The Broncos now have a 100 Mbps Ethernet Dedicated Internet line for high-speed Internet access as well as a 100 Mbps Ethernet Private Line connecting the stadium to the team’s headquarters and training facility. In addition to the improved fan experience, the network upgrade is helping the Broncos improve productivity by accelerating the transfer of game video and access to coaching applications in their offices. The increased bandwidth allowed the IT staff to move away from tape-based backup systems, allowing for simpler, more reliable disaster recovery methods.The Broncos are also using Comcast Business TV services for the HDTVs throughout the stadium and Comcast Business PRI Trunks for voice services at both locations. “From texting, posting to social media or checking their fantasy team, sports fans are doing much more than just watching the game when they attend any professional sporting event these days,” said Shawn Adamson, regional vice president for Comcast Business. “In fact, given the density of people and Internet-enabled mobile devices in a single location looking to get online, stadiums present unique networking challenges that our Ethernet services are solving for the Broncos and professional sports teams across the U.S.” About the Denver Broncos Denver Broncos football enters its 54th season in 2013 as the team seeks to return to the pinnacle of success it enjoyed with back-to-back Super Bowl wins in 1997 and ‘98. Playing for the 13th year at their glistening stadium, Sports Authority Field at Mile High, the Broncos will perform before sellout crowds for the 44th consecutive season, the first 31 of which came at Mile High Stadium. The team has sold out 333 consecutive regular-season games and 350 consecutive contests including playoff games. Broncos fans have watched their team amass one of the NFL’s finest records since the club’s first winning season in 1973, enduring just seven losing seasons—tied for the second-fewest in the NFL. This season also marks Pat Bowlen’s 30th as Owner and Chief Executive Officer of the Broncos. During that time, Denver has enjoyed a virtually unmatched level of success in the context of the entire NFL and within the American Football Conference Western Division.
