When you step into a sports and entertainment venue today, it’s clear the game has changed. And Extenet is leading the way with our innovative private wireless network solution.
In a world where digital connections are as vital as the live action, Extenet is blazing new trails in sports and entertainment venues nationwide. Our advanced connectivity offerings include private wireless networks as well as managed infrastructure, mobile Edge computing, in-building and outdoor wireless networks and more. These technologies form a powerful framework that empowers real-time engagement and immersive experiences for fans across the world as well as boosting revenue and streamlining back-of-house operations for venues.
Extenet: Pioneering Advanced Connectivity in Sports & Entertainment
In the realm of sports and entertainment, fan engagement reigns supreme. As social media turns each fan into a potential broadcaster, the demand for a robust, high-performance communications network has never been higher, and Extenet has risen to meet this challenge time and time again.
As venues evolve and expand to meet the needs of today’s tech-savvy customers, their wireless infrastructure needs to evolve. Private wireless networks offer a dedicated infrastructure that ensures seamless connectivity even in densely-populated areas, resulting in enhanced coverage, speed and reliability.
For fans and guests, this translates to a superior experience where they can enjoy uninterrupted internet access, lightning-fast downloads and lag-free streaming. Futhermore, private wireless networks power next-gen guest services like digital venue maps and geolocation, ticketless parking and entry, real-time game analytics, mobile point-of-sale transactions for food, beverages and merchandise, and much more.
Additional advantages to private networks in sports and entertainment venues include the ability to customize the architecture according to the venue’s specific needs, prioritizing security through the use of robust encryption protocols, authentication mechanisms and the seamless integration of Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
This enables instantaneous data analysis and intelligent automation to increase back-of-house operational efficiency, enhance safety and security, streamline processes like inventory management, and provide personalized services to guests. In addition to the infinite scalability of private wireless networks, these benefits provide venue owners with distinct advantages in a competitive landscape.
As a premier privately-held provider of digital infrastructure solutions, Extenet delivers connected experiences via high bandwidth, low latency wireless networks that operate in 300+ marquee venues across the country. With private 5G, we can help leading venues deliver the ultimate fan experience while generating new revenue streams and improving efficiency and safety.
But don’t just take our word for it. Halfway through 2023, we’ve already been recognized with two prestigious Globee Awards for two high-profile projects: Our in-building wireless connectivity partnership with MGM Resorts International and the deployment of the first private wireless network at AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas, home of the San Antonio Spurs.
