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