Where IT fits into Formula E racing
As noted in the article:
The IT team plays a critical role in the success of the TAG Heueur Porsche Formula E team at the Formula E races. They are responsible for setting up the network and transmitting the data that ensures that drivers, team members and headquarters get up-to-date information in real-time. Data is vital to the team’s success during the races.
The network setup process for the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E team is a challenging task, since the team is constantly on the move to different racing locations worldwide, similar to a rock band tour. Once the team arrives at a new location, one IT team member has to quickly set up the network from scratch, as quickly and efficiently as possible. To ensure they can meet this need, the IT team chooses high quality products that are simple to use.
