Verizon Business is the technology integration and managed services lead for the project, deploying an Extreme large public venue solution architecture inclusive of Wi-Fi 6 access points and real-time analytics to power innovative, immersive, and compelling fan experiences, while improving operating efficiency. The deployment spans the 11 high speed race and super speedways operated directly by NASCAR.
Leveraging Extreme’s cloud-driven Wi-Fi 6, NASCAR will offer high-efficiency, high-capacity networking that will serve as the critical foundation for powering experiences like mobile ticketing, mobile concessions, and mobile sports betting. ExtremeAnalytics™ provides NASCAR with real-time visibility into the health and performance of the Wi-Fi network, mobile application usage patterns across the stadium, and fan preferences. Additionally, they’ll have a single pane of glass to better understand and optimize venue operations. These insights will enable NASCAR to continually improve fan-facing experiences and operational efficiencies of each track.
The NASCAR deployment also includes Wi-Fi 6 and network analytics for back-office operations at the organization’s Daytona headquarters.
