Telstra announces ANZ Stadium to become Wi-Fi connected

Telstra announces ANZ Stadium to become Wi-Fi connected
October 29, 2013

Telstra has announced that it will supply Sydney's ANZ Stadium with Wi-Fi connectivity for the next five years after becoming the venue's exclusive technology partner.

The announcement follows the recent announcement by the Sydney Cricket Ground and Allianz Stadium that they would have Wi-Fi technology in place by January 2014.

Telstra has selected Cisco as its preferred technology supplier.

Introducing the partnership, Telstra Business Development Lead executive Kathy-Anne McManus explained that the technology will provide ANZ Stadium with a robust and reliable solution, as well as providing the option for additional digital media functionality creating a whole new experience for spectators.

McManus stated "this technology will further enhance ANZ Stadium's reputation as one of the world's great sports and entertainment venues.

"The Telstra solution was chosen due to its ability to address the unique challenges of providing high-density Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) coverage to crowds in sporting venues. The WiFi network takes full advantage of Telstra's digital media capability to create a truly dynamic and engaging environment for fans."

ANZ Stadium Managing Director Daryl Kerry said the stadium wanted to go beyond just providing internet access for spectators and instead was looking to create a truly engaging and memorable experience for fans.

Kerry added "we're excited to provide a multitude of media delivery options and ways for our fans to get the most out of the events at the Stadium. Telstra's communications solution suits all of our requirements now, and provides an exciting road map of opportunities as we go forward.

"The first stage of the rollout will connect sponsor content to WiFi devices throughout the stadium, allowing information, announcements and video content to be displayed to fans."

The ANZ Stadium WiFi network will be implemented in the coming months, and will be available to the public from the start of 2014 NRL season.
