To show the power of connectivity, Vodafone gave a young tennis player, Frankie, a VIP trip to Wimbledon in the All-Electric Jaguar I-PACE.
Vodafone, Wimbledon’s Official Connectivity Partner and Jaguar, the Official Car of The Championships, are using Vodafone Smart Hubs in the event’s vehicle fleet to provide a superior in-car connectivity experience.
The fleet, which includes the All-Electric Jaguar I-PACE, is used for transporting dignitaries and players around Wimbledon and will be connected to WiFi via a Smart Hub powered by Vodafone’s reliable award-winning network*. This will give VIPs fast, reliable enterprise-grade WiFi connectivity on the move regardless of what network they are with.
180 Vodafone Smart Hubs have been installed in the Official Cars of The Championships, so tennis pros will be able to make the most of staying connected .
To show the power of connectivity, Vodafone gave a young tennis player, Frankie, a VIP trip to Wimbledon in the All-Electric Jaguar I-PACE. During the car journey, the young tennis player received a surprise video call from Tim Henman, Vodafone’s Wimbledon Ambassador, using the Smart Hub technology. Frankie then arrived at the All England Club and was given a VIP tour around Wimbledon by Tim Henman in person.
The Vodafone Smart Hub turns a vehicle into a WiFi hotspot, powered from the ignition or optional battery unit, and a roof-mounted antenna boosts the WiFi signal up to a 100-metre radius.
Customers can gain real-time GPS location and analytics, while passengers can send, receive, and access critical information on the go with data allowances of up to 1 terabyte – enough to browse the web for more than 20,000 hours or watch 300 hours of high-definition video.
Smart Hubs are typically used in construction, maintenance and utilities where employees are often in remote locations where they need to stream or download large files.
