Riedel Delivers Network, Routing, Comms for G20 in Australia

Riedel Australia partnered with the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre (BCEC) to provide a fiber and radio network for the 2014 G20 summit in Brisbane, Australia.

The companies deployed Riedel's MediorNet real-time fiber infrastructure along with more than 200 Hytera DMR radios for event. The system also provided audio, video and communications services throughout the two-day summit.

MediorNet's ability to route signals in real time was critical to the G20 event. In total, 37 MediorNet frames were installed throughout the BCEC, providing complete path and signal redundancy for the large number of HD video channels, Ethernet tunnels and audio and comms channels used for the summit.

Alongside the host broadcast services, provided by NEP Australia, Riedel's MediorNet network enabled transport of video feeds to and from the main conference rooms, media suites, hospitality areas, security zones, and delegates' offices. It also allowed the BCEC team to embed and de-embed any audio source to and from the video streams.
