Communication Specialists Leverages Riedel Gear and Expertise for Record-Breaking London Cycling Event

LONDON — Nov. 26, 2013 — Riedel Communications, a leading provider of real-time video, audio, data, and communications networks, today announced that it supplied an Artist digital matrix intercom system and terrestrial trunked digital radio (TETRA) infrastructure to Communication Specialists Ltd. (CSL) to enable communications throughout a series of professional and amateur cycling events that included 65,000 riders over a single weekend in August. The Riedel equipment facilitated reliable integrated radio communications over 100 miles of roads, from central London to the Surrey countryside.

“Riedel is a tremendously professional company that offers planning, preparation, and delivery that is second to none, and the company’s technical team on the ground works magic in ensuring that installed systems perform optimally at all times,” said Steve Napier, project manager at Communication Specialists Ltd. “We really enjoyed joining forces with Riedel for the event and look forward to working together again.”

Representing the U.K.’s largest ever mass-participation cycling event, amateur riders completed the 100-mile challenge on the same closed roads covered by the event’s professional racers, with the added incentive of raising money for good causes. The best action of the day was broadcast live on TV in the U.K. and internationally to an audience of millions.

In delivering a complete communications system that supported diverse race elements ranging from organization to security to production, CSL selected and constructed seven antenna sites — including one at BT Tower — throughout the route, as well as a 3G backup. Working alongside CSL technicians, the Riedel team specified, installed, and supported a digital radio backbone including the Artist intercom system and more than 1,200 TETRA radios and accessories. The resulting solution covered 11 zones extending into the countryside.
