The technology behind it

The Purple studio is remote controlled from the TeliaSonera Head Offices in Stockholm, and there is a 100 GB fiber connection between the Purple studio and the TeliaSonera control room. In addition to this, TeliaSonera has upgraded the mobile network in the whole city of Malmö,and free WiFi Homerun hotspots have been installed. In the Malmö Arena, where the finals of Eurovision Song Contest are being held, we have installed a fixed network and we provide the connection between the audio from all the TV commentators and the TV viewers in all the countries, via our ISDN services.
