Bringing Wireless Connectivity to America’s Largest Racetrack

Opening in 2012, the Circuit of the Americas (COTA) is a state-of-the-art multi-purpose world class racing circuit track in Austin, Texas. While COTA plays host to the Formula One United States Grand Prix, it also hosts the Motorcycle Grand Prix of The Americas, a round of the Road Racing World Championship, commonly known as Moto GP, the FIA World Endurance Championship, as well as the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. The circuit was the first in the United States to be purpose-built for Formula One.

  • Only Formula One racetrack in the U.S.
  • Hosts over 240,000 visitors for the Formula One United States Grand Prix
  • 120,000-person seating capacity
  • Located on over 1,500 acres of land
  • 3.41-mile race track


So how does a venue of this size support mobility for the 120,000+ fans in attendance? The renowned racetrack facility has a high-quality Distributed Network owned and operated by Extenet Systems that provides fast, reliable communications to the growing number of spectators who use their mobile devices at the venue. The Distributed Network provides consistent coverage via strategically placed nodes and antennas, which do not require any obtrusive towers that would potentially block viewing angles. The venue presented a unique challenge in terms of its substantial coverage area, encompassing the track, stands and parking areas. The network combines performance with an integrated design that blends with COTA’s environment.
