T-Mobile has announced its 5G coverage and capacity plans for the upcoming Super Bowl at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.

T-Mobile will amp peak download speeds to 1.2 Gbps, 10 times faster than before, and peak upload speeds to 200 Mbps. The company made permanent upgrades to Las Vegas during last year’s Formula 1 event in the city.

For the Super Bowl, which takes place on February 11, Allegiant Stadium will be fitted with 62 iDAS sectors, while seven oDAS sectors will service areas just outside of the venue. Additionally, mmWave enhancements have been made both inside and outside the stadium for fans on T-Mobile’s network.

The NHL’s New Jersey Devils and Prudential Center have announced a multi-year partnership to use Clover Sport technology at the arena on game days.

Clover Sport combines point-of-sale hardware and software with back-office management tools, and the deal is designed to enhance the fan experience and optimise food and beverage operations at Prudential Center.

The Devils and Prudential Center will leverage Clover Sport as the arena’s fully integrated commerce operating system. More than 300 Clover devices will be fitted at concession stands throughout the venue, providing cashless and touchless capabilities.

ANC, a provider of digital signage and visual display services, has been selected by the Milwaukee Brewers as the single-source solutions integrator for a new digital signage system at American Family Field.

As part of the deal, ANC will oversee the enhancement of the previous digital and static scoreboard, the installation of brand-new LED signage, and the integration of a new broadcast control room for the Major League Baseball team.

The project centres on a pair of new 8mm LED digital display boards in centre and right field. The new centre-field main display measures over 12,000 square feet and will be one of the largest scoreboards in MLB.

Back in the NFL, telco Verizon has enhanced its relationship with the Tennessee Titans by signing on as the first cornerstone partner of the team’s New Nissan Stadium.

The new eight-year agreement makes Verizon the exclusive wireless telecommunications partner of the New Nissan Stadium. Verizon will provide state-of-the-art technology and wireless solutions, keeping fans connected in the new building.
