CLAREMONT, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Together, CommScope (NASDAQ: COMM), a global leader in network connectivity, and Boldyn Networks (Boldyn), a leading neutral host provider in the United States and globally, today announced the deployment of Wi-Fi 7 indoor access points in selected areas of Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida. A 65,000-seat venue, Camping World Stadium is home to world-class events including sporting games and concerts. Initially deployed in press and VIP areas, the RUCKUS® R770 Wi-Fi® access points provide what is believed to be the first Wi-Fi 7 deployment in a major stadium.
“Wi-Fi 7 is the next wave in wireless technology, and we are proud to have delivered it to Camping World Stadium recently. This unlocks tremendous opportunities for an evolved fan experience,” said Christos Karmis, CEO of Boldyn's US business. “With its superior speed, capacity, reliability and low latency, Wi-Fi 7 will undoubtedly revolutionize the way fans engage and experience games and events at Camping World Stadium."
The outcome of deploying the solution shows an increase in throughput by 60% with Wi-Fi 7, reaching 900Mbps, when compared to the areas with Wi-Fi 6E, and over 4 times faster than previous generations, with latency drastically reduced by 75%. This measurable improvement is key to the introduction of new use cases with AR and real-time entertainment and social experiences.
“We are thrilled to have worked with Boldyn on this deployment and what we believe to be the first use of Wi-Fi 7 in a large venue, and just in time for an important game,” stated Bart Giordano, president and SVP, Networking, Intelligent Cellular & Security Solutions, CommScope. Giordano added, “RUCKUS R770 Wi-Fi 7 indoor access points deliver a significant leap forward in stadium connectivity offering ultra-fast, low latency wireless connections with improved capacity and efficiency to support high-demand applications, and it is the perfect solution to delight fans. We have delivered the first enterprise-class, AI-driven Wi-Fi 7 solution on the market and we cannot wait for more users to experience the difference it makes.”
Boldyn’s next-generation networks enable highly engaging fan experiences by delivering robust connectivity for fans, vendors and staff in the stadium. Boldyn’s recent fan connectivity study revealed that 81% of event-goers would spend more money on concessions and merchandise if ordering were more convenient. And an overwhelming majority want to order food and drink (81%) or merchandise (73%) from their seats and have it delivered directly to them.
Boldyn’s deployment of the RUCKUS R770 platform, driven by RUCKUS AI™, a cloud service for network assurance and business intelligence to enhance Wi-Fi 7 network resilience, is instrumental in delivering customer solutions that are fan-first focused. RUCKUS AI simplifies network management by presenting key information to operators, improving network visibility, speeding up problem solving, meeting service level agreements (SLAs) and facilitating a seamless user experience.
