The technology behind the performance

Current Formula One regulations restrict the number of technical personnel racing teams can have working trackside. To stay competitive, additional experts like analysts and aerodynamicists work as part of the team back at race teams’ headquarters, often thousands of miles away.

The BT network provides Williams Martini Racing with connections from every race location across the globe to the team working in Grove, Oxfordshire.

Fast facts

  • A race car has around 200 sensors generating a huge amount of telemetry
  • Each race produces between 60 and 80GB of raw data plus 60GB of video
  • BT provides the global WAN, trackside LAN and the 40Gbps campus LAN at the Williams UK headquarters
  • The BT global network enables data to be prioritised and sent to the UK in near real time for analysis

When the pressure’s on to get data flowing effortlessly around the globe one needs an expert partner who can be relied on to fix all the difficult bits anywhere.

Sometimes the bandwidth’s just not enough but it’s too expensive to add still more. Making the most of what you’ve got can often be the more intelligent network way to go.

End-to-end network integrity not only assures optimum performance but also secures data as it travels from data centre to desktop or smartphone and back.
