NEW DELHI: Country's leading software services provider HCL Technologies today said it will provide IT support to Volvo Ocean Race. 

HCL will be responsible for developing and delivering IT solutions for the 2017-18 edition of the race around the world, the IT firm said in a BSE filing.

The IT infrastructure, being developed in collaboration with HCL, will form the backbone of Volvo Ocean Race's streaming and TV production for key events such as arrivals, departures and the In-Port Race series, it said. 

The event is held every three years. 

HCL will provide services such as inter-site connectivity, digital content delivery, mobile data and infrastructure with full redundancy, Wi-Fi networks, and multimedia facilities for media centres and race offices. 

The company will also provide end-to-end IT support in setting up the Race villages in all 12 ports. 

Volvo Ocean Race CEO Mark Turner said that the upcoming edition of the race will be more digitally focused than ever before. 

"Connecting the expected three million Race Village visitors, the 5,000 accredited journalists and our tens of millions of fans around the world is an immense task," he said. 

"We are excited to be supporting such a momentous event in the extreme sporting calendar," said Ashish Gupta, Corporate Vice President & Head of EMEA, HCL Technologies.
