Newcastle Jockey Club partners with OAS


Now in operation for over 100 years, the Newcastle Racecourse is the largest and premiere provincial Race club in NSW. 41 race meetings are held annually, including the Spring Carnival, the Autumn Carnival and the $1m Hunter Race Day.

NJC have partnered with Minder Cloud Services to take over support of the existing IT network and implement a solution that created secure network integrity for their business without disruptions to their staff and daily operations.

With over 8 different function rooms, two levels of public bars and a member’s bar and restaurant, NJC’s IT challenge lay in linking all existing buildings and ensuring a secure and reliable connection across the entire facility.

After inspecting the premises, our team determined the spots where connectivity was below minimum standard and installed new network switches throughout the racecourse to make sure connectivity was stable across all buildings. Alongside the secure Minder Network, we also rolled out Cisco’s Security Software to ensure NJC’s staff were safe against potential cyber security threats, whether working remotely from home or in the office. This included:

- Cisco Email Security – a defense against phishing, business email compromise, ransomware and data loss prevention

- Cisco DUO Multi Factor Authentication – this protects all applications by using a second source of validation, like a phone or token to verify a user’s identity

- Cisco Umbrella Insights – a software to protect websites from potential malware

The Minder Team is consolidating and fixing cabling issues in NJC’s on premise server racks, as well as various patch panels throughout the racecourse.

The upgrade for NJC means improved network service and less disruptions for their Point of Sale systems and overall daily operations.
