Lyric Opera of Chicago Revamps Wireless Solution to Usher in New Era of Opera Experience

Lyric Opera of Chicago is one of the world's foremost opera companies, renowned internationally for its artistic excellence. Each season, audiences gather to enjoy highly-acclaimed performers in visually spectacular productions. When Lyric Opera began planning its highly-anticipated triennial Wine Auction, organizers requested live and silent bidding via smartphone application. IT leadership knew they needed an upgraded wireless infrastructure to enable uninterrupted bidding activity. Seeking a holistic solution that would ensure a flawless Wire Auction and meet broader technology needs, Lyric Opera turned to Burwood Group to update its wireless network and expand coverage across its seven-floor facility.

As developer of the Barclays Center, the 675,000-square-foot, 18,000-seat sports and entertainment venue that is home to the Brooklyn Nets basketball team, Forest City Ratner Companies envisioned a highly connected, state-of-the-art, $485 million sports arena. To execute its ambitions concept, Forest City Ratner needed a chief technology architect that could create and implement a unified technology vision. Forest City Ratner turned to Burwood Group for its expertise in technology strategy and project leadership, in an early instance of engaging a technology firm to serve as owner’s representative on a major construction project.

"I think of Burwood as my parachute, my life raft. When I can't come up with a solution to a problem, I know Burwood can."
