Low Latency on the Formula One Track

Renowned for our specialism in aviation and motorsport, Voip Unlimited bring Sport Pesa Racing Point Formula One team into new speeds with Superfast connectivity services.

We provide MPLS & VPN services connecting the team’s wind tunnel in Europe back to its HQ in Silverstone. In the high-octane industry of Formula One racing, mere tenths of seconds can separate winners from losers: in the race to provide ultra-fast networks to this year’s F1 championship, the margin for error is one hundred times faster. As a successful Formula One team, achieving fourth position, in Constructors’ Championship, their best-ever finish in F1, Sport Pesa Racing Point work to the finest detail to improve car performance. Therefore data transfer and speed of connectivity is paramount to their success. Through knowing Voip Unlimited as a favoured supplier in the F1 industry, who were already aware of the requirements, restrictions and expectations of F1 technology, Sport Pesa Racing Point approached Voip to provide a bespoke and reliable service.

Time in a wind tunnel can cost millions of dollars and so any loss of connectivity can be extremely damaging. Sport Pesa Racing Point needed a supplier who could speak the same sporting technology language, with a reputation of delivering solutions that work, with no excuses. Wind Tunnel testing the 60% scale replica Formula 1 car at 180kph containing over 500 sensors generates 37Gb of data a week. All of which needs to be available live back in the UK for analysis and decision making. The model itself is designed and manufactured in house with over 1500 components made from steel, aluminium, carbon fibre and 3D printed materials.

Bill Peters, IT Director, Sport Pesa Racing Point said of the partnership:
“We generate vast amounts of data from the track, the wind-tunnel and our various simulations so it is imperative that we can ship this data to where it is needed. If connectivity was compromised, we would lose our competitive edge. I had worked with Voip Unlimited with previous Formula One teams and instantly knew we needed their backing at Sport Pesa Racing Point.” “From a sanity checking, two-way street point of view, it is extremely reassuring to have a supplier with the right technical knowledge for our particular industry. Formula One is unforgiving when it comes to technology, so I needed to use a supplier who could deliver on its promise. To have a company that could fill in the gaps has prevented us from running into problems at a later date. Also, many larger providers cannot provide the bespoke solutions offered by Voip Unlimited.”

Mark Pillow, MD of Voip Unlimited commented:

“Formula 1 Technology representatives need security, reliability, confidentiality and a self-serve agreements. Our relationship with F1 teams are a Technical Partnership support based on flexibility and responsiveness, the industry waits for no one. We enjoy doing tailored solutions and as a born and bred techy myself I enjoy some of the challenges given to us by this industry. I could not be prouder of the progress Sport Pesa Racing Point have made; we are an extremely proud Official Supplier”
