Multimedia & Telecommunications

The Montreux Music & Convention Centre (2m2c) has, for a long time now, invested in new telecommunications technologies and continues to do so. High-speed internet, wired or wireless digital communications, telephony and videoconferencing available at all points in the 2m2c. A brand new Data and Switching Centre has just been installed in the 2m2c complex.

Our LAN network, routers connected by optical fibre, ensures high-speed connection in all the site’s public places, moreover, our access suppliers, Briod S.A. and Swisscom, provide us with high speed web connection with redundancy (1 Gb). Our services include:

  • high speed Internet with firewall protection.
  • creation of a VLAN network upon request.
  • LAN connections (local area network).
  • on-screen information system by BSwiss system
  • high-capacity WiFi
  • Internal TV network with HD channels available

Wherever you may be in the Montreux Music & Convention Centre, the WiFi technology provides you with high-speed wireless Internet access from a laptop or a PDA. Thus convention attendees or visitors will be able to access the web, consult their emails or access their firm’s intranet with no cable connection and without needing to say in a specific place. This service is proposed to each organiser of a convention in the 2m2c within the limits of available capacities with the possibility of adding capacities according to the number of expected users.

High voltage electricity

Supplied by the company Romande Energie by 2 average voltage transformers of 600 KVA for the Miles Davis building and by 3 transformers of 600 KVA for the Stravinski building. Making a total of 3000 KVA. The energy for pumping the water from the lake is not included and is provided by a specific average voltage transformer.

It should be noted that distribution boards can be easily connected at all points in the building. The parts where the supply of high voltage electricity is a little less flexible are: the Stravinski and Miles Davis exhibition halls, the Stravinski reception foyer, the Auditorium foyer, Miles Davis Hall, Stravinski backstage and the Auditorium balcony foyer. We propose many possibilities for accessing electricity in all points of the 2m2c by our team of electricians.

Phone lines

Swisscom is our operator. We have 2 primary connections in service, which makes 60 network lines and during the Montreux Jazz Festival, this is extended by 2 primary connections, which gives us 120 simultaneous outside connections.

Available devices:

  • 150 analogue phones
  • 20 Optiset Entry digital phones
  • 30 Optiset Advance digital phones (digital display)
  • 17 PNTE ( ISDN 2x64KB connection)
  • 8 laser faxes
  • 5 DECT mobile phones

Fluids

The 2m2c has a network for water supply and evacuation at various points in the building. This type of service is being studied along with a specific quote for each request.

Thermal comfort

The management of the various spaces is by ventilation installations capable of treating a volume of 300,000 m3/hour to provide heating for the site, air conditioning and air quality for users. A regulation and management system by programmable logic controllers ensures the functioning, adjustment, control and management of alarms for the technical installations.

Fire safety

The 2m2c is equipped with an automatic smoke detector, sprinklers for fire fighting and emergency lighting in the case of evacuation of the building. For any large-scale event, the 2m2c draws on the expertise of its safety department which evaluates the implementation of any additional means needed to counter the risk of fire.

Environment

The vegetated roof of the Stravinski building ensures perfect insulation, excellent water and air tightness, and resistance to wind and fire, whilst respecting the environment. Air conditioning is by our cooling station that pumps up water from the lake at a depth of 80m. This economic system uses very little electricity and is therefore very environment friendly. Heat is produced by natural gas installations meeting the tight standards fixed by OPAIR (Office for the Protection of Air)
