London Olympics Technology Operations Centre
The hub putting Olympic tech through its paces and shoring up the games against online attacks...
This is mission control for the technology that will run the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The centre will oversee the computer systems that record the games results and relay them worldwide. In the event that anything goes wrong with the Olympics technology infrastructure, this is the control room that will sort any problems.
Before the start of the Olympics next year, the games organisers will test how the centre will cope with every conceivable technological disaster - from online attacks on the Olympics system to key equipment being unplugged.
The London-based Technology Operations Centre (TOC), which was officially unveiled today, will be staffed by 450 people during the games who will look after the centre's 9,500 computers, 900 servers and 1,000 network and security devices around the clock.
