Many millions of people across the U.S. and hundreds of millions around the world will have their eyes on U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on Sunday, February 4. Aviat will be right in the middle of it, supplying the backhaul segments of a complex of mobile, temporary, and permanent networking equipment that uses Gigabit connections to make one of the world’s big spectacles seamless to viewers.
Aviat will help multiple Tier 1 mobile service providers to bolster service in and around the stadium and other venues. The links will carry traffic from a combination of cell on wheels (COW) mobile cell sites, temporary LTE and WiFi sites, and fixed security cameras, all in and around the Super Bowl venue and downtown Minneapolis.
Products deployed for service providers include the CTR 8000, ODU 600, and StreetnodeTM products, supplying point-to-point links to carry Super Bowl traffic in cases where fiber is not available. Aviat solutions enable fast deployments and features an integrated, “street friendly” (physically and visually unobtrusive) antenna. A unique “steerable” (self-aligning) antenna enables smooth Gigabit traffic throughout the Super Bowl network, regardless of whether it’s fiber or microwave.
Of course, public safety is critical at any event of this size and popularity. Multiple public safety agencies in and around Minneapolis will use Aviat mission critical radios, carrying secure traffic for first responders around the event. Aviat equipment will be used by city and state level first responders in Minneapolis for their voice and data communications.
And what about the 67,000-plus spectators watching the game from their seats and booths? Many will use their iPhones, iPads and Android smart devices to tweet, Facebook, post video, and otherwise cheer their team or jeer the other team. Aviat will play a key role in carrying this traffic away from the stadium to today’s social media venues.
