The Singapore Turf Club was founded in 1842 as the Singapore Sporting Club to operate the Serangoon Road Race Course at Farrer Park. It is today the oldest existing and only horse-racing club in Singapore and one of the premier racecourses in the world. The Singapore Turf Club is the only authorized operator of horse racing, and totalisator (horse betting) services in Singapore.


Currently, STC ran an analog system for its communication department. With the growing demands in communication, STC realized the inferiority of analog system in communication and data service. Signal coverage is very limited and talking group is not insufficient for increasing users. Stand-by & Talk-time is not ideal and the out dated terminal is very heavy.
