Alpha Wireless, a global leader in antenna solutions, today announced that a mobile network operator (MNO) has deployed the Alpha Wireless AW3873 antenna solution to enable seamless 5G service delivery throughout a large sports stadium.

Connectivity is essential to the ultimate fan experience, whether it’s via social media, communicating with friends, sharing video or immersive augmented reality. To realize this experience, 5G radio access network (RAN) infrastructure was deployed throughout the stands and concourse areas of the stadium. In need of a specialized antenna solution capable of providing ubiquitous coverage with optimized performance, the MNO turned to Alpha Wireless.

Alpha Wireless developed the versatile AW3873 solution, a high-capacity 5G stadium antenna that delivers maximum capacity in each seating section. Alpha Wireless stadium antennas use a unique pattern profile and cell sectorization technology to meet demanding density requirements without creating interference between cells.In addition to the 5G network upgrade, existing 4G coverage was also enhanced to provide improved overall quality of service. The AW3873 antenna allows for frequency reuse with multiple channels supporting both 4G and 5G networks, enabling an optimized, high-capacity stadium environment to allow sports fans to scroll social media and stream video for an immersive experience.
