Television images of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil had a long way to travel to reach Swiss living rooms and public viewing screens. To ensure perfect signal transmission in HD quality, we installed two 1Gbit connections from Rio de Janeiro to Zurich on behalf of SRG SSR and operated them during the World Cup. Part of the line capacity was also used for SRG's temporary workplaces (max. 40) in Brazil during that time.
A number of international suppliers and Swisscom internal departments were involved in this project. We assumed the role of general contractor and provided the SRG with a Single Point of Contact (SPOC) service.
