High-Density, Stadium-Grade Wi-Fi Drives Fan Engagement

December 19, 2015
 
 

The Baltimore Ravens are a professional NFL football team based in Baltimore, Maryland. The Ravens play their home games at M&T Bank Stadium, with a capacity of over 71,000. The Ravens knew that an in-venue Wi-Fi investment would be a huge asset for optimizing game day operations and enabling in-stadium fans with full connectivity and unrestricted use of their mobile devices. In addition, a unified and robust network with stadium grade Wi-Fi would help with the support of mission-critical business functions and the advancement of digital marketing initiatives. Ultimately, the Ravens issued an RFP for vendors to submit bids and selected a solution from Extreme Networks because they had the most experience and proven results in other sports and entertainment venues, including multiple NFL partner teams. 

Benefits of the new network solution include:

  • High-density Wi-Fi that enables fans to be fully connected while they are in-stadium
  • Improved the mobile experience for fans
  • The use of ExtremeAnalytics has bolstered the network experience for fans and simplified network management for the IT team
