DAS and the Superbowl

July 19th, 2018

We predict that on Sunday February 5, 2012 fans at Lucas Oil Stadium will be able to watch the Superbowl and share the experience with friends on Facebook and other social media without a problem, thanks to their new DAS system.

Watch this video to see Eric Mann, Network Engineering Director, Verizon Wireless gives an outside and inside tour of Lucas Oil Stadium and the infrastructure Verizon Wireless has put in place to support voice and data traffic for Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis.

DAS eliminates need for temporary assets – COWs – cell on wheels – though Verizon is apparently bringing in 3 anyway.

The DAS system is permanent so it will be there to support future events at the same facility. With the DAS equipment they have installed in the Lucas Oil Stadium, there are over 400 DAS antennnas installed all throughout the stadium to provide optimal coverage everywhere.

GottabeMobile has written a great post explaining what has been done.

Look forward to hearing the results!
