Boingo Wireless (NASDAQ: WIFI), announced it’s been selected by San Diego State University (SDSU) to design, build, operate and maintain a 5G-ready, neutral host cellular DAS network for the university’s new multi-use Aztec Stadium, which is expected to be completed for the 2022 NCAA football season.
Boingo’s neutral host wireless network will be designed for multi-carrier 5G and LTE coverage, including millimeter wave (mmWave), a high frequency, high bandwidth 5G technology that can quickly transmit large amounts of data, such as augmented reality, virtual reality and 4K streaming. The network will be high-density to deliver seamless connectivity to guests, staff and athletes across the 35,000-capacity space.
Aztec Stadium is part of a $3.5 billion SDSU campus expansion project in the Mission Valley neighborhood of San Diego. Boingo will deploy service throughout Aztec Stadium, including bowl seating, the playing field, concourses, entry gates, press box, locker rooms, media center, administrative offices and the surrounding parking lots.
“The new Aztec Stadium will be a world-class sports and entertainment venue with world-class connectivity built for the 5G era,” said Boingo CEO Mike Finley. “We’re proud to enable the stadium’s tech-forward initiatives to keep guests connected—whether live-streaming kickoff, engaging on the Aztecs mobile app or using a mobile ticket.”
