Chicago’s Soldier Field Launches Enhanced Distributed Antenna System Network

SMG, the world leader in venue management, today announced the launch of a new neutral-host Distributed Antenna System (DAS) at Chicago’s Soldier Field, home of Chicago’s professional football team, concerts, international soccer games and hundreds of other events annually. The state-of-the-art DAS network will increase wireless capacity for all fans in the 63,000-seat stadium, enhancing their game day experience.

The upgraded Soldier Field network – installed, managed and operated by Boingo and AT&T in partnership with SMG – will deliver comprehensive wireless coverage to fans, ensuring they are able to stay connected via their mobile devices during the height of a game or concert.

A DAS installation consists of multiple strategically-placed antennas that distribute wireless network coverage throughout Soldier Field, providing for more efficient management of wireless capacity in heavily-trafficked areas. AT&T and Boingo’s sophisticated neutral DAS installation is configured to deliver ubiquitous coverage and consistent performance throughout the stadium complex and will allow multiple wireless carriers to maximize the game experience for their customers.

“With the addition of the neutral-host DAS network, we believe Soldier Field now offers one of the most advanced stadium networks in the nation, making it a benchmark for wireless services at stadiums across the country,” said Luca Serra, director of sponsorships and media for SMG at Soldier Field. “With the new DAS installation, SMG is ensuring that fans are able to share their favorite game moments with friends and family.”

The enhanced DAS network at Soldier Field is now available to fans. Boingo, SMG, AT&T and other carrier partners will continue to collaborate on upgrades to ensure optimal network performance. Additionally, Boingo operates the Wi-Fi network at the stadium, which was among the first in an NFL stadium when it was launched in 2010.

“Boingo brings more than a decade of experience in designing, building and managing combined DAS and Wi-Fi networks to Soldier Field. We’re proud to expand our relationship with SMG, and to help the SMG team realize their vision of providing a superior connectivity experience to each and every fan in the stands,” said Doug Lodder, vice president of DAS business development for Boingo Wireless. “Built in collaboration with SMG and AT&T, the new DAS network provides additional capacity that will enable SMG to provide new location-based services and connected experiences to fans, and ensure the best possible mobile game day for spectators.”
