Borussia Dortmund has the largest football stadium in Germany, a temple of football that maintains a very high average attendance of some 80,000 fans (a Bundesliga record). To better connect the team with the fans, Dortmund decided to deploy stadium-wide Wi-Fi coverage of a sellout capacity, making for an unprecedented smart stadium experience.
Huawei’s Agile Stadium solution was built to redefine the stadium experience for 80,000 screaming football fans, with moment sharing, in-game questionnaires, instant replay, ticket purchase, and even geolocation/direction all included. Not only does this enable a quantum leap in terms of the fan experience, it brings whole new business opportunities for the club and the stadium.
It takes advanced wireless technology to keep 80,000 fans communicating and streaming without interruption. Agile Stadium includes an intelligent scheduling system for the air interface, double 5GHz RF modules, and other high performance network equipment that delivers speeds of up to 1.75Gbps, going far beyond the industry average.
