While the majority of London debates whether it will be possible to move around the capital city during the Olympics - and if they're even willing to try - technology experts have confirmed that their systems will be working during the Games.
According to a report by Tech Republic, the teams in charge of the IT infrastructure that will play an important role in this year's Games have been practising for worst-case scenarios. In fact, 750 of them. This includes power failures and problems in the server rooms to if several employees are unwell.
The company behind the event's technology implementation, Atos, recreated three of the busiest days at the Olympics across each of its 33 venues to iron out any potential problems and ensure reactions are quick during the London 2012 Games.
Michele Hyron, chief integrator at Atos for the London 2012 Games, told the news provider that there is no place to hide if anything goes wrong: "Unlike other IT projects, the Olympics are delivered and executed under the eyes of the world and there are no second chances. This makes all the testing - and especially the final technical rehearsal that we complete - absolutely critical to our preparation."
Furthermore, the report added that the technology team will be growing to 330 people over the coming weeks as demands increase. Every athlete will need to be processed, while 200,000 people will be given privileges to be involved in sporting events in one way or another. London 2012's IT infrastructure will be moving to a 24-7 operation from July 13th in what is set to be an early test for those involved.
Meanwhile, fears continue as to whether other infrastructure will hold up across London. The Jubilee underground train line - which is going to be a key route in and out of Stratford - recently had a new signalling system installed to help increase the number of trains that can run and reduce delays. But with problems continuing on all lines, Transport for London is already encouraging commuters to find new routes around the capital to ease the pressure.
With 31 days left until the event begins, the capital's technology is not far away from its biggest test yet.
