The solution

Atos collaborated closely with the BBC Cymru Wales to deliver a new network as the Center’s IT backbone and integration of audio visual (AV) systems and tools.
Robust program management was critical to coordinate delivery of such a logistically and technologically complex project and a host of new systems within one space, including Local Area Network (LAN), Wi-Fi and state-of-the-art AV Systems.

Business benefit

BBC Cymru Wales has the modern technology infrastructure it needs to continue to educate, inform and entertain people in Wales and more widely.
This gives BBC Cymru Wales the bandwidth, capacity and flexibility required to produce new forms of content and support ultra-high definition production as technologies and techniques evolve. The project also made a significant step forward to the BBC’s goal to cut carbon emissions by 24% by 2022.
