Designing Wireless Networks for Stadiums:

Overcoming Capacity, Architecture, and Practical Challenges

Featuring Special Guest: STF Gruppe

Designing and deploying stadium wireless networks is always a hot topic, especially now, with major sports events like the UEFA European Football Championship and the Olympic Games approaching this summer. Stadiums must ensure optimal network performance to support large crowds at the venue and all deployed systems relying on the network. The key to achieving this? Top-notch network design!

However, designing wireless networks for stadiums can be highly complex, presenting numerous challenges due to venue sizes, capacity requirements, architectural anomalies, and other considerations.

Watch this exclusive webinar with special guest STF Gruppe to explore strategies for overcoming these challenges and designing the highest-quality stadium networks effectively!

Here’s a glimpse of what’s covered in the webinar:

  • Key challenges when designing wireless networks for stadiums
  • Evaluating stadium network capacity through SNR and Radio Conditions
  • Understanding actual EMF visualizations for bowl antennas
  • Overcoming architectural complexities in wireless network design
  • Impact of spectator volume and traffic profiles on end-user performance
  • Passive DAS interconnection scenarios for upgrading from LTE to 5G
  • Integration of arena with outdoor network using iBwave Reach
