The IT infrastructure work surrounding Bahrain's Formula One (F-1) race track is scheduled to be complete by March 2004, as Siemens has set about designing, deploying and project managing the implementation of the required telecommunications and internet technologies.

As part of the project, Siemens will deploy a fibre optic network involving 55 km. This network will be used to transmit video, audio and data signals from the outside distributing boards along the track circuits to the main distribution via a multiplex system. The vendor is also installing a track video surveillance system featuring 40 remote controlled pole mounted autodrome cameras around the circuit.

"To meet the demanding requirements of the Bahrain F-1 race circuit users, Siemens proposed to take advantage of the extremely fast technological development in this field, such as to employ gigabit ethernet, which is widely used and recognised, and based on international standards," says Adrian Wood, country manager of Siemens Bahrain.
