increasing capacit Y
and creating a custom wireless network
facility for the Indy 500 that included
nearly a dozen small cells around the
exterior of the track, and added 20 new
antennas to the DAS, bringing the total
inside The Brickyard to more than 200.
But Samberg points out that Verizon’s
commitment to delivering a great IndyCar
fan experience isn’t exclusive to the track.
“We want to enhance the experience for
IndyCar fans no matter where they are: at
home, at the in-laws, or even in line at the
grocery store,” he says. “There’s no reason
to miss the race. With the INDYCAR 15 app,
fans watching the race on TV can go
deeper with in-car camera views and other
telemetry. There’s never been more ways
It’s not only fans who are better able to
interact with the activity on the track.
Teams and drivers are making use of
Verizon technology, too. In some cases they
are on the leading edge of innovations that
will eventually be available to fans. For
example, Verizon is working with teams
and drivers by offering camera angles
and views that aren’t available over the
broadcast network. While some of that is
now accessible by Verizon customers, the
greater ability to multicast is one area
where Verizon is pushing development.
Access to as much information as
possible is critical to the teams, and Verizon
is working closely with them to meet their
needs. Just like race fans, drivers are now
using the INDYCAR 15 app on tablet, saving
precious time by viewing real-time data while
still buckled into their cars in the pit lane.
And that expanded network capacity?
It comes full circle with the drivers who
are better able to communicate in real
time with their fans via social media
postings – as Verizon Team Penske driver
Will Power demonstrated on the Grand
Prix of Indy podium, snapping a selfie with
Juan Pablo Montoya and Graham Rahal
that went straight to his fans on Twitter at
the speed of Verizon 4G LTE.
