has hosted, the country has shown its ability to successfully implement cutting-edge
information and telecommunications technologies. Paris 2012’s priority will be
to use that experience to offer reliable, effective and user-friendly technological
services, whilst making use of the best technologies that exist in 2012.
A Highly Effective Telecommunications Network
The Ile-de-France Region has one of the most comprehensive telecommunications
networks in Europe. France’s three main telephone operators currently offer enough
capacity to connect every of the Olympic venue and handle the related audio, data
and video demands, to the highest standard. All existing venues are already linked
up to the network. The new and temporary venues will be located near existing
cable networks, thus limiting the costs to be borne by the OCOG.
Optimal Mobile Coverage
All of the Olympic venues are already covered by each of France’s three mobile
telephone operators. As for UMTS coverage, it will be fully deployed by 2012.
In addition, operators will be able to provide for any increase in capacity required
for the Games.
Secure and Sound Technologies
All Olympic telecommunications will enjoy the utmost quality, reliability, service
continuity and security, thanks to the connections and webbing of the current
networks, one-point surveillance of the entire telecommunications system and physical
securing of all infrastructures.
