Pervasive Wi-Fi Delivers Unique Game-Day Experience for Patriots Fans

Patriots-Huddle

Providing stadium-wide, high-density Wi-Fi for tens of thousands of game-day fans.

To enhance the in-person, game-day experience, the New England Patriots looked to offer high-speed wireless data service inside Gillette Stadium with a superior fan experience as a top priority. The stadium network infrastructure needed a very stable, scalable solution that could be easily and centrally managed by their existing IT staff, particularly on game day.

The distributed antenna systems from cellular data carriers that had been pumping cellular-network signals into the stands were subject to intense demand just for text messages and photos. With a well-designed system for determining wireless connection strength and quality down to a seat-by-seat level, Gillette Stadium is now equipped with stadium-wide Wi-Fi that enables fans to experience a new and heightened level of social and multimedia engagement.
