Pittsburgh Steelers to Use MatSing’s Lens Antenna Technology Inside Acrisure Stadium to Support Fans’ Mobile Devices
MatSing’s multi-beam lens antennas have been installed at Pittsburgh’s Acrisure Stadium to improve the mobile game-day experience for fans using the venue’s Verizon 5G Ultra-Wideband and Nationwide services while attending Steelers games and other events.
As part of the collaboration, a total of 60 lens antennas will cover the upper levels of the stadium, allowing fans to seamlessly “post to socials, check their fantasy rosters or share highlights,” according to MatSing. Every antenna can disseminate up to 48 independent sectors, providing the best possible signal across multiple bands with as few antennas as possible.
The company has previously integrated its lens antennas at venues for the Dallas Cowboys, Las Vegas Raiders, as well as at venues of the past five Super Bowls. In Florida, the NHL’s Tampa Bay Lightning deployed them during the Stanley Cup Finals at Amalie Arena. And as recently as this past May, MatSing installed those same antennas at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium to improve fans’ phone connectivity for the first Miami Grand Prix Formula One race.
The company’s lightweight lens antennas are superior to traditional antennas, with capability of powering the stadium’s broadband/C-band coverage, emitting and maintaining multiple beams and carrying it out with limited radio-frequency interference. MatSing uses a proprietary artificial dielectric polymer that mirrors the human eye’s capacity to refract light and applies it to network transmissions.
