Our challenge was to provide a network versatile enough to serve a major European surfing event. The network would consist of five individual networks; each hosting broadband, voice communication, a judging system and distribution of live scoring to screens throughout the event site. The final requirement was a satellite link to allow a live broadcast of the event to be fed over the internet.
The site itself carried its own challenges. The main complex was occupied in the lead up to and during the event, so all cabling would need to be installed without disruption and out of hours. Additionally the network would be exposed to sand and salt air, high winds, rain and the occasional spot of sunshine.
