New England Patriots’ Gillette Stadium doubled the number of fan-facing Wi-Fi access points during the off season.
Fred Kirsch, publisher & vice president of content at Kraft Sports Productions, said improvements were made to the system which was first installed in 2012.
“The [Wi-Fi] overall technology has changed, so we can really improve it now,” said Kirsch, according to the MobileSportsReport website. “All over the stadium, we have better coverage.”
Kirsch said the arena now has more than more than 1,000 access points, with most of the new devices deployed under seats in the bowl seating areas. Most of the points were installed in concrete, although a “cable-and-tray system” was used in sections made of granite.
