The International Olympic Commitee (IOC) holds a 3-day seminar debriefing the technology elements of the games. It has allowed members from Pyeongchang, Rio de Janeiro, and Tokyo organizing committees to listen to Sochi’s experience with their technology partners. Topics discussed include, results services, technology infrastructure development, telecommunications provision, and spectrum management.
IOC Technology Director, Jean-Benoit Gauthier states:
The Sochi 2014 Games were truly ground-breaking for technology. For example, the Games preparations saw record online engagement by spectators, the creation of an electronic traffic management system and the large-scale development of the mobile and fibre optic networks in the Games region, all of which will deliver a great legacy for the citizens of the region. It was therefore important for us to bring together the experts that delivered and used this technology with those who will need to deliver the solutions for future Games.
