5G Is Bringing Football Home

9th, July 2021

5G has the potential to be a game-changer in football by improving the matchday experience, immersing fans into the beautiful game.

Imagine Kane wearing a player cam so you can experience the game from his perspective or even the referee. Or being able to able to hold up our phones and have the players name and stats float above them as they run around the pitch.

Several high-profile partnerships between mobile network operators and football clubs have already formed to bring the benefits of 5G to fans for an improved quality of fandom experience.

Tottenham Hotspur designed their build stadium with “technology incorporated into the fabric of the building to enhance the fan experience” offering 1,600 wireless access points that “allows 65% of matchday attendees to simultaneously stream live video,” providing faster connectivity for fans.

But how does 5G BRING IT HOME?

5G is not just about the Radio Access Network (RAN) wireless only makes up a small portion of the data journey. The rest of this path is primarily a fibre-optic transport network, the wireline infrastructure interconnecting end-users to accessed content residing in data centres, must be ready to support upwards of 1,000 times more data flowing across it.

But how do you achieve the speed whilst carrying the volume of data required for a sharper, smarter, safer, and more connected world?

You build a network of base stations and repeater cabins every 60 miles to ensure the signal strength, thus, allowing more processing to happen on the edge, leading to lower latencies and faster data processing.

If your tasked with bringing 5G home, give Work Workspace Technology’s Team a call for all your prefabricated cabins and enclosure requirements.
