SALEM, N.H., Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The start of NFL training camp last week didn't only signify a new season for football teams across the country. Stadiums nationwide are entering a fan-driven revolution, which calls for high-density Wi-Fi solutions and superior bandwidth that flows from the turf to the stands. Enterasys Networks, a Siemens Enterprise Communications Company, is already driving this initiative with the implementation of its IdentiFi wireless solution at Gillette Stadium, the home of the New England Patriots, and with the upcoming deployment at the University of New Hampshire's esteemed Whittemore Center Arena. The initiatives deliver 100 percent, free wireless access to visitors, enabling a more connected and immersive fan experience. In addition, the user data collected from these networks can help teams be much more informed when it comes to improving the in-game experience.

In a SEAT Conference Panel including Enterasys' John Brams, director of venues and hospitality, experts will analyze the Wi-Fi solutions being offered in stadiums today and address the ongoing efforts around delivering top-of-the-line solutions that satisfy the expectations of fans and the needs of marketing and corporate sponsors.
