Atos is responsible for the testing of all the IT systems of the Olympic Games under every scenario. In this video, Peter Hamilton, the Integration Manager for London 2012 explains how testing at the Games is critical to success.
In the run up to the Opening Ceremony of London 2012 more than 200,000 hours of meticulous testing of the Games IT, communications, media, sports and technology security systems took place. Atos designed processes and systems that were rigorously tested and cross-referenced with every sports body and association to ensure they complied with the latest rules and regulations.
The technology for each event was built in individual test pods at the Testing Lab. It was then transferred out to the venues for the test events series and then returned to the Testing Labs for further monitoring. Finally, the technology was moved in venue a few weeks before the Games began. Finally, Atos completed its final technical rehearsal to ensure that Atos was prepared for any situation that could arise during London 2012.
