How do you install DAS when your venue, just doesn’t allow for it? You get creative.
The University of California’s Memorial Stadium is in the process of designing a unique DAS system to deliver cell and Wi-Fi service to the stadium. Memorial Stadium is designed as bowl making any upgrades difficult.
According to Mobile Sports Report, “Right now, the wireless experience inside Memorial isn’t cutting edge. Basically a big concrete bowl filled with seats, Memorial has none of the overhanging levels that allow you to more easily attach antennas underneath, be they Wi-Fi access points or the small antennas used in DAS deployments. “
Currently, Memorial Stadium is having to use COWs, or Cell on Wheels, to deliver cell service to the stadium. The COWs, are disguised with a black cloth for now. Once more permanent DAS antennas are installed, concealments can be built around them.
