Connected stadium | Technology enablers for stadiums of the future

At a glance

In recent years, the integration of live stadium experiences with the digital realm has grown significantly. Visitors now expect the ability to make calls, share images, and stream videos whenever they desire, regardless of simultaneous activities of other fans. They want venues to deliver immersive digital content, smart navigation, e-commerce choices and interactive experiences directly to their mobile devices or through kiosk solutions and signage.

Seamless connectivity facilitates the provision of rich, engaging event content and interactive digital experiences.

In our new whitepaper titled ‘Technology enablers for stadiums of the future’, we delve into the transformative journey of stadiums, where cutting-edge digital infrastructure takes centre stage. Discover how state-of-the-art public and private networks are revolutionising the game both on and off the field, from the stands to the backstage.
