Green Bay Packers: Building & Maintaining Wi-Fi in an NFL Stadium

With today’s constantly evolving demands, sports teams and their venues must be equipped with the tools to successfully meet fan expectations, support critical operations, and digitally transform their environments. For the Green Bay Packers, providing a safe, convenient, enhanced game day experience is a top priority.

Based in Green Bay, Wisconsin, the Green Bay Packers are an NFL team that play their home games at one of the longest continuously occupied stadiums in the league, the historic Lambeau Field.

In this Tech Talk with Kenny Ansel, Director of Information Technology at the Green Bay Packers, hear more on:

  • How the Green Bay Packers benefit from the results of the wireless network
  • Key considerations of providing Wi-Fi connectivity to guests
  • How Wi-Fi drives fan engagement and the guest experience
  • Challenges in deploying new wireless network architecture
  • Future network innovations to improve the greater Lambeau area

Lambeau Field is unique for its open-air concept, older design features, and large seating bowl, all of which pose a greater architectural challenge with deploying a Wi-Fi solution; it’s necessary to retain the classic look and feel that defines the stadium but also delivers upon the team’s specific business and technology goals. A customized network solution is necessary to ensure fans and staff have access to seamless, strong connectivity throughout the stadium. Now that Kenny and the Packers have transitioned to a next-generation Wi-Fi solution at Lambeau Field, it only creates more opportunities to deliver a connected, engaging experience to fans while equipping the business for tackling the key technology challenges ahead.
