Communications worthy of a Gold Cup are deployed at the Cheltenham Festival


Roadphone NRB are once again delighted to provide two-way radios for this week’s Cheltenham Festival.

With over 550 radios deployed for various different user groups across the site, our on-site engineering team needed to ensure that our systems kept running smoothly throughout the build-up, live and breakdown phases of the event.

Our existing repeater network at Cheltenham Racecourse, which is used to support the site’s other events throughout the year, was expanded to provide extra call capacity for the Cheltenham Festival. Additionally, desktop mobiles with our Admatics Cordless Headsets were used in the Control room to ensure event control staff remained in constant communication with their colleagues across the racecourse.

Our industry-leading asset tracking system, Checkpoint Charlie®, was operated by our on-site engineers to ensure that we knew who was responsible for each radio, earpiece and battery. Each piece of equipment is identified by a unique serial number, and a photograph of the user is taken to ensure ultimate traceability if items are not returned after the event.

We look forward to once again supporting the Jockey Club at the Randox Health Grand National, to be held at Aintree Racecourse in April.
