Verizon is deploying a new Distributed Antenna System (DAS) throughout the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
The new DAS system will provide 4G LTE service and 5G Ultra Wideband service using Verizon’s C-band spectrum designed for high capacity and wide coverage in addition to the 5G service it already offers in the stadium using its premium millimeter wave spectrum. It will cover the field, bowl, concourse (including the four gate entrances), all clubs/suites, and the ticketing areas. As part of the new design, engineers are also adding a performance enhancement technology that divides crowds into sectors like pieces of a pie. Each sector can be adjusted individually to handle wireless traffic.
Verizon is also increasing the capacity on the fiber connections in and out of MetLife so they can carry 10 times the amount of data.
