SIGNATURE SPORTS VENUE & SPORTING EVENT PROJECTS:
Ashton Gate is Bristol’s largest stadium, with a 27,000-capacity, including 35 meeting rooms, it is ‘home’ to Bristol Sport’s Bristol City FC and Bristol Rugby.
Beyond providing a new platform for applications, NetOS® gives programmability and security options to enable consistent, reliable internet access in all situations, meeting end user demand for match days and conference events throughout the year.
NetOS® means that despite large concrete and metal structures and huge numbers of users, the stadium will deliver high-speed Wi-Fi continuously. The project at Ashton Gate Stadium is an exciting step for sports stadia worldwide, as large venues look for better access to reliable, high-speed Wi-Fi networks for their customers and own commercial applications.
