The tech behind the Premier League
A host of tech is backing the 20 Premier League teams, helping them improve their play, streamline ticketing and more.
The tech: The JJB Stadium has conference and function rooms fitted with AV and telecom facilities. It has also implanted a paperless ticketing system with Fortress to develop membership and loyalty.
West Ham United
The tech: The current setup involves Nortel Business Communications Manager at the club's training ground as well as ISDN-based media communication facilities. The club is looking at an IP-based unified communications setup in the coming months.
The club is making an effort to invest in virtualisation for green IT and efficiency savings. Servers and desktops are being virtualised using VMware, leading to cost savings, cooling and savings in power consumption.
They've also got a fairly new stadium in Eastlands, which was built to host the 2002 Commonwealth Games and replaced their old Maine Road stadium.
The tech: With the amount of money Man City have got to spend, there may well be some big investment in IT for the future, but for now they are installing Nortel/BT IP-telephony systems and also trialling VMWare virtualisation technology in-house.
The tech: Following Arsenal's successful move to Emirates, their fierce rivals are now planning to increase the capacity of White Hart Lane stadium to 60,000.
