New report: Coors Field gets Wi-Fi 6 upgrade ahead of All-Star Game

Stadium Tech Report is pleased to announce our Summer 2021 issue, which includes an in-depth profile of the new Wi-Fi 6 network upgrade at the Colorado Rockies’ Coors Field, which will host the Major League Baseball All-Star Game this July. Planned ahead of the pandemic, the Coors Field network upgrade includes new equipment from Cisco and some innovative design and deployment tactics from integrator AmpThink, the Colorado Rockies and MLB. With a full house expected for the July 12-13 events, Coors Field is ready to go from a Wi-Fi connectivity standpoint, including coverage at the new McGregor Square area adjacent to the ballpark.

We also have a profile of a new esports facility deployment at the University of Arizona, done by a new firm called 1337 Facilities, which is led by stadium technology veteran Bob Jordan. One more story looks into the possibilities presented by smart poles, which can bring connectivity and other technology features to parking lots. Take a read and tell us what you think!

New Report: FC Cincinnati’s West End Stadium using technology to support safer, easier fan experience

Stadium Tech Report is pleased to announce our Spring 2021 issue, with a profile of the technology being deployed at FC Cincinnati’s new West End Stadium. With an eye toward making the fan experience better and safer, the Atomic Data-led deployment of Wi-Fi, entry and concessions technologies provides a robust technology infrastructure. Read our lead profile for all the details!

Our latest issue also has some forward-thinking analysis, including Bill Anderson’s essay on why Frequency Neutral Networks are the “magic” that will provide the kind of wireless connectivity users are seeking. Paul Kapustka weighs in on why concessions are going all-digital and cashless, and why that’s a good thing for everyone involved.

We are also featuring our second interview in our “Design Vision” series, this time with Kevin Devore of ME Engineers. We also have a recap of the wireless usage from Super Bowl LV in Tampa, where the reduced-size crowd still consumed data at a rate equal to past “big games.”

New Report: AT&T Stadium rewrites the DAS playbook

Stadium Tech Report is pleased to announce our Winter 2021 issue, with an in-depth profile of the new, groundbreaking distributed antenna system (DAS) recently installed at AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys. With its super-dense deployment of approximately 670 network zones and use of cutting-edge MatSing Lens antennas, the new cellular network is designed to handle the biggest demands from the largest crowds at what is probably the busiest football-sized arena anywhere.

We are also debuting some of our new, expanded areas of content coverage, with an in-depth look at how a converged compute infrastructure can help venues recover leaseable space and reduce operating expenses. Also look for our inaugural “Design Vision” interview, where we talk to Chris Williams, president of WJHW, to get his insights on stadium design and on two of his company’s recent projects, SoFi Stadium and Allegiant Stadium.
