We continue our weekly look at a selected white paper from NewBay Connect, with Riedel. The NewBay Connect website, launched this summer, offers registered members a comprehensive online depository of white papers, analyst reports, case studies, briefings, tutorials and more.
In one of a number of featured papers on the site, Riedel Communications, provider of realtime video, audio, data, and communications networks, details how it supplied all radio communications equipment and services for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, running from 23 July to 3 August in Glasgow, Scotland.
“The ability to communicate effectively at Games venues and throughout Glasgow and other parts of Scotland is an essential element to delivering a successful Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games,” said Brian Nourse, chief information officer, Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. “We have benefited from Riedel’s extensive experience of being involved in many previous major sporting events to ensure a robust communications solution is delivered for our event.”
Riedel Communications has designed a radio communications solution for use across Glasgow and at the 14 venues hosting 17 different sporting competitions. The company is providing all radio handsets and radio communication accessories — including more than 6,000 radios — used in the lead-up to and during the Games, along with a terrestrial trunked radio (TETRA) digital network and a Motorola MOTOTRBO digital radio repeater system. Both the TETRA and MOTOTRBO systems are dedicated, fully monitored, and serviced solutions.
