October 17, 2014

Exponential-e, the British Cloud and Network provider, has announced that it will be providing iSportconnect, the world’s largest network of sports business executives, with the infrastructure to deliver digital content across a growing number of media platforms.

iSportconnect will keep sport executives up to speed on the latest developments within the industry using Exponential-e’s 100Gig Ethernet Network and to deliver its services, which include an online TV channel, a market place for investors and a recruitment portal.

“Excited by real-time intensity, today’s sporting executives demand a high definition digital experience. One that extends beyond the stadium and provides a gateway for consuming real-time information on the latest developments within the sporting world across multiple channels,” commented Sree Varma, Founder and CEO of iSportconnect.

“Exponential-e understands the expectations of today’s hyper-connected sports professionals and provides us with a platform that is capable of keeping them engaged. Given the company’s strong heritage working with some of the UK’s most prestigious sports organisations including Fulham FC and the Lawn Tennis Association(LTA), we are delighted to be entering into a strategic partnership that makes Exponential-e our exclusive IT solutions provider.”

Crucially, Exponential-e’s uncontended, private and secure network is capable of handling large media files, ensuring that iSportconnect can provide members with access to dynamic content – such as audio and video – online.

The low latency, high-speed network provides a robust infrastructure designed to reduce any jittering when content is being streamed, regardless of what device is being used or whether it is being accessed at peak times.

As part of the solution, iSportconnect will be able to monitor which of its services are being used by members and control the bandwidth allocated to each application to maintain a consistent, high-quality user experience.

In addition, the Exponential-e Cloud-ready network delivers all services down a single piece of fibre so iSportconnect can simply scale additional services up or down to cope with peaks and troughs in demand.

“Since it’s inception in 2002 Exponential-e has been providing services to the sports industry, supporting stadium connectivity links, online betting networks and club or federation TV channels,” concludes Maria Cappella, Chief Operating Officer of Exponential-e.

“As a result, we are confident that iSportconnect is the ideal partner for us to collaboratively deliver exceptional high-speed communication to the sporting industry in this digital age. This exciting partnership agreement will enable us to provide a better service the UK’s and Europe’s sporting arena, with iSportconnect’s members, which include senior decision makers from all sporting clubs, now having access to Exponential-e’s unique services ”
