AOC communication tools at Beijing Olympics

AOC goes high-tech@AOC

Staff will work in virtual offices, accessing the AOC servers from Beijing. The experience will be seamless, provided by a permanent data connection between Beijing and the servers.

The equipment list includes 75 laptops with the latest software provided by Lenovo, 100 satellite mobile phones provided by Samsung, 50 Blackberries and a few hundred kilometres of extension cords.

In addition to mobile phones and Blackberries, the AOC will use Short Message Service (SMS) to communicate with staff and athletes during the Games.
