Cisco to connect up Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games

Cisco will enable data, voice, video and device connectivity

Cisco has been named the official network infrastructure supporter for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, and will be responsible for enabling the connection of data, voice, video and devices throughout games locations.

The network will consist of 2,300 IP phones, 441 switches, 378 access points, 16 routers, 15 digital media players, 14 ace load balancers and eight firewalls. Phil Smith, CEO Cisco UK, said that Glasgow 2014 is the perfect stage to showcase its 'Internet of Everything' approach to connecting people, process, data and things.

"It is crucial in a high-performance and fast-paced Games environment that information flow is seamless, and we are delighted to have a company of Cisco's calibre on board to keep Glasgow 2014 connected as we focus on the delivery of the largest multi-sport Games Scotland has ever seen," said Glasgow 2014 Chief Executive David Grevemberg.

The Games will consist of 11 days of sport running from 23 July through 3 August 2014. They will feature 15,000 volunteers, 1,000 staff and 6,500 athletes from 71 nations.

Cisco was the official network equipment provider for last year's London Olympic Games, where it constructed the world's largest high-density WiFi network, consisting of nearly 1,000 access points across nine Olympic venues.
