ExteNet to deploy private wireless network at the AT&T Center
In January, ExteNet Systems had announced a partnership with SS&E to deliver a new 5G cellular solution to the AT&T Center
ExteNet Systems, a provider of LTE/5G and fiber neutral host communications infrastructure solutions, will deploy a private wireless network at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas, home of the San Antonio Spurs. The deployment is part of a partnership between ExteNet and Spurs Sports & Entertainment (SS&E).
“We are honored to work with Spurs Sports & Entertainment the San Antonio Spurs and their venue to create the high-level experience their fans expect and deserve,” said Rich Coyle, ExteNet’s CEO.
ExteNet Systems noted that private wireless and 5G will continue to play a significant role in sports and entertainment venues worldwide as interactive in-house experiences require networks to deliver more capacity, bandwidth, and lower latency. ExteNet said its private wireless network transforms venue connectivity and the fan experience by providing on-site experiences extending from Point of Sales (POS) to improved security and beyond.
The benefits of private wireless to Sports and Entertainment venues include entry ticketing and parking, digital signage, real-time fan applications such as venue maps, contactless concession stands, and geo-locators, interactive and personalized fan engagement, Mobile/POS and cashless transactions, safety, surveillance, critical staff communications, increased video experiences across the venue and real-time data analytics.
The SS&E’s private wireless network will be designed, built, monitored, and maintained utilizing ExteNet’s capital access to deliver a Network as a Service (NaaS) solution to clients. The NaaS provides venues with a secure, low-latency, and performance optimized network to support critical applications, ExteNet said.
