The Pittsburgh Steelers will use MatSing’s lens antenna technology inside Acrisure Stadium to support fans’ mobile devices
MatSing’s Multi-Beam Lens Antennas have been installed at Acrisure Stadium in Pittsburgh to enhance the game-day mobile experience for fans using the venue’s Verizon 5G Ultra-Wideband and Nationwide services while attending Steelers games and attending Steelers games. other events.
As part of the collaboration, a total of 60 lens antennas will cover the upper levels of the stadium, allowing fans to “post to social media, check their fantasy lists or share highlights” seamlessly, according to MatSing. Each antenna can broadcast up to 48 independent sectors, providing the best possible signal on multiple bands with the fewest antennas possible.
The company has already integrated its lens antennas at the sites of the Dallas Cowboys, the Las Vegas Raiders, as well as the sites of the last five Super Bowls. In Florida, the NHL’s Tampa Bay Lightning deployed them in the Stanley Cup Finals at Amalie Arena. And just last May, MatSing installed those same antennas at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium to improve fan phone connectivity for Formula 1’s first race at the Miami Grand Prix.
The company’s lightweight lens antennas are superior to traditional antennas, with the ability to power the stadium’s wideband/C-band coverage, transmit and maintain multiple beams, and do so with limited radio frequency interference. MatSing uses a proprietary artificial dielectric polymer that mirrors the human eye’s ability to refract light and applies it to network transmissions.
