Connected stadium | Technology enablers for stadiums of the future

At a glance

In recent years, the live experience in stadiums has become more and more entwined with the online experience. Visitors expect to be able to make calls, send images and stream videos whenever they feel like it, regardless of how many other fans are doing the same things at the same time. They expect venues to provide rich, engaging digital content, smart wayfinding, e-commerce options and interactive experiences directly to their phones or through kiosk solutions and signage.

Seamless connectivity makes it possible to provide rich, engaging event content and interactive digital experiences.  

In our new whitepaper titled ‘Technology enablers for stadiums of the future’, we explore how stadiums are evolving with advanced digital infrastructure at their heart, and how cutting-edge public and private networks are changing the game on the field, in the seats and behind the scenes. 

Key takeaways
