Pocono Raceway collaborates with Frontier to enhance communications

Dec 13, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Frontier Communications Corporation, a telecommunications provider, has announced that Pocono International Raceway, Inc., a superspeedway located in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, has partnered with Frontier to enlist the expertise of its engineering and operations teams to design a telecommunications system that would accommodate current and future growth and also help attract other entertainment opportunities.

Pocono has recently added another milestone -a communications system to benefit employees, staff, race teams, media and fans. Because of the design of the three-turn facility, however, Frontier had to create a system that would fully integrate different locations and end users and support their various communications requirements. Frontier's solution was a Mitel 3300 VoIP system, allowing increased capacity up to 1,400 users.

The versatility of the new VoIP system allows it to support growth without requiring a completely revamped platform. With more than 20 years of serving as the communications partner for Pocono Raceway, the Frontier team delivered not only a solution, it also delivered a promise of continued personalized service and responsiveness.

"We appreciated what Pocono Raceway needs now as well as what it might need in the future to address communications for concerts, trade shows and other entertainment and raceway events," said Michael Morton, general manager, Frontier Communications.

"The Mitel solution integrates rich telephony features with advanced applications that are accessible via desktop devices and managed over a web-based embedded system. The system is highly scalable, so it can grow as Pocono Raceway grows. It's an efficient and cost-effective system since 'moves, adds and changes' are completed over the web, a huge benefit to the raceway," Morton added.
