The key challenge for any large public venue is capacity. The UK’s largest stadium, for example, has a seating capacity of 90,000. Now factor in the Ofcom estimate that over 70% of the British population own a smartphone. That means — potentially — 63,000 people in one place watching a match or event and trying to use the wireless network. But that’s not all. Most stadiums and arenas use private and secure radio technologies (also known as PMR/DMR) for administrative, security, asset management and other operational purposes. iWireless Solutions understands the importance of undisrupted availability of these technologies.
iWireless Solutions can tailor a high-capacity wireless solution that will do more than just improve connectivity throughout your stadium. Additional benefits include an engaged audience that is immersed in the stadium experience and a greater social media standing, as well as a competitive edge, the chance to attract different demographics and the opportunity to explore additional revenue opportunities. iWireless Solutions has been at the forefront of the concept of the connected stadium since 2009. We have provided a variety of services to over 70% of the UK’s high capacity (35000+) stadiums.
As the leading design and installation authority for stadium systems in the UK, iWireless Solutions fully understands the challenges of providing wireless services to many thousands of visitors in a restricted space.
