Angel Stadium Trials CBRS Private LTE Network
Thursday, October 17, 2019 | Comments

Systems integrator Connectivity Wireless and JMA announced they will deploy a trial private Long Term Evolution (LTE) network using Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) for Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California. The trial started Oct. 14 and runs until Oct. 25.

The Angels will trial the OnGo ecosystem to create secure, dedicated wireless communications on demand, making the stadium one of the nation’s first major sports venues authorized for commercial deployment of a private network using the new CBRS 3.5 GHz spectrum.

The private network is expected to power critical support systems such as retail tracking, point-of-sale systems, ticket/access systems, high-definition cameras, digital displays and secure internal communications. The network will define 10-megahertz bandwidth lanes, each providing up to 75 Megabits per second (Mbps). Using private and dedicated spectrum will enable critical support systems to operate independent of public Wi-Fi and cellular networks, a statement said.

“Connectivity Wireless and JMA will work with us to realize the potential of owning and deploying our own private network with the security and control we desire, giving us end to end ownership and flexibility,” said Al Castro, director of information services at Angels Baseball. “The OnGo ecosystem will enable our vision to deliver a best-in-class fan experience.”

Connectivity Wireless is deploying the private network trial on behalf of the stadium as well as providing selection, installation, integration and operation of the service. Device partners, including Federated Wireless acting as spectrum access system (SAS) controller, Athonet Cloud enhanced packet core (EPC), and Athonet edge node, were also added to complete the network.
