Philadelphia Eagles, Lincoln Financial Field, Everest Networks Set High Wi-Fi Performance Marks During NFL Season Opener


Mountain View, CA, October 18, 2018 --( Everest Networks has announced that the Philadelphia Eagles and Lincoln Financial Field's home opener on Thursday, September 12, 2018 set record-breaking Wi-Fi usage numbers for a non-championship athletic event, trailing only Super Bowl 52 (16.31 TB) and Super Bowl 51 (11.8 TB).

With a sold-out venue, Lincoln Financial Field's Wi-Fi network provided guest and carrier offload access to more than 47,000 visitors – which represented 68% of the attendance – and transferred over 10.8 TB of wireless traffic. A peak of almost 37,000 concurrent connections was observed, for a peak concurrent utilization rate of 54%, while the Wi-Fi network traffic briefly saturated the 10 Gbps stadium backbone connection under its heaviest load.

Following the impressive Wi-Fi performance at the NFC Championship Game on January 21, 2018 (8.76 TB), the team prepared for a high amount of traffic for the NFL season opener, but the end result came as a surprise. "The performance of Lincoln Financial Field's Wi-Fi network has been enhanced in a major way thanks to Everest Networks' wireless technology," said John Pawling, Philadelphia Eagles Vice President of Information Technology. "On a night when we expected high Wi-Fi usage, the network handled the traffic without any issues and performed very well. Everest's aerially mounted, multi-radio APs allowed us to deploy only five gigahertz in the bowl with fewer APs than what would be possible with conventional wireless products, which is proving to be a successful formula."

Everest Networks' fan-facing Wi-Fi network provides optimal performance with just 200 multi-radio access points installed in the bowl, all of which are positioned over-head, ensuring that Everest Networks' High-Density solution provides the best value for stadium Wi-Fi.

"Lincoln Financial Field's performance shows Everest Networks' ability to deliver world-class Wi-Fi in the most challenging of high-density environments," noted Simon Wright, Everest Networks Vice President of Marketing. "With our innovative APs, carrier offloading, and intelligent load and network balancing algorithms, stadium Wi-Fi is reaching higher standards. And with fewer APs than otherwise thought possible, our solution has once again delivered superior performance at a significantly lower cost."
