Williams Martini Racing relies on BT to connect its race team from tracks around the world

Williams gains from improved data performance


The Williams Martini Racing team now relies on BT to connect the race team from tracks around the world to the race operations centre in Grove, Oxfordshire (UK). With each race producing between 60 and 80 GB of raw data that needs to be sent securely and analysed in real time, high-speed secure connections are of paramount importance. BT’s global network is delivering a 100Mbps connection speed from every test and race venue. Engineers at the track side and at the Grove race operations room can now make the most of the car’s performance by sharing and analysing very large quantities of data in real time, enabling them to collaborate and make changes to improve car performance during practise, in qualifying and during the race itself.

The new network infrastructure has been further optimised through the deployment of acceleration capabilities, removing latency issues when race teams communicate with the control centre back home.
