SMG Europe's first direct arena powered by On-Communications, Extricom Wi-Fi

UK-based venue management firm SMG Europe arena communications specialists On-Communications and enterprise wireless LAN provider Extricom said they are partnering to provide a WLAN solution for the new first direct arena in the heart of West Yorkshire UK.

Last week the arena was road tested by US band Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band with their only indoor UK show of 2013. The 13,000 seat venue is the latest arena in SMG´s portfolio.

As part of its construction, SMG Europe chose Extricom´s UK large venue partner On-Communications to provide the arena with Extricom´s large public venue WLAN network.

Installed and deployed in the first direct Arena for the pre-launch event was a dedicated wireless LAN with exceptionally high bandwidth, wire-like reliability and seamless mobility throughout the venue´s production, press, artist areas and crew facilities – all backed by Extricom´s patented Channel Blanket technology.

On-Communications is engaged in the design, deployment and management of large scale enterprise class WiFi networks and mobile service overlays for arenas and major indoor venues.
