During the Indianapolis 500, the largest single-day sporting event on the planet, Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS) staff rely on radios to coordinate every aspect of their work, including stage setup, merchandise sales, fire and rescue, security, safety patrols and housekeeping. But for more than a decade, the radio system failed to deliver on race day. Due to significant interference, some parts of the facility became unreachable. The radio vendor for IMS said the problem simply couldn’t be solved.
United Rentals had a breakthrough idea: Move the radio equipment away from the central pagoda, and all the nearby antennae, to the relatively remote Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum. It used service monitors to understand the different frequencies operating in different parts of the venue, then brought in a fully digital trunking system along with radios. To ensure functionality on race day, it tested the system during smaller events.
On race day, the communications system performed flawlessly. IMS’s logistics manager was able to communicate via radio with operations staff members he couldn’t reach in previous years. Clear communication at the push of a button improved his ability to keep track of people and gear. “The positive feedback has been overwhelming,” he noted.
A large refinery shutdown is always a complex undertaking. One global Canadian energy company postponed its planned 2020 shutdown due to COVID-19, causing the scope of its 2021 shutdown to grow substantially. As a result, the project needed to be as efficient and cost-effective as possible.
