Infosys and Huawei on Tuesday jointly launched Smart Stadium Solution to provide high-speed Wi-Fi access and smart services for users in stadiums and exhibition centers.
The solution integrates Huawei’s Agile Network and Infosys’ Entertainment Experience Platform. This solution can be combined with entertainment hubs to enable innovative service experiences and operational models.
Since the launch of its Agile Stadium Solution in 2012, Huawei has been operating wireless network projects for sports stadiums worldwide, providing high-speed Internet services for spectators.
This need for better connected stadiums has brought Huawei and Infosys together. Huawei has accumulated extensive experience in the networking realm and Infosys has rich experience in engineering large-scale omni-channel consumer engaging products and solutions, spanning online, mobile, social as well as unified communications technologies.
The Smart Stadium Solution is based on a fully connected WLAN network and enables an enhanced user experience and better connected stadiums. With this joint solution, Huawei provides the WLAN network infrastructure while Infosys offers a multi-tenant, cloud-based platform with managed operations and services. Huawei’s Agile Controller transmits user and terminal information to Infosys’ service platform through network interfaces, assisting stadium operators in provisioning innovative services and gaining more revenue.
Infosys’ senior vice-president and global head, engineering services Sudip Singh said, “Infosys’ rich Entertainment Experience Platform, together with Huawei’s market-leading Wi-Fi infrastructure, unlocks this value. This joint global solution will deliver a truly engaging end-user experience while unlocking significant business opportunities to entertainment center owners and event sponsors.”
Infosys shares were trading 0.70 per cent up at Rs 1,120 at 12.17 pm on Tuesday.
