BURLINGTON, Mass., July 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Kwicr today announced that Hugh Kelly, the company's vice president of marketing and strategy, will participate in a panel conversation at the Ninth Annual Sports & Entertainment Alliance in Technology (SEAT) conference. This year's SEAT conference will be held in San Francisco from July 19-22, 2015.
The only peer-driven conference in the sports and entertainment industry, SEAT provides executives with an opportunity to share ideas, best practices and lessons learned in their application of technology to address business imperatives and new opportunities. Attendees gain insight into how technology can be used to generate new streams of revenue and engage customers, clients and fans in new ways.
Kelly will participate in "The Evolution of Stadium Connectivity – From DAS to Small Cell, PON and Beyond," an interactive session that will look not only at how stadium connectivity is changing, but also how new technologies enable teams to offer compelling applications and content that enhance the game-day experience. The panel will be moderated by Jared Miller, chief technology officer of the Atlanta Falcons and Katee Panter, senior vice president of enterprise technology at Madison Square Garden.
Panel details include:
- Panel: The Evolution of Stadium Connectivity – From DAS to Small Cell, PON and Beyond"
- Date: July 21, 2015 at 1:30 p.m. PDT
- Location: The Westin St. Francis in San Francisco
- Participants: The panel will include executives from 5Bars, Connectivity Wireless, Horizon Communications, IBM, Kwicr, Van Wagner Sports & Entertainment and Verizon Wireless
"The game-day experience is changing as consumers increasingly look to their mobile phones and tablets to provide a high-definition, close-up view of the action while sharing information with other fans," Kelly said. "With many consumers now enjoying access to robust new sports media products at home – including some that enable fans to monitor multiple games simultaneously – providing a rich media experience at stadiums is absolutely crucial to generate attendance and deliver the full game-day experience; however, existing cellular and Wi-Fi networks are all too often not up to the task."
Kwicr's Mobile Delivery Network (MDN) enables the owners of mobile applications, including those for viewing streaming video, to increase the performance of their apps across any cellular or Wi-Fi network and on any Android or iOS device. On average, the MDN delivers app data 30 percent faster than networks that utilize a content delivery network (CDN) alone, with far higher performance gains – up to 180 percent or more – occurring when mobile broadband performance wanes.
"We complement CDNs and aim to do for mobile broadband what they accomplished for the Internet backbone," added Kelly. "Mobile applications make numerous new products and services available to sports fans, but the quality of delivery is crucial. No one has any patience for slow or under-performing apps."
