TE Connectivity offers distributed antenna system for Rugby World Cup

TE Connectivity announced that its FlexWave Prism distributed antenna system
(DAS) has been deployed at the Eden Park stadium in Auckland, New Zealand.

Eden Park was the main stadium for the Rugby World Cup, and hosted 60,000
spectators at the games. The FlexWave Prism DAS provides uniform coverage and
capacity throughout the property, and delivers services for Telecom New Zealand
and Vodafone New Zealand customers.

TE Connectivity’s reseller Sky Communications handled the deployment. The FlexWave Prism DAS covers
all areas of the stadium and incorporates 15 FlexWave Prism remote units with
253 antennas. The equipment delivers 850 MHz, 900 MHz, 1800 MHz and 2100 MHz
frequencies to provide 2G and 3G services.

“The stadium needed a solution to prepare for capacity crowds of mobile phone
users during the World Cup, and to prepare the venue for future mobile data
applications,” said Merv Taylor, general manager at Sky Communications.

This flexibility and performance make TE’s FlexWave Prism DAS products the most
popular choice for in-building mobile services at stadiums around the world.

“The system covers indoor and outdoor areas of the stadiums equally well,” said
Chris Jurasek, vice president and general manager of TE Wireless and Services.
