For the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Orange is equipping 15,000 athletes, offering a dedicated range of offers for foreign visitors and relying on 5G Private Stand Alone to connect several major venues.

Orange’s services and technological expertise form the backbone of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Orange will be on hand to offer the four billion television viewers and 15 million spectators expected to attend the Games the best connectivity experience in the history of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

As well as equipping 15,000 Olympic and Paralympic athletes with free of charge eSIMs in collaboration with Samsung, Private 5G SA will be deployed at several major venues, including the Stade de France, Arena Bercy and Paris La Défense Arena as well as along the 6km stretch of the Seine for the opening ceremony and at sea at the Marina de Marseille. This technology guarantees broadcasters a premium service with high, stable upload speeds, essential for transporting high-definition images; guaranteed ultra-low latency times for sending images in near-real time; and the benefits of superior security intrinsic to the technology.
