Tiscali will be supplying the network infrastructure for over 90,000 broadband entertainment terminals to be installed in pubs across the UK.
The terminals contain a library of music CDs which can be updated rapidly, along with gambling games and quizzes that can change depending on how well the terminal is doing in a particular pub.
If a game is unpopular in one location a new one can be swapped in, or if one type of game is popular more can be added remotely. If a type of music is popular the terminal can be reconfigured to reflect the demand.
The terminals will be connected to a central hub using Tiscali's broadband network as part of a two-year deal with Inspired Broadcast Networks, the online gaming company behind the terminals.
Inspired also supplies the terminals to casinos, bingo halls and licensed betting offices for online gaming.
Because of the amount of revenue at stake, the system needs a robust connection as well as an audit trail.
To help maintain the service, and to audit the system, Tiscali is providing twin circuits to each terminal to offer a back-up solution should one connection go down.
The deal has also allowed Inspired to start building a data recovery facility at Tiscali's Milton Keynes data centre so that details of games and bets can be restored in the event of a system crash.
