We can now reveal that we enabled the integration of Cipherlab mobile devices and scanners into the ATOS IT systems for the London 2012 Summer Olympics.
In 2008 the company was set a challenge, to deliver a fully integrated solution for the planning and management of the ticket management, security and fleet management of the 2012 Olympics. A tremendous task, we were able to work alongside ATOS and other companies within a technology consortium to do this.
For the first time the decision was made that IT for the games would be run via a cloud solution. At Gane we were involved in the data migration project into the cloud and we integrated a range of Ciperlab mobile devices and scanners, providing a responsive and flexible solution to meet our clients requirements and ensure mutual Olympic success.
Working environments don’t get much tougher than the Olympics, with 8.8 million ticket holders descending on the City of London across 34 different sporting venues. With that in mind, we provided the CPT 9690 x90 Mobile ACS tool (Access Control Project) – the industrial mobile device that was designed to be used even in the toughest and most demanding working conditions.
The wireless capable device (supported at the Olympics by BT Infinity) allowed for data specific to ticket holders, including a photo to be captured and stored. The data was then validated by the barcode on the ticket via a secure web server feeding back specific information. The device capabilities ensured that only valid ticket holders could pass through not only helping to maintain a high level of security but accelerating productivity.
Alongside the CPT 9690 x90, we integrated the 1560 Laser X 41 scanner into BMW Fleet Management System for effective security control. The 1560 Laser X 41 ensured that every coach and car was recorded and validated at check points before entry. The device has a 90metre line of sight range, which meant it was ideal for the task in hand.
We are delighted that we delivered a responsive flexible solution that fully met our clients’ needs and were recognised and commended by the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games for not only the successful delivery but for exceeding our goals and SLA.
At Gane we helped to ensure that the 10,500 athletes competing, that the millions of ticket holders, the 21,000 media and broadcasters and all those who were part of the Olympics were provided with an efficient and effective security solution that helped shape the London 2012 Summer Olympics.
