British M2M/IoT mobile data specialist Cellhire plc provided 11,000 mobile data connections, with voice service activated on request, to the organisers, media, athletes and attendees at the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics and Paralympics in China.
The athletes, organisers and attendees benefited from secure, reliable, and affordable data bundles, enabling them to communicate securely not only in China but importantly, with family and friends in their home countries.
Global media including public and commercial tv, radio and online-streaming broadcasters utilised large data bundles on Cellhire SIM cards, mobile hotspots, smartphones, and other value-added telecoms services to broadcast and report in real-time.
Cellhire will provide the same suite of services at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar later this year, where the company has established a direct relationship with the network provider and official sponsor Ooredoo.
Cellhire UK Managing Director, Matt Bennett, says, “Cellhire is the preferred supplier of mobile data and M2M/IoT connectivity for clients involved in very large events around the world. Being able to offer secure mobile data connections for use in China helped to protect user privacy and mitigate risk to personal data.”
“We have an excellent track record in the global sports and entertainment fields for providing data connections and telecom solutions through the close relationships we have with network providers around the world.”
“In total, we have provided many tens of thousands of connections at major events, such as Olympic, Paralympic and Winter Olympic Games, FIFA World Cup, UEFA Euro Finals, Commonwealth Games and the Tour de France. Many of which enables the media to have reliable and secure data connections to live-broadcast to their audiences”, Bennett adds.
