With SoFi stadium and Austin FC stadium the latest venues to be outfitted with Wifi 6 infrastructure, I'm still amazed that some current venues are refreshing current Wifi infrastructure with 802.1ac also known as...Wifi 5. The thought process being that there is a lack of devices that can currently take advantage of Wifi 6 and the cost will be too prohibitive upfront. This short term thinking will cost a lot more in the end when you aren't able to compliment 5G or use any of the features that Wifi6/5G brings (Speed and capacity being the 2 keys). Smart Venues and IOT initiatives will only work in a WIFI/5G environment and must be part of any long term strategy in order for tech to be a value driver in the organization. Otherwise, you end up with something that the equivalent of using a flip phone in a smartphone world.
Build a solid forward looking, ROI focused tech strategy on the technology's that will grow your organization in the next 3-5 years.
