Wi-Fi Solution to meet the needs of sporting events

Wi-Fi Solution to meet the needs of sporting events
May 9, 2013

A new Wi-Fi solution for sporting events is designed to meet the needs of large crowds of passionate fans, as well as handle all of the traditional back office and operational needs (suxh as ticketing, point-of-sale and press boxservices) unique to sports and entertainment environments.

By enhancing the coverage and capacity of traditional Wi-Fi technologies, Ruckus Wireless Soluton's stadium wireless provides an optimal environment for fans to access an increased array of data applications with all types of mobile devices in the venue.

Fans expect their mobile experience to be as good as - if not better than - their experience on the way to and from the event. There is an increasing need for stadiums and arenas to provide the seamless and reliable connectivity necessary to address these needs and the emerging business opportunities associated with event and venue specific applications.

In most sports and entertainment venues today, existing wireless and cellular technologies (for example, 3G/ 4G) are not optimised for the reliable delivery of these services to such a highly concentrated group of users, leaving tens of thousands of fans with limited ability to make phone calls, send text messages, share video, and access mobile data applications. As a result, the need to create a seamless and uninterrupted connected stadium Wi-Fi experience for fans has become one of the primary focuses for industry executives.

Ruckus has long been a leader in high-density Wi-Fi deployments. The cornerstone of Ruckus' offering is the BeamFlex adaptive antenna technology which can focus RF energy at the user to increase gain and not at surrounding APs which will see this as interference. We are continuing to raise the bar in high-density networking with the announcement of the ZoneFlex 7782-N Access Point. It features an integrated 30° narrow beam antenna that operates in the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands. By integrating the antenna into the AP, the ZoneFlex 7782-N provides a very minimal form factor which is essential in many deployments.

This unique solution can be deployed in a matter of weeks, which means that you can get up and running and receiving a revenue stream within no time at all.
