The story of our work at Glasgow 2018 begins more than four years ago when NVT Group won the contract to become the Official Technology Services Integrator for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. NVT Group’s successful engagement at Glasgow 2014 – which achieved a 100% uptime and zero failures performance record – can be characterised by core strengths which remain integral to the IT firm’s sport engagements today.

NVT Group says: “Our success at both Glasgow 2014 and Glasgow 2018 was achieved through our can-do culture combined with the deployment of our innovative technology solutions, such as Aiir Networks Intelligent Connectivity solutions and the Concepta infrastructure wellness monitoring solution.

Aiir Networks connectivity solutions may have been created for Glasgow 2014 specifically, but it is a testament to the solutions that we have since been able to apply them across other sporting and business environments. It is especially gratifying that Aiir Networks connectivity came back to Glasgow as one of the cornerstones of our engagement at the European Championships.

All of Glasgow 2018’s connectivity requirements were supported by Aiir Networks intelligent connectivity services. We specialise in providing wireless connections to traditionally hard to reach locations, which is why the requirements of even the most rural of Glasgow 2018’s venues (such as Loch Lomond and Cathkin Braes) were facilitated by Aiir Networks technology.

Aiir Networks Network Admission Control and Automated Deployed solutions ensured that networks could be rapidly and consistently deployed in very short timescales within venues (complete LAN and WLAN deployment within a day) and access for diverse client groups and mission critical services completely secured. Networks delivering over 4600 LAN ports and 150 Wireless Access Points, supporting 6500 devices over 14 venues were fully implemented and operational in less than two weeks.

Our technical teams were also in place inside each venue to make sure that support was deployed quickly, which helped to ensure that crucial connectivity services were continually maintained.

Aiir can be adaptable to businesses of every size and industry, even in the most rural locations, making it the perfect connectivity solution for your business.
