In the U.S., the National Football League (NFL) recently kicked off its 100th season of gridiron action, while across the pond, the U.K.’s Premier League is well underway for its 2019-2020 tilt. But no matter where you fall on the proper usage of the eternal “football” vs. “soccer” debate, one thing’s for certain—fans will be making their way to stadiums across both countries to support their teams and share every goal and touchdown with a surplus of texts, videos and social media posts that all require a massive amount of bandwidth to process.
This means that sports venues—and the IT staff tasked with managing their networks—must think more strategically and critically about taking their computing to the edge as they meet the skyrocketing demand for data processing, and work harder than ever to make sure their IT infrastructures provide network reliability and security from the moment the referee blows his first whistle.
Doing so depends on having the right IT infrastructure in the right places to meet the unique application needs that sports stadiums require, both in new builds and existing facilities. Everything from television coverage, artificial intelligence (AI) at the ticket barriers, and mobile phone bandwidth relies on it, which is exactly why Chatsworth Products (CPI) offers a variety of products that ensure stadium IT infrastructure is protected.
Below are a few CPI solutions that help IT managers in sports venues, tackle space and cost constraints when it comes to deploying or updating their network infrastructure on the pitch and beyond.
