innovaphone is again providing the communication infrastructure for the international rowing competition

2014 World Rowing Under 23 Championships in Varese
(PresseBox) (Sindelfingen, ) Sindelfingen, 21 July 2014 - at this year’s World Rowing U23 Championships at Lago di Varese from 23 to 27 July 2014, the innovaphone system innovaphone PBX will again be ensuring smooth communication both on land and on the platforms in the water.

This year, the Under 23 Rowing Championships take place in Schiranna, on Lago di Varese. This is an international competition with participants from 50 countries. Last year, approximately 3,400 rowers competed against each other during the four-day World Rowing Masters, the largest international rowing competition for athletes above the age of 27. Tourists from around the world cheered on the athletes.
The “Sociatà Canottieri Varese” was founded in 1927 and occupies an important position in international rowing. In the previous year, the society had decided in favour of installing a VoIP solution by innovaphone in order to avoid the problems that had occurred in previous competitions. The new system should ensure staff communication both on land and on the platforms in the water to ensure optimum monitoring and management of the individual competitions throughout the event. The solution was excellent: an innovaphone VoIP system, consisting of two IP800 VoIP gateways, IP110 telephones and a GSM gateway was used. The GSM gateway was connected via an ISDN port on the innovaphone PBX thus providing access to the public network. The innovaphone PBX, a Unified Communications solution, which has all the necessary UC features such as conferencing and video, proved to be a very convincing solution with its high performance.
The communication infrastructure including the positioning of the telephones at the U23 Rowing Championships, which will begin in a few days, was completely redesigned on the basis of innovaphone technology. However, the most important innovations concern events planned in the coming years, which foresee additional functionalities of the innovaphone Unified Communications solution and a DECT telephone system.
