TCU stadium gets high tech makeover too

After high-fiving fellow Horned Frog fans following a big play, attendees at Amon G. Carter Stadium can now share the news electronically, courtesy of a new stadium network unveiled today.


Texas Christian University fans can now be connected to a new AT&T Wi-Fi in-stadium Network. In addition, AT&T has joined a Distributed Antenna System (DAS) at the home of the TCU Horned Frogs to bring enhanced mobile coverage for fans and visitors. The 140-antenna DAS covers the area inside the stadium and also boosts coverage outside the stadium's major entrances.
DAS technology consists of many antennas tuned to precisely match the area of a building where boosted service is needed to help improve call reliability, increase data traffic capacity and enable more consistent network access on their AT&T devices at the stadium, according to the company.


The Wi-Fi and the DAS technologies will work in unison, according to a company news release.
Coupled with the TCU Mobile app, fans can receive scores and stats, football news, parking maps and a new addition the Bypass Lane. Bypass Lane allows fans to skip the concession stand line by ordering food and drinks straight from their mobile device.
"We are extremely proud of our collaboration with AT&T in enhancing the game-day fan experience at Amon G. Carter Stadium," said Chris Del Conte, TCU Director of Intercollegiate Athletics in a news release. "Through its state-of-the-art Wi-Fi network, which is being admired and emulated by colleagues across the country, AT&T has enabled us to set the standard in connectivity at a sports venue.” - Robert Francis
