Victoria Racing Club pals up with Cisco to implement world-class technology
Nov 05, 2012 (Menafn - TELECOMWORLDWIRE via COMTEX) --Cisco CSCO reported it is set to lead the field in technology innovation when it deploys the Cisco Connected Stadium Wi-Fi Solution to provide Flemington members and racegoers with the latest in Wi-Fi technology.
As the first racecourse in the world to deploy Connected Sports Solutions, the VRC is poised to make Flemington the most technology-advanced racecourse in the world.
Flemington will be the first racecourse in the world to implement the technology, which will be operational before the 2013 Melbourne Cup Carnival, allowing racegoers to quickly and easily gain high-speed, concurrent Wi-Fi Internet access from their mobile and smart phones as the action at the track unfolds. As well as keeping up with social media, members and guests will also have access to numerous specially designed services via their mobiles, including the ability to place bets, purchase food and beverages and watch the races in high definition video.
Encouraging fans to use the Cisco Connected Stadium Wi-Fi network for Internet connectivity will also help free up mobile networks, allowing fans to text and call throughout race day, something that can be challenging during major race meetings.
