TE Connectivity Boosts Cellular Service with DAS for NFL Championship Game

TE Connectivity (TE) has deployed its FlexWave Prism and FlexWave Spectrum distributed antenna systems (DAS) in preparation for the 49th NFL championship game on February 1 in Phoenix, Arizona.

At the University of Phoenix stadium, TE deployed FlexWave Spectrum DAS to provide 48 sectors of mobile coverage and capacity for a neutral host provider serving the nation’s four largest mobile operators at the stadium. The massive deployment includes 96 main hubs, 49 expansion hubs, and 225 remote antenna units to cover the stadium bowl, luxury boxes and service areas. The system supports various 700, 800, 850, 1900 and 2100 MHz LTE, CDMA, EVDO and UMTS services. In the Glendale area where the stadium is located, TE equipment is being used to link a base station hotel with DAS in the Renaissance Hotel and the Gila River Arena, making use of existing operator infrastructure to manage capacity spikes.

In downtown Phoenix, TE’s FlexWave Prism DAS has been deployed at the Hyatt Regency Hotel (headquarters for NFL executives in the month leading up to the game) and at CityScape, an outdoor visitor center. Elsewhere, TE’s FlexWave Spectrum DAS with the CPRI digital interface unit (CDIU) has been deployed at US Airways Arena, which will serve as the event’s media center. In addition, TE’s unique host-to-host technology has been deployed to link a base station hotel in downtown Phoenix with US Airways Arena, the Hyatt Regency, Chase Field and the Phoenix Convention Center. The host-to-host technology transports base station signals for miles over a digital fiber link between the base station hotel and the venues.

“TE is the vendor of choice at the world’s most important events and venues,” said Peter Wraight, president of TE’s Wireless business unit. “Our all-digital solutions deliver outstanding capacity and performance at events like this, where the network needs to be able to withstand significant capacity increases and maintain connectivity reliably.”
