Large Public Venues


Give everyone a crowd-pleasing guest experience with high-density Wi-Fi and mobile apps that engage

Aruba delivers unmatched Wi-Fi performance, cost-effectiveness and ease of deployment to stadiums, airports and other large public venues with high concentrations of mobile devices.

For service providers and venue owners, Aruba WLANs are essential to offloading wireless traffic from 3G/4G LTE networks and can support thousands of Wi-Fi-enabled mobile devices with no performance penalties.

With Aruba, concert-goers, sports fans and convention attendees enjoy an exceptional event experience through value-added Wi-Fi amenities like video instant replay, in-seat food and beverage service, mobile point-of-sale and multimedia entertainment.

“Fans can now watch instant replays, receive precise turn-by-turn navigation, and order food directly from their mobile devices.”
Dan Williams, Vice President of Technology, The San Francisco 49ers

Take it one step further with Meridian-powered mobile apps that help visitors discover and explore your venue with location-based notifications about in-house services as well as indoor wayfinding tools with turn-by-turn directions.
