All Extreme, Edge-to-Core Infrastructure and Wi-Fi Analytics Help Redefine Fan Engagement
SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Today's in-stadium experience is more connected than ever. Fans use applications and devices to share their experience on social media, while players and coaches leverage digital technologies to monitor and manage team performance. To boost connectivity at their practice facilities and ensure a rich, wireless multimedia experience for fans on game-day, the New York Jets and the New York Giants deployed Extreme Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR) Smart OmniEdge™ networking solutions at their joint stadium, MetLife Stadium, and at their individual practice facilities.
MetLife Stadium is one of the largest stadiums in the National Football League (NFL) and is home to both the New York Jets and New York Giants. It is host to more professional football games per season than any other facility, as well as numerous other sporting and entertainment events throughout the year. There is seating for 82,500 fans at the 2 million square foot facility. It is outfitted with 2,200 HDTVs and four high-definition LED video boards that stream real-time video footage during the events, making reliable connectivity critical.
With ExtremeSwitching™ products, MetLife Stadium has an all-Extreme, core-to-edge wired network to connect video screens, enable electrical lighting systems, support stadium security efforts and power retail and concessions stands. This highly resilient, redundant network also provides the backbone for stadium WiFi. ExtremeManagement™ technology provides IT with centralized visibility and control of stadium network resources so they can quickly identify and troubleshoot issues as they arise. With ExtremeAnalytics™ technology, IT has granular visibility into network and application performance, users, locations and devices, and can capture information related to what apps are running on the wired and Wi-Fi network, who is using them and what the response time is for each app. With these insights, the Jets and Giants can deliver personalized offers and application features to engaged fans.
At the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center and New York Giants Quest Diagnostics Training Center, ExtremeSwitching and ExtremeManagement platforms support business and football operations, including video surveillance at the Giants facility. ExtremeMobility™ products enable Wi-Fi at the Jets facility.
As the Official Wi-Fi Solutions Provider of the NFL, Extreme was selected by the Jets and Giantsdue to its proven track record of delivering high-density Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi analytics solutions to 28 NFL teams, and during the past five Super Bowls. Extreme worked with Carousel Industries and MetLife Stadium partner Verizon Enterprise to deploy the stadium network ahead of the 2017 football season. Carousel Industries also supported installation at each practice facility.
