FCS Global and Avaya connect Galway to the World

The Volvo Ocean Race finale and festival, which concluded in Galway last Sunday (July 8th) was regarded as one of the biggest sporting events ever held in Ireland. The festival broke all attendance with over 900,000 visitors to the event while it is estimated to be worth in excess €100 million in tourism and business income to the city and the region.

As proud 'Media Connect Partners', FCS Global in association with Avaya facilitated the demanding communications requirements for the finishing leg of the Volvo Ocean Race which took place in Galway City from June 30 – July 8. As installation and support partners to Avaya, FCS Global supplied and installed an Avaya Communications Server 1000E, encompassing a VOIP Private Branch Exchange (PBX) , which offers an IP Media Gateway system with full standby capability in the event of unforeseen down time.


The Avaya Communications Server 1000E delivered the capability to support the administration requirements of the organisers, the demands of the international media and high volume trade of the Global Village, with additional communications links being available at all times to the entertainment stage and the TV studio in Salthill. "Let’s Do it Global" enjoyed the capability to be able to deal with a variety of inputs into the system, which was demanded at such a high profile event, with the eyes of the world watching.

The five remote sites; Head Office, Media Centre, Global Village, the Entertainment Stage and the TV studio utilized the full capability of the system which allowed the use of IP Telephone handsets, which essentially gives the user the flexibility of a ‘plug and play’ option at whichever remote site they are operating from.
