Cisco introduces stadium Wi-Fi solution

Cisco has introduced the Cisco Connected Stadium Wi-Fi initiative, a plan to deploy the company's Aironet 3500p access points with CleanAir technology and new directional antennas for improved coverage throughout stadiums.

The new Wi-Fi solution has been deployed in the Livestrong Sporting Park stadium in Kansas city. The stadium opened on June 9.

The Aironet 3500p builds on the Aironet 3500 access point, which was introduced last year. The AP is specifically designed for higher density venues, such as stadiums. The CleanAir technology helps cut down on interference by avoiding competing wireless traffic. In addition, the new APs also leverage new high-density directional antennas that enable a more precise focus of the wireless airwaves into a concentrated area.
