IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MatSing, the pioneer of high-capacity lens antennas, today outlined its strategy for adding C-Band in stadiums and arenas. As venues and teams focus on delivering superior 5G mobile experience, C-Band offers the optimal balance of network capacity and coverage to ensure fans stay connected during games and events. MatSing has streamlined the process keeping the customer and venue in mind.
“As venues look to upgrade to 5G, our patented lens antennas provide a rapid, simplified, and cost-effective transition to C-Band,” explained MatSing CEO Bo Larsson. “Venues are increasingly choosing to deploy MatSing’s high-capacity lens antenna over other antenna types, including traditional and under-the-seat antennas. Providing industry-leading capacity with the fewest antenna locations, our lens antennas are continually outperforming other antenna types. Supporting multiple frequencies and bands, while delivering the highest levels of sectorization, we are now elevating the fan’s connected experience by adding C-Band on the venue’s mobility network.”
Game-day typically provides a unique challenge of high concentration of people downloading and sharing high-bandwidth videos and pictures. This leads to the performance of the mobile network taking centerstage. C-Band, the newly auctioned 3.7GHz-3.9GHz spectrum, is now being actively deployed outdoors and indoors, including high-capacity stadiums and arenas. With approximately 100 sports & entertainment venues leveraging MatSing lens antenna to deliver mobile connectivity today, and several venues in various stages of planning and deployment, the transition to C-Band will be quicker, smoother, and cheaper for MatSing customers.
Founded in 2005, MatSing has developed and patented new meta-materials to create the world’s first lightweight and multibeam Lens Antennas. This new approach for high-performance, high-capacity antenna design is more efficient and offers key advantages over traditional antennas, the ability to provide broadband coverage, emit and maintain multiple beams, and to do so cleanly with minimal RF interference. Nationwide coverage isn’t the only critical challenge facing telecoms companies, and MatSing’s Lens antenna solution is ideal to meet the capacity demands at outdoor events, stadiums and macro uses in cities, suburbs and rural areas. Each antenna can provide multiple independent sectors, up to 48, providing the highest capacity across multiple bands with the fewest antennas possible. MatSing lens technology is the perfect fit for 4G LTE and 5G mobile broadband coverage, and it is the most cost-effective network densification tool in the industry.
