HICKORY, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--When fans converge on the Citi Field ballpark in New York today, they’ll be sharing their excitement with photos, videos and texts to friends and families, all through a dedicated distributed antenna system (DAS) installed at the stadium to provide robust wireless coverage and capacity to thousands of users at once.
Capacity crowds will be the norm at Citi Field during the fall baseball classic—and cellular connectivity will be an integral part of the experience—with all of the major North American wireless service providers supporting subscribers through the CommScope FlexWave® Prism and InterReach® Fusion system.
The DAS deployment at Citi Field provides 850 MHz, 1900 MHz, AWS, and 700 MHz frequencies to deliver 3G and 4G mobile services for fans at the 41,000-seat stadium. The deployment covers the stadium seating areas, luxury boxes, walkways and parking areas at the ballpark in Queens.
FlexWave Prism features modular, high-power remote units to deliver the performance and frequency bands needed in each location. The InterReach Fusion system is a low-power solution that delivers strategic and pin-point services to interior portions of the stadium.
“Fans and media expect seamless cellular coverage at major sporting events, and DAS systems deliver that,” said Mike Shumate, vice president, Distributed Coverage and Capacity Solutions, CommScope. “Our FlexWave Prism and InterReach Fusion digital DAS products are powerful yet cost-effective solutions for the mobile coverage and capacity challenges at crowded venues like Citi Field. We are proud that Citi Field is part of a long list of major stadiums around the world where our DAS solutions support capacity crowds with strong and pervasive mobile services.”
