MobileTop StoriesWest Coast

Extreme Networks, a cloud-driven networking company, has announced it was selected by Stanford Athletics to deliver professional-grade, high-density Wi-Fi 6 networks to transform and improve the fan experience at both Stanford Stadium and Maples Pavilion.

Working in partnership with Comcast Business, Extreme deployed Wi-Fi 6 access points throughout the stadium and pavilion, providing fans with fast, high-performing and reliable connectivity.

Stanford Athletics is using ExtremeAnalytics to streamline gameday operations, easily identify and troubleshoot network issues, and gain better visibility into Wi-Fi usage throughout the two venues to optimize the fan experience.

The newly deployed network allows Stanford to implement digital services such as mobile ticketing and a rollout of the new Stanford Athletics app with additional services planned in the future. 

Comcast Business served as the systems integrator for the deployment and is providing the underlying connectivity for the network via its Metro Ethernet Dedicated Internet service. Following network turn-up, Comcast Business will continue to operate and monitor the network as a managed services provider.

John Brams, Vice President, Sports and Entertainment, Extreme Networks, said: ” Stanford Athletics has taken a significant leap forward by modernizing its stadium with infrastructure to power more consumer-centric experiences such as mobile ticketing, extending its prestigious reputation as a leading technology institution out to the stadium and arena.”
