Pocono Raceway Utilizes Frontier Communication's VoIP Technology

By SIP Trunking Report Contributor

Pocono International Raceway, Inc recently unveiled a communications system, which will benefit employees, staff, race teams, media and fans. Pocono Raceway already has an advanced, high-tech racing surface located only 90 miles from New York and Philadelphia.

Pocono Raceway, in association with Frontier Communications, has developed a telecommunications system capable of adjusting to the existing and future development. The technical knowledge of the engineering and operations teams at Frontier has been leveraged by Pocono Raceway to develop a telecommunications system that will draw the attention of further entertainment prospects. Frontier, however, had to develop a system capable of completely incorporating different locations and end users, and also assisting the different communication needs due to the innovative design of the three-turn facility. Frontier was able to augment the capacity to a maximum of 1,400 users with the help of a Mitel 3300 VoIP system.

In a statement, Brandon Igdalsky, president and CEO, Pocono Raceway said, "We've made many enhancements to our facility over the years and the new communications system is another step in our plan to become a year-round entertainment venue. Communications are the life-blood of any business and we are excited to have Frontier Communications, an industry leader, as a partner in this exciting endeavor."

The latest flexible VoIP system eliminates the need for a totally refurbished platform for assisting growth. According to Michael Morton, GM for Frontier Communications, the organization is aware of Pocono Raceway’s current and future requirements for tackling communications for concerts, trade shows and other entertainment and raceway events.

Morton said, "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. We're backed by the resources of a Fortune 500 company but we are based locally. Frontier's employees live in the markets we serve, so we understand the needs of customers and we work toward a mutual goal of creating vibrant communities"
