Hewlett-Packard offers IT - Chase Center Image: Golden State Warriors

California based multinational IT firm Hewlett-Packard Enterprises will provide infrastructure and networking solutions to the Chase Center as part of a new partnership with the Golden State Warriors, the team recently announced. Chase Center in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood will open in September 2019 as the new home stadium of the current NBA champions.

Much of the technology being installed into the new stadium will come from Hewlett-Packard-owned company Aruba. HPE and Aruba will install WiFi access points, security platforms, network management software into Chase Center to connect over 6,000 devices within the stadium (TVs and video boards, ticket scanners, team stores, etc.). That number does not include mobile devices connected to the WiFi network.

Aruba will also implement its Network Analytics Engine troubleshooting platform, which will monitor performance and security related issues within the Chase Center network. The physical hardware comprising the arena’s network will include nearly 600 miles of fiber optic cable and 300 miles of copper cable routing between 31 telecommunication rooms.

Working with the Golden State Warriors and Chase Center provides us with an incredible opportunity to evolve the fan connected experience by delivering the most advanced wireless technology just now coming to market,” said Keerti Melkote, Aruba’s co-founder and president, in a press release. “Built-in AI-intelligence, location services, and seamless roaming encourages arena visitors to interact and share their experiences with others without fear of slow connectivity or mobile data usage.”

The multi-purpose 18,064-seat arena is scheduled to open ahead of the Warriors’ 2019-20 season. As part of this deal, HPE’s network technology will also power the venue’s 5,000-person performing arts theater, 100,000 square feet of restaurant and retail businesses, and 580,000 square feet of office space that are part of the greater 11-acre Chase Center complex currently being built in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood.

“Our partnership with HPE will enable our fans and guests to experience a seamless connected experience from the moment they step onto our site,” said Warriors President and COO Rick Welts, in the press release. “HPE’s experience in the connectivity space and their knowledge and understanding of our needs is what makes them a perfect partner for the Warriors and Chase Center.”
