Tod Caflisch is the director of IT at the Detroit Red Wings and needed to upgrade wi-fi capabilities of Joe Louis Arena with a short term solution with a new arena to be opened in 2017.  Joe Costanzo from Signal Share brings insights on both wi-fi usage and how other verticals like music and events are using Live-Fi to deliver new data.

On this Sports Geek Podcast you will learn:

  • How Tod pitched a wi-fi solution for an older building

  • Why data acquisition was a vital component of the total solution

  • How the Live-Fi solution delivered over 20,000 new sales leads

  • What apps fans use most when at an event

  • Ability to reskin and customise Live-Fi page to reflect the event at the venue
