Formula 1® is the highest class of single-seat racing sanctioned by the FIA and races take place in some of the most diverse and challenging environments around the world. As such, it is vital that real-time content reaches its intended audience in timely fashion, as even the slightest downtime can affect overall performance.
Formula 1® fans are the most passionate and engaged of any sport, as can be seen with visitor numbers to its website. On race days Formula1.com often needs to cope with spikes of up to 100 times the usual number of visitors
The challenge for Formula 1® was to create a web experience that would provide fans with a more innovative and truly immersive experience.
The tailored service means 7 million viewers in 188 countries simultaneously share data in real-time, a truly staggering feat of design.
Formula 1® asked Tata Communications to create a single-supplier Global Content Deliver Network (CDN), which also comprised managed hosting, global IP network, along with on-site engineering for optimum performance.
The Content acceleration platform is fully scalable to take into account the fluctuating demands of users visiting the Formula 1® website.
Each location needed to be provided with 100Mbps MPLS circuits, while dedicated on-site and remote support team needed to be on-hand 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
For seamless interoperability and remote operations, Tata Communications also connected each race location to the Formula One Management’s Remote Operations Centre in UK, enabling key broadcast and production operations to run in real-time.
By providing a single service solution, Formula 1® can benefit from having synergy across the platform, while the tailored service delivers to global standards and specific SLAs.
The tailored service means 7 million viewers in 188 countries simultaneously share data in real-time, a truly staggering feat of design and implementation, for a more efficient delivery of content and images, so enhancing their user-experience.
The result being that 67 million unique users can make the most of a consistent quality and website experience
