Event ICT

Behind the scenes of the Tour de Suisse 2023

By Cornelia Fauver

A look at the work of Swisscom Broadcast's Event ICT team at the Tour de Suisse. Switzerland's most important cycling race covers more than 1,000 kilometres through all parts of the country - and Broadcast is right up close.

Who hasn't seen the images of the riders fighting for the mountain prize, tacticking in the slipstream, attacking, having to admit defeat on the home straight - the emotions, the beads of sweat, the glowing calves.

The fact that we are all familiar with these images is thanks to our experts: From preparation to implementation, they were on duty at nine locations throughout Switzerland, responding immediately to all challenges and ensuring first-class connectivity for the women's and men's races. Our team ensured the smooth transmission of live images and data and played a key role in making the Tour de Suisse an unforgettable experience for participants and spectators alike.

«It is perfect how the co-operation with Swisscom Broadcast works and we are very happy to have this partnership.»

Oliver Senn, Event Director Tour de Suisse

The Tour de Suisse is therefore not only the biggest cycling race in Switzerland, but also an important project for the Event ICT team at Swisscom Broadcast. We look forward to being involved in future events with this kind of appeal.
