STOCKHOLM. 2015-06-25, by Nikolas Georgii

Clavister (Nasdaq: Clav), a leader in high-performance network security, has partnered with DataCom and Ruckus Wireless to build a large, secure and reliable WiFi network for the 2015 Royal Swedish Yacht Club ÅF Offshore Race in Stockholm.

With over 200,000 spectators expected at the event, the network has been designed to handle multiple access points and a large volume of concurrent users. It covers the entire island of Skeppsholmen in the centre of Stockholm. By implementing web filtering and managing bandwidth usage, Clavister’s technology will provide spectators and participants with secure, high-performance access to WiFi.

Jim Carlsson, CEO at Clavister, said: "In close cooperation with our partners DataCom and Ruckus Wireless, we have supplied a large, secure, reliable and scalable WiFi network for visitors and partners at the ÅF Offshore Race. Our solution means that the hundreds of thousands of spectators and participants can safely connect to the network from many different access points on Skeppsholmen through the duration of the regatta."

Clavister’s solutions are used to secure some of the world’s largest outdoor Wi-Fi networks, such as the 2015 World Ski Championships, and a ‘smart city’ project in Brazil which will deliver secure wireless networks in 1600 locations in the country, serving 30 million citizens in partnership with the KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Saab.

The Royal Swedish Yacht Club ÅF Offshore Race is one of the world’s biggest ocean races, with over 200 boats from across Northern Europe taking on the 350 nautical mile course. This year’s regatta begins on Thursday 25th June, with the boats setting sail on Sunday 28th.
