Wireless Telecom Group’s Microlab brand has been selected to provide ultra-wideband solutions to support the expansion of SoFi Stadium’s cellular network, enabling increased capacity and 5G network densification. The Microlab solutions were specifically selected due to superior capabilities in addressing evolving wireless requirements, ensuring the deployment of future-proof networks that can support new 5G services now and in the future, according to Wireless Telecom Group.
Building upon the previous integration of Microlab’s ultra-wideband solutions at SoFi Stadium to provide optimized wireless coverage and capacity from the outset, the venue must now augment the network in preparation to hold large events with at-capacity crowds, Wireless Telecom Group said. It said that events of this magnitude must deliver a seamless 5G experience to an increased number of fans, particularly when the venue is at maximum occupancy and under extreme wireless demands.
“As fans return to stadiums across the country, we are proud to extend our leading ultra-wideband solutions and provide next-generation wireless connectivity at SoFi Stadium,” said Walt Strickler, Wireless Telecom Group’s VP of product management. “Our focus on delivering products that accelerate 5G network deployments and guarantees optimal network performance is relied upon by our customers to build a robust cellular network for improved fan experiences.”
Microlab’s ultra-wideband solutions are designed to address the needs of today as well as tomorrow, providing the flexibility to adapt to changes in 5G FR1 allocated, licensed, and shared-use frequency bands, according to Wireless Telecom Group. The company said that the Microlab ultra-wideband product portfolio includes readily available solutions such as combiners, filters, cables, power dividers, terminations, tappers and couplers.
