Mobilitie, the largest privately-held wireless infrastructure firm in the nation, is deploying a 5G network at West End Stadium, the future home to FC Cincinnati. The stadium is expected to officially open in March 2021 and will host 26,000 fans.
Mobilitie is deploying a fiber-rich network of more than 60,000 linear feet of fiber. With more than 200 antennas, including 8 multi-beam antennas, the network will provide attendees with the fastest possible 5G connection throughput speeds with the lowest latency or data lags. The DAS network will provide fans with an unparalleled 5G experience.
“The fans are our number-one priority at West End and a strong, reliable network is imperative to their overall experience,” said Jeff Berding, President of FC Cincinnati. “A reliable partner like Mobilitie made for an easy decision as we’re bringing connectivity to the stadium. We’re looking forward to deploying a 5G network that’s championship-worthy.”
As the newest MLS venue, Mobilitie will ensure that each fan throughout West End Stadium—from the luxury suites to the sidelines—experiences the best wireless connectivity possible. Mobilitie’s impressive, state-of-the-art DAS network will keep all FC Cincinnati fans connected in faster ways than ever.
“We’re committed to bringing FC Cincinnati fans the best connectivity possible,” said Katherine Krohn, Vice President of Wireless Solutions at Mobilitie. “Our 5G DAS network will make it possible for fans to share pictures and videos even after the 90th minute. We’re looking forward to delivering West End Stadium with a next-generation wireless network.”
West End Stadium is the latest sports venue Mobilitie has invested in to provide the capabilities for 5G deployment and future technologies. In the past two months, Mobilitie has announced projects and upgrades with Target Center in Minneapolis, Tropicana Field in Tampa Bay, T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and Spectrum Center in Charlotte.
