Dolphin Stadium Wins InfoWorld 100 Award for BelAir Networks Mobile Broadband Wireless Mesh Deployment

Dolphin
Stadium and BelAir Networks, the provider of mobile broadband mesh network
solutions, announced that Dolphin Stadium was named a winner of the prestigious
InfoWorld 100 for its mobile broadband wireless mesh network, supplied by
BelAir Networks. These annual awards honor projects that demonstrate the most
innovative use of cutting-edge technologies to further the project’s business
goals.

Dolphin
Stadium, home to MLB’s Florida Marlins, NFL’s Miami Dolphins, the FedEx Orange
Bowl and the 2010 Super Bowl, deployed a mere 29 wireless nodes from BelAir
Networks which covers more than two million square feet from the 78,000-seat
stadium and bowl to the 22,000 space parking lots. The powerful multi-service
wireless network is utilized for a wide variety of applications at the stadium
including the world’s largest POS system under one roof supporting food and
beverage service in the stands and on-site restaurants as well as high-speed
Internet access that allows reporters to file stories easily and quickly from
the press box. In the future, the network will also support stadium video
security cameras.

“We are
extremely honored to be a recipient of the InfoWorld 100 Award,” said Tery
Howard, Vice President of Information Technology, Miami Dolphins, Ltd. and
Dolphin Stadium. “There was a huge team effort behind the creation of this
network from both Dolphin Stadium and BelAir Networks and we are thrilled with
this prestigious recognition of our hard work. We will continue to make great
strides in enforcing our technology leadership in the sports arena.”

Dolphin
Stadium has become the technology leader in the world of professional sports.
In addition to its award-winning wireless network, the stadium is the proud
owner of professional sports’ largest high definition (HD) video boards to
support its action-packed football, baseball, and soccer games.

“BelAir
Networks is proud to have our carrier-grade technology showcased in the
competitive environment of cutting-edge venues like Dolphin Stadium,” said Jim
Freeze, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Alliances for BelAir Networks. “Dolphin
Stadium’s requirement for a high-capacity mobile broadband solution was a
perfect match for BelAir Networks’ product line. Over the past year of working
together, we have demonstrated that our award-winning wireless technology can
be deployed securely and effectively to provide the same benefits to high
traffic venues that it delivers to cities and public safety agencies around the
world.”
