London: Wired and Willing

The Olympic Games. When you hear those three words, visions of Greek Athletes competing in large arenas dance through your head.

You probably don’t even think of what goes on behind the scenes in the modern Olympics or what allows them to display all those nice statistics upon the screens of the worlds viewers. London is finding that out now.

“IT engineers are fine tuning the equipment that will be used to transmit scores, let athletes send e-mail and transmit high-definition video of the Games.

The Olympic Games are set to kick off on July 27 next year and will be followed by the Paralympic Games. Test athletic events are already under way, which are being used to evaluate the resiliency of high-speed data networks costing millions of pounds.

In a skyscraper in London’s Canary Wharf financial district, Olympic organizers opened a Technology Operations Center (TOC) last month and that act as mission control for monitoring the health of Olympic IT systems.

The TOC’s location is a soft secret, and organizers did not want its exact location to be published for security reasons. More than 400 people can work in the TOC, monitoring athletic events and managing a trouble-ticketing system for when an IT problem crops up. During the games, the TOC will monitor 94 competition and non-competition venues.”
