  16. 16. Development of a telecoms strategy ● A “Telecoms Strategy” is key to meet the venues/stadiums requirements ● An independent advisor can represent the venue/stadium throughout the project ● This “honest broker” can ensure that: ● the fans needs are taken into consideration from the outset via the venue owner ● the right solution is chosen (e.g. DAS, Small Cells or BBU/RRU approach) ● the performance requirements are met ● it is realised within the projects economic restrictions (Capex & Opex) ● a suitable and future proof infrastructure is deployed 15 January 2018 Confidential & © Real Wireless Ltd. 2017.

  17. 17. Conclusions ● Each stadium is unique ● There is no single best technical solution ● Who pays? ● Ultimately the venue (and/or MNO) ● Focus on benefits, not ROI ● Ensure that the infrastructure is right Consider a “Telecoms Strategy” 15 January 2018 Confidential & © Real Wireless Ltd. 2017.
