Glasgow, UK (PRWEB UK) 31 October 2012

Following Celtic Football Club's recent qualification to the group stage of the UEFA Champions League, for the first time in four years, the Scottish Premier League Club recognised that with such a prolific season ahead there is sure to be increased media attention surrounding the club.

To fully accommodate all members of the press and media, Boston Networks has worked in partnership with Celtic Football Club to design, deploy and maintain two high speed and secure wireless networks, within its multi million pound stadium, Celtic Park.

The primary network has been designed to provide connectivity within the main press area and also within both ‘snappers areas' situated behind each set of goal posts, within the 60,000 capacity stadium. This high performance wireless network will significantly enhance the transmission of live commentary and also enable journalists and photographers to stream live footage and instantly update images to key sports web sites.

To further support the press, a secondary network has been deployed within the Stadium's ‘mixed zone'. This network will be utilised by all the major sports broadcasters to record and transmit all the exciting post match interviews and instantly transmit live footage to sports channels around the world.

Boston Networks has already deployed both wireless networks and performed rigorous testing, within Scotland's largest football stadium, ahead of Celtic's first home match with Portuguese giants ‘Benfica'. The system was used in earnest before, during and after this match and the performance and feedback were first class.
