U.S. wireless infrastructure provider Mobilitie is bringing 5G wireless to CURE Insurance Arena.
The 11,000 seat CURE Insurance Arena hosts concerts and sporting events and is the largest arena in central New Jersey. The Distributed Antenna System (DAS) installed by Mobilitie has a fiber and cable backbone of approximately 40,000 linear feet and is designed to easily accommodate future technology upgrades and spectrum additions. The Mobilitie DAS brings 5G connectivity to help fans share memorable experiences using the new high-speed network, the vendor said.
“We’re glad to be the trusted partner to bring the latest 5G technology to CURE Insurance Arena,” said Melissa Mullarkey, regional vice president at Mobilitie. “We are continuing to work alongside our venue partners to invest in 5G to help transform the live entertainment experience with cutting edge mobile networks.”
The CURE Insurance Arena is a 10,500-seat arena in Trenton, New Jersey. It hosts events including shows, sporting events and concerts.
Last month, Mobilitie said it is bringing 5G connectivity to Toyota Stadium, home of Major League Soccer club FC Dallas. The network will feature DAS and DRAN layers to provide high-speed coverage and capacity for all areas of the stadium including the stands, suites and concourse, as well as the tailgating area.
In a recent interview with In-Building Tech, Jason Caliento, EVP of network strategy at Mobilitie, said that the firm was working in 5G deployments at sports venues in preparation for future in-person events following the pandemic. “The company has a sizable portfolio of marquees sports and entertainment venues, and our teams are actively designing and deploying 5G across that entire portfolio in preparation for the in-person events that will come later in the year. There have been some really compelling advancements in what 5G can bring in terms of virtual reality and augmented reality, and we’re proud to be facilitating those user experiences.”
