Patriots Looking To Enhance Gameday Experience At Gillette With Wi-Fi, New App
The Patriots during the offseason hired New Hampshire-based Enterasys to install a high-capacity Wi-Fi network at Gillette Stadium and have launched a new app that they hope "will change the gameday experience for Patriots ticket holders," according to Callum Borchers of the BOSTON GLOBE. Enterasys President & CEO Chris Crowell said the team's gameday app has "an alarm clock that you can get that has voices of the players and coaches telling you to wake up and get ready for gameday." He added, "You also get camera footage of the night before the game with the coaches and the players." Crowell said after arriving at the stadium, fans can "get camera angles that you wouldn’t get on television and aren’t going to get on the big board." He added, "You’re going to get access to live statistics that you normally wouldn’t get inside the stadium. So, if you’re a fantasy football fan, you can follow your players as the day goes on. And there’s Red Zone (cable channel) footage, so you can see other games and replays throughout the day and kill any dead time you might have during timeouts." Crowell said of how the app helps with concession and restroom lines, "You can order while you’re sitting in your seat, and you’ll get a notification when your food is ready, telling you where to go pick it up. And if you’re concerned about bathroom wait times, the app can also point you to the nearest bathroom with the shortest wait time. If you get up and have to go to the concession stand, and you hear the crowd roar and say, 'Oh, what play did I just miss?' there’s video replay in the gameday app" (BOSTON GLOBE, 8/18).
