Leading telecommunications infrastructure company Mobilitie and AEG have partnered together to bring next-generation wireless technology and state-of-the-art connectivity to downtown Los Angeles’ (US) Arena and its adjacent 4 million square foot sports and entertainment district, L.A. Live. The wireless network is already being deployed and will be integrated with all the major wireless carriers.

The ‘yahoo!finance’ stated that Mobilitie’s 5G deployment throughout Arena and L.A. Live will not only meet future wireless demands, but allow for expanded digital initiatives, improved venue operations and enhanced fan communications. The updated network will equip Arena and the entire L.A. Live campus with one of the most technologically advanced multicarrier wireless networks in the United States.

Mobilitie, a BAI Communications company, is a leading telecommunications infrastructure company in the United States. A global provider of complete wireless solutions, its next-generation infrastructure includes communication towers, indoor and outdoor neutral host DAS networks, small cells, fiber, Internet of things (IoT), and Wi-Fi and private networks which help deliver wireless connectivity where it is needed. Its engineers innovate solutions to improve wireless service at the largest and most complex venues across all major industries including sports and entertainment arenas, commercial real estate and hospitality properties, university campuses, healthcare facilities, Government agencies, and transportation terminals.

Headquartered in Los Angeles, California (US), AEG is the world’s leading sports and live entertainment company. The company, through its affiliation with ASM Global, owns, manages or consults with more than 300 pre-eminent arenas, stadiums, convention centers, and performing arts venues around the world.

The 20,000-capacity Arena, formerly known as Staples Center from 1999 to 2021, is a multipurpose arena in Downtown Los Angeles (US). Adjacent to the L.A. Live development, it is located next to the Los Angeles Convention Center complex along Figueroa Street. The arena opened on October 17th, 1999.

The L.A. Live is an entertainment complex in the South Park District of Downtown Los Angeles, California. It is adjacent to the Arena and the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Said Nick Baker, Chief Operating Officer (COO), AEG Global Partnerships, “Through our longstanding partnership with Mobilitie, we’re providing sports and live-entertainment fans who visit us from around the world with an unrivaled wireless experience at two of the most iconic downtown Los Angeles venues. This next step in our relationship underscores AEG’s enduring commitment to deliver an unmatched fan experience through cutting-edge technology that also takes our venue operations and efficiencies to the next level.”

The ‘yahoo!finance’ further stated that the rapidly evolving landscape of sports and live entertainment requires a critical wireless connectivity backbone that’s capable of providing guests and staff with a reliable and modern wireless experience. Whether at home or in-venue, fans expect to engage in real-time social media and photo sharing, live video streaming and more. As a result, large-scale sports and live entertainment venues around the world have seen a steady increase in data usage each year, facilitating the need for network innovation and increasingly robust connectivity solutions across the industry.
