Axell Wireless has supplied DAS for multiple stadia in Brazil to enable fans to further enjoy and share their experience of the country’s upcoming large sporting events on social media via seamless mobile data coverage.

Working closely with leading partner RFS (Radio Frequency Systems), Axell has helped to deliver cellular mobile phone coverage to sporting venues in Brazil, including the Maracanã stadium and the Mineirão stadium: two of the country’s largest stadia with a combined capacity of over 141,000.

The in-building coverage solution ensures the thousands of spectators can use their mobile devices without any service degradation.

“Deploying one of the most sophisticated DAS networks in the world for the London 2012 Olympic Games prepared us well for these projects in Brazil,” said Axell Wireless Vice-President of Sales-Americas Matt Thompson. “The stadium environment is unique in many ways when it comes to designing and installing a wireless coverage network, and the insight we gathered during London 2012 has meant we can supply a world-class communications system that will support the fans during upcoming major sporting events.”

“We are proud to be able to work with the team at Axell to bring comprehensive wireless coverage to these world-class venues,” said RFS Global Product Line Director for Transmission Lines and Wireless Indoor Solutions Peter Raabe.

The venues now benefit from a state-of-the-art optical DAS simultaneously supporting five different mobile operators and providing 2G, 3G and 4G coverage.
