This week, Axis Communications hosted its annual VIP Partner event in Edinburgh. Gathering its valued Channel Partners to discuss industry trends and technological advancements, it’s also an opportunity for the market leader in network video to host its Partner Awards Ceremony.
This year, Boston Networks was thrilled to be awarded the coveted ‘Innovative Project of the Year’ Award for our work with The European Tour and The Ryder Cup.
Fredrik Thor, Regional Sales Manager Northern Europe, Axis Communications, states:
“I would like to congratulate Boston Networks on being awarded the Innovative Solution of the Year Award at the 2014 Axis NE Partner Awards. The solution they delivered at the Ryder Cup overcame a series of logistical and environmental challenges to enable the safety and security of the many thousands of people that attended the event.”
Boston Network and The Ryder Cup
Boston Networks worked with The European Tour for over 18 months to deliver a world class communications infrastructure and intelligent IP security system for the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles.
To ensure the PGA Course was protected and critical event preparations were uninterrupted, Boston Networks deployed a full Course protection surveillance solution, utilising Axis surveillance camera, to monitor all areas of the course in the lead up to the prestigious event.
To fully support the Ryder Cup event security and safety strategy, Boston Networks designed and delivered an IP Security system to run across the on course network and provide megapixel views of all areas of the course, as well as the key public transport routes leading to Gleneagles.
Providing a complete visual overview of the course and key local transport locations, the security solution was carefully designed with visitor movement in mind and encompassed high speed Axis HDTV IP cameras, providing 30x optical zoom and precise pan/tilt performance for wide area coverage and optimal detail when zooming.
