Eidgenössisches Schwing- und Älplerfest

“We needed a flexible solution for the Eidgenössisches Schwing- und Älplerfest.”

Stefano Maiolo, ESAF Organising Committee member


More diversity for the Eidgenössisches Schwing- und Älplerfest

The Eidgenössisches Schwing- und Älplerfest is the largest sports event in Switzerland. The technical requirements for covering a 90-hectare festival site and connecting different locations without any existing infrastructure are very wide-ranging.

The challenge: fast implementation, lower costs

The ESAF Organising Committee has to cover not only the entire festival site, but also six other locations in and around Burgdorf which need to be supplied with Internet and telephony connections. Internal and external communication also needs to be seamless throughout the event – all without any existing infrastructure.

The result: seamless communication

With Smart Business Connect (successor of Business Connect), the infrastructure can be adapted to current needs at any time, without any additional costs. The different sites are combined in a single network and use a common infrastructure for voice and data traffic. The Organising Committee therefore does not need to provide a telephone exchange system or cabling. This not only has a positive impact in terms of costs, but is also much quicker to install.
