Sydney's ANZ Stadium Partners With Cisco, Telstra To Provide Fans Free Wi-Fi In '14
Sydney's ANZ Stadium will be transformed following a partnership with Telstra and Cisco to provide free Wi-Fi access to the stadium starting in '14. The Cisco Connected Stadium Wi-Fi solution will, as part of a phased project, allow fans to be able to use their mobile devices to access digital content like replays and statistics and order food and beverages from their seats. ANZ Stadium, at Sydney Olympic Park, has entered a partnership with Telstra to supply a five-year, customized network solution to deliver in-stadium wireless connectivity. The stadium will be the first to extend the technology to public areas of the stadium. Further, the New South Wales government -- through the Sydney Olympic Park Authority -- has facilitated this Wi-Fi coverage to extend around the outside of the stadium (ANZ Stadium).
