US wireless infrastructure firm Mobilitie has expanded its relationship with Dignity Health Sports Park, home of Major League Soccer team LA Galaxy, by launching a private LTE network using the latest 3.5GHz Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS).
Mobilitie said the newly-expanded wireless system will provide a “dependable, fast and secure network” that can support a range of new technologies, as well as applications like remote parking lot surveillance, mobile ticket scanning, mobile media and mobile point of sale.
Each of the applications will run on a low-latency, secure and private network that includes Mobile Edge Computing services. Mobilitie currently operates a state-of-the-art distributed antenna system, which includes almost 300 remotes to ensure instant wireless connectivity throughout Dignity Health Sports Park.
Katie Pandolfo, general manager at Dignity Health Sports Park, said: “Mobilitie is an industry leader committed to technological advances and innovation. We are pleased to once again partner with the team at Mobilitie to roll out the latest wireless technology at one of our premier AEG venues.
“The expanded private network at Dignity Health Sports Park will ultimately enhance the operational technology and help ensure all of our new touchless enhancements, security measures and digital media have the secure connection to work seamlessly as we welcome fans back to our stadium.”
Christos Karmis, chief executive at Mobilitie, added: “Our CBRS and private network solutions are designed to ensure venue operators and fans have a secure and dependable wireless connection, helping to support critical business operations. AEG is a clear industry leader in sports and entertainment, and we are thrilled to continue our work together by deploying this latest technology with them.”
Dignity Sports Health Park and the Galaxy are owned and operated by AEG. The new deal between Mobilitie and the stadium was brokered by AEG Global Partnerships.
As well as hosting LA Galaxy games, Dignity Health Sports Park stages college sports events across its 125-acre complex. It will also serve as a host venue during Los Angeles’ staging of the 2028 summer Olympic Games.
Mobilitie first partnered with the venue back in 2017, when it was known as StubHub Center.
