The Nokia solution, including Wi-Fi, small cells and Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC), creates efficient connectivity that enriches fan experience by enabling interaction with the team, sponsors and services, social networking and augmented reality. At the same time the technology help in optimizing venue operations and improves cost efficiency. The data can be kept local with MEC, improving security and decreasing the need for backhaul.
