CARSON, Calif., Sept. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- StubHub Center, home of the five-time MLS Cup champions the LA Galaxy, announced a new partnership with Mobilitie, the largest privately held wireless infrastructure provider in the United States. The multiyear partnership, brokered by AEG Global Partnerships, establishes Mobilitie as the exclusive wireless communication services and Distributed Antenna System (DAS) provider of the multiuse sports stadium and will ensure fans have great wireless connectivity to their mobile devices.
As part of the partnership, Mobilitie will design, install, and operate StubHub Center's new multicarrier DAS network, which is designed specifically to enhance the gameday experience, and increase wireless network capacity and connectivity for tens of thousands of soccer-loving fans. The new partnership combines AEG's portfolio and venue-management experience with Mobilitie's wireless network experience at large sporting and entertainment venues. StubHub Center's wireless network will be the most robust installation of its kind at an MLS stadium with a fiber-to-the-edge design and the ability to handle a record amount of capacity.
"Mobilitie understands the fan experience from a digital standpoint, and we could not be more proud to have such a trusted, topnotch partner overseeing our wireless connectivity needs," said Katie Pandolfo, general manager of StubHub Center. "Our goal was to offer fast, efficient and seamless connectivity, and Mobilitie's industry-leading wireless team will not only help us meet the demands of our fans, but will also enable us to provide state-of-the-art connectivity and outstanding live experiences at the same time."
With the new Mobilitie DAS network, StubHub Center will be able to offer improved fan experiences, complete with the rich, interactive mobile capabilities, real-time video streaming, location-based services, social media and other mobile applications, all delivered with seamless connectivity from start to finish. Passionate fans will be able to capture and share their favorite moments in-real time while staying perfectly connected throughout the game.
"MLS fans are devoted data users. They don't just watch the game, they're interacting with the world, checking stats, sending photos and posting to social media," said Christos Karmis, president of Mobilitie. "Together with StubHub Center, we are providing Galaxy fans one of the most connected and robust wireless networks at any sports and entertainment venue in the country."
The neutral DAS installation deployed by Mobilitie at StubHub Center includes a dense capacity configuration of more than 200 antennas connected by almost 8 miles of fiber throughout the venue to ensure the best wireless performance. With the robust antenna design layout and fiber connectivity to the edge, the system will also be upgradeable to 5G standards when available.
"Mobilitie's DAS network sets a benchmark for facility management, and we are proud to be partnering with a company that values innovation just as much as we do," said George Pappas, vice president, AEG Global Partnerships.
