Network Innovations Netherlands is supplying connectivity throughout the 2021 Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup series to keep racers and crews connected as they compete throughout Europe's classic Grand Prix circuits. By providing a hybrid connectivity solution that combines LTE and satellite coverage, Red Bull Rookie racers and crews have a resilient, mission critical network connection to power their communications.

The series kicked off in Portimao, Portugal, sweeping over to Jerez, Spain, then Mugello, Italy, and then Germany's Sachsenring Circuit, with wheel to wheel action at every riveting race. The Rookies Cup will continue to Austria and end in Spain’s Motorland Aragon.

At each event throughout the series, pop-up energy stations are erected for crews and racers to recharge their mental and physical batteries. These energy stations are spaces to relax, eat, and work online.

Data connectivity to update social media, view race performance playbacks, cruise the internet, stay in touch with family and friends or send digital communications is supplied by Network Innovations. Our NI Netherlands team also remotely controls and monitors connectivity performance to ensure bandwidth speeds are racing alongside demands.

Whenever huge crowds gather at large scale events, think concerts, sporting events, political rallies, music festivals and the like, demand for connectivity follows suit. This increased demand for connectivity creates network congestion with everyone trying to share on social that - yeah, they’re present in real life at the hottest event.

Most people have experienced limited bandwidth due to network congestion. Think about trying to post a pic on Instagram amidst a crowd and how it takes forever for it to publish! Without a high-end connectivity solution, event hosts and attendees would be without internet access precisely because of network congestion.

In addition, because the Rookies Cup travels through Europe’s Grand Prix circuit – arranging internet service with various providers at each racetrack would be a logistical nightmare. Not to mention, the add-on service costs these providers would charge to supply additional bandwidth.

As a Red Bull Moto GP Rookies cup sponsor, Network Innovations supplies guaranteed, always-available connectivity via one provider. Our solutions travel alongside the racers and crews as they move venues and ensure 99.99% network availability for crew welfare, marketing and social media, and general day to day business communications.
