The Miami Dolphins have struck an agreement with AT&T for new Wi-Fi and other mobile services, which have now been deployed at Sun Life Stadium to enhance the mobile experience for fans during games and events.
The additional network capacity and new services support call reliability and better network access so fans can benefit from near real-time stats, social networking, venue information, and more.
As a result of the agreement with AT&T, the 75,000+ seat Sun Life Stadium now has more than 1,100 Wi-Fi access points throughout the venue. New mapping strategies have led to a racetrack-like Wi-Fi deployment where access points are strategically placed under seats and snaked through railings to bring fans closer to a connection than before.
In addition, an AT&T Distributed Antenna System (DAS) at the stadium is providing service equivalent to 16 individual cells sites. That’s enough coverage to support the same mobile traffic as a town the size of Kendall or Miami Beach. The two complementing network systems will make Sun Life one of the most connected stadiums in the country.
Across Miami and Florida, AT&T’s 2013 investments have resulted in expansion and enhancement of their 4G LTE network, which provides super-fast speeds. AT&T 4G LTE is now available in Miami as well as Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Tallahassee, Pensacola, and more. Nationwide, more than 240 million Americans have access to AT&T 4G LTE service. By year-end 2013, AT&T expects to cover nearly 270 million people with its 4G LTE network.
Party on Dolphin fans.
