enabled Games ever, providing real time information, data, pictures, texts, phone calls and video required for the Games.

These were the first ever social media Games – with www.London2012.com  becoming one of the most visited sports website in the world with 431 million visits, 109 million unique users, 15 million app downloads and 4.73 billion page views. An estimated 4 billion spectators viewed the Games worldwide.

At peak times, the network was carrying 60 gigabits of information a second, between 80 000 connections across 94 locations (four times the network capacity of the Beijing Games), setting the bar for future Olympics and other major global sporting events. This seminar will explore lessons learned from the Games and examine how these can be taken forward to future major projects.
