Conference and events held at Twickenham Stadium will now be able to access increased internet bandwidth following the installation of a new dedicated 100Mb line specifically for non-match day business.
The new development is part of a wider £75m modernisation plan for the stadium ahead of the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
50km of cabling has been installed at the stadium, which will allow for future data throughput speeds of up to 10GB.
The 100Mb dedicated line will allow event organisers to leverage live-streaming and hybrid components of their events, while delegates attending conferences and events throughout the stadium will be able to use high speed Wi-Fi on the go.
“Organisers want the ability to stream content and engage extended audiences, while also employing a range of interactive tools for live audience engagement on the day through interactive tools and tablets. With our new dedicated bandwidth, we are ensuring that events at Twickenham stay ahead of the game,” said MD of Twickenham Experience, the body that operates all non-match day meetings, conferences and events at the stadium, Chris Morris.
Rob Brumell, Conference and Events Operations Manager, added: “With 5,500 ports within our bespoke South Stand conference and events facilities, this has more than doubled our capability at Twickenham. We have seen an influx of requests a for faster connection, whether it is for video streaming or online gaming and we can now deliver this important service to our clients and their audiences”.
