Seattle Seahawks Achieve Operational Freedom with Cloud-Managed Wi-Fi

Lumen Field is a world-class football/soccer stadium and exhibition center, home to the Seattle Seahawks. The 325,000 sq. ft. complex seats 70,000+ and hosts a wide variety and volume of events each year from trade shows, corporate events, concerts, and more, making it one of the busiest venues in the region. In 2014, the Seahawks made significant enhancements to the stadium's wireless network to provide fans with free, open access Wi-Fi. Almost 10 years later, Lumen Field continues to deliver an exceptional digital experience to fans, guests, and staff.

  • Scalable network to meet digital needs anywhere within the stadium without sacrificing connectivity
  • Support for growing number of devices and bandwidth hungry applications and services
  • Comprehensive analytics to support sport and business side of operations
"I was an early adopter of Extreme. What I like most about my ten-year relationship is that it's the same folks I've been working with for ten years. Unlike a lot of vendors, I've had a lot of consistency working with the management staff, all the way up to the CEO."
