NEW YORK -
On the court and in the stands, for the fieldhouse Patrons, Extricom's wireless LAN's... got it covered!
Extricom Ltd., the enterprise wireless LAN (WLAN) solution provider that delivers seamless mobility with its patented Channel Blanket™ architecture, today announced its latest deployment at Bankers Life Fieldhouse arena in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. For several years, according to the Sports Business Journal/Sports Business Daily Reader Survey, Bankers Life Fieldhouse was ranked the "No. 1 venue in the NBA". Bankers Life Fieldhouse is home to the Indiana Pacers, Indiana Fever and many other sporting events including college basketball, concerts, and ice hockey. As part of a technology upgrade the entire arena bowl was outfitted with Extricom's Wi-Fi proven technology, for large public venues with high densities of wireless clients supplied by Extricom's US partner, SignalShare, a leading provider of wireless Internet solutions for the sports and entertainment industries.
Bankers Life Fieldhouse required a comprehensive wireless LAN solution to cover an arena with seating capacity of 18,165 and additional suites and other luxury areas on site. Uniquely suited for large public venues (LPVs), Extricom's Channel Blanket™ architecture was selected, as it enables single channels to blanket entire sections of an arena's seating bowl, eliminating the need for difficult, if not impossible to deploy, microcell system designs.
"At the end of the day, installing Extricom was quick, seamless and straightforward," said Kevin Naylor, VP Information Technology at Pacers Sports & Entertainment and Bankers Life Fieldhouse. "Since its installation several months ago we have noticed the increased ease and speed of our wireless network. Once we experienced true wireless connectivity, there was no going back. Thanks to Extricom, each and every mobile device under our roof works without a glitch - 24/7."
Bankers Life Fieldhouse management were ready to have high-performance wireless service on board. David Birkhead, SVP of Engineering and Technology at SignalShare, commented "We had the privilege of installing a production pilot system at the start of the 2013 NBA season. So far, the response from all users has been tremendous - they've all been very satisfied with fast and reliable Wi-Fi coverage. We are pleased to be part of the Extricom team and we take pride in installing their technology at every new client's site."
Dan Kirtchuk, Extricom Inc., VP Sales & GM, comments, "The opportunity to partner with Bankers Life Fieldhouse and install our Wi-Fi solution was a significant milestone for us. Wireless networks integrated into indoor and outdoor arenas are on the rise. With that, Extricom is proud to spearhead an overall trend in the U.S. and in Europe and incorporate
its award-winning WLAN into large public venues with high densities of wireless clients."
