The University Of Arizona Selects Boingo Wireless As First Distributed Antenna System (DAS) Partner

Boingo Wireless (NASDAQ:WIFI), the leading DAS and Wi-Fi provider that serves consumers, carriers and advertisers worldwide, announced today that the University of Arizona has selected the company to design, build and manage the University’s first Distributed Antenna System (DAS), which will provide improved voice and data coverage and capacity for Wildcat fans, students and faculty.

The first phase of the Boingo DAS network deployment will deliver comprehensive cellular coverage throughout the 56,000-seat Arizona Stadium, including all fan areas and the Steward Observatory Mirror Laboratory, as well as the nearby student residence halls.

Boingo’s approach to the neutral host, multi-carrier DAS network will ensure network availability to all wireless carriers without bias, at no cost to the university. The Boingo DAS network is scheduled to launch in fall 2013, during the Wildcat football season.

“We are excited for what the DAS will do to enhance the game day experience for our fans. It’s important to us that we evolve and improve, and the DAS helps us to keep pace with the technology needs of our customers,” said Greg Byrne, University of Arizona Vice President for Athletics.

“Boingo has a great track record of designing and maintaining cellular DAS systems for both public and private service use in high-density locations. Boingo’s new DAS network will provide enhanced public safety and spectator connectivity, allowing fans to enjoy a safe and connected Game Day experience,” said Matt George, University of Arizona’s Assistant Athletic Director, Video and Information Technology. “Our collaboration with Boingo will also lay the foundation for a multi-phase, expanded cellular installation that will strengthen and improve the campus network for years to come.”

“The University of Arizona understands that data demand is set to exponentially increase in the coming years, and has ambitious plans to greatly enhance campus cellular capacity and coverage. We bring more than a decade of experience in developing multi-purpose, flexible DAS solutions to the UA’s first DAS project, and are building a network that will scale with the University’s connectivity needs,” said Doug Lodder, vice president of business development for Boingo Wireless. “We look forward to helping the University realize its vision of an advanced, campus-wide cellular network that anticipates the future connectivity demands of fans, students and faculty.”
