Improved wireless service for Marlins fans

ExteNet Systems has been chosen by Miami-Dade County and the Miami Marlins to help improve fan experience by designing, building, managing and maintaining a DAS inside Marlins Park. ExteNet has signed agreements with Verizon and T-Mobile to provide enhanced wireless service within the stadium.

Marlins Park officially opened on 4 April 2012 for Major League Baseball’s (MLB) opening night, when the St. Louis Cardinals faced off against the Miami Marlins in the 37,000-seat, 928,000ft2 stadium. With the installation of ExteNet’s DAS, the stadium is one of MLB’s most state-of-the-art facilities, enabling fans to stay connected before, during and after the game.

“ExteNet has provided Marlins Park with the most comprehensive solution for wireless connectivity,” says Claude Delorme, executive vice president of operations and events, Miami Marlins. “Our fans’ experience at a game is of upmost importance and by adding wireless service to our ballpark, we give them convenient access to email, texting and applications, including live video streaming, which certainly adds to their experience at Marlins Park.”

ExteNet’s Network Operations Center (NOC) will provide monitoring of the network 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
