Are large operational groups with multiple stadia and arenas in their portfolios doing enough to address sustainability issues, or should the onus lie with individual venues to reduce their environmental footprint?

NFL appoints Extreme Networks as official wi-fi analytics provider for Super Bowl 50

Extreme Networks, the official wi-fi solutions provider for the NFL, has announced it will be providing analytics for Super Bowl 50, which is to be played on February 7, 2016, at Levi’s Stadium, in Santa Clara, California. ExtremeAnalytics, the company’s network-powered application analytics solution, will be leveraged to monitor and measure the fan experience at the game.

In addition to providing wi-fi analytics at the Super Bowl 50 stadium, Extreme Networks will also extend its ExtremeWireless solution to the Super Bowl City fan village, located in the San Francisco Bay area, where over 100 wi-fi coaches will assist fans. 

Extreme Networks’ application analytics technology monitors network data that carries context of users, devices, locations and applications in use. ExtremeAnalytics captures this data and delivers pervasive intelligence and reporting into how people engage their devices in the stadium. The increased visibility into the fan experience helps the NFL interpret and solve any wi-fi connectivity issues, while also proactively supporting the growing number of devices fans expect to seamlessly engage with at the game. 

Extreme Networks’ wi-fi and analytics capabilities have a proven track record of success across multiple industries. In the NFL alone, Extreme Networks solutions provide reliable wireless connectivity to 17 stadia across the USA.  

“In order to deliver fast and dependable applications over the wireless network for 75,000 fans, we need a wi-fi analytics solution that is dependable, effective and provides insights into fan engagement in our venues,” said Michelle McKenna-Doyle, CIO and SVP of the NFL.

“Extreme Networks successfully delivered on all three of these qualifications at Super Bowl XLVIII and XLIX. We understand that connectivity is more important than ever before and are confident that Extreme will provide us with the ability to monitor wi-fi service levels throughout Super Bowl 50 stadium in order to deliver our fans the coverage they need to share the iconic moments of Super Bowl 50.” 

“Last year’s Super Bowl surpassed the largest amount of data ever consumed in a single day,” added Norman Rice, EVP of worldwide marketing and corporate development, Extreme Networks.

“More fans are expressing the need to capture, upload and share their experiences and it has caused data usage to skyrocket at big games, heightening the need for a solution to monitor and measure the vast number of devices on the network at one time.

“ExtremeAnalytics is unique because it provides intelligent, actionable insights that boost network performance in real time, ensuring that fans are never without wireless coverage.”
