Revolutionising the spectator experience for the Principality Stadium

What Was The Challenge?

1 – The Stadium wanted to deliver the ultimate fan experience at its prestigious sporting and entertainment events
2 – It aimed to share outstanding content over hundreds of HD screens around its arena
3 – This required ground-breaking technology, including a resilient core network

The Point

The Principality Stadium needed a new IT infrastructure with advanced HD media capabilities to help it attract the best events within an extremely competitive marketplace.
