Spice Girls concert the first in Ireland to have full capacity live streaming with Vilicom mobile coverage system
With the Vilicom system installed, Croke Park no longer suffers from mobile connectivity dropouts caused by network capacity and density limitations when huge numbers of people are in the stadium at once. As a result, the five terabytes of mobile traffic, which is the equivalent of 2,360 hours of broadcast-quality video or 650,000 digital photos, could be shared worldwide concurrently.
“We are delighted to have been part of this project to bring fans at Croke Park seamless connectivity for any of their upload and download requirements. For 90 minutes in the middle of the Spice Girls gig the upload volume of 78,000+ fans exceeded the download as people live streamed video and posted selfies across social media channels, which never would have been possible before. With the increasing demand for always-on and one-touch connectivity mobile coverage has to be a priority for other stadia to keep fans happy and coming back,” said Sean Keating, CEO at Vilicom.
Connectivity is a huge opportunity for business and property owners to increase the value of their assets, providing customers and employees with better experiences and eliminating the need to rely on WiFi that can be unreliable. Gas, electricity, water and broadband aren’t thought twice about and mobile coverage needs to be considered in exactly the same way, not as an unnecessary cost.
Vilicom’s Building Connections service, the first indoor mobile coverage solution designed with the building owner in mind, is now available across the UK & Ireland.
