Brentwood was honoured to receive a Royal appointment when we were asked to supply two way radio support for a Duke of Edinburgh Award event at Buckingham Palace.
The presentation day at London’s Royal residence was one of the most prestigious events in the charity’s calendar, when the scheme’s outstanding performers met the Duke of Edinburgh to receive their prizes.
At such a high profile event, organisation had to be impeccable so everything went to plan, making sure attendees had a day to remember. That is why organisers contacted Brentwood to supply two way radio support, to ensure faultless coordination on the day.
The main challenge for setting up a two way radio network was the size of Buckingham Palace itself. With over 800 rooms, and a garden which could hold Wembley Stadium four times over, ensuring the event team could stay in touch right across the 19 acre site was critical.
The coordination team was also large. With more than 7000 guests to assist and chaperone around the site, organisers needed to equip not only themselves with radios, but security and palace staff too.
All of this added up to a request for a large scale radio network which balanced faultless reliability with straightforward, intuitive use.
