CommScope's (NASDAQ:COMM) fiber-optic and copper cabling has been installed in Allegiant Stadium, the new 65,000-seat home of the Las Vegas Raiders. The 227 miles of fiber and more than 1.5 million feet of copper are intended to support more than 2,400 screens, 1,700 WiFi 6 access points (APs), and Allegiant Stadium's Distributed Antenna System (DAS). The 100G fiber backbone and 10G CAT 6A copper will deliver connectivity for stadium systems and applications such as high-resolution security cameras, fire and safety, HVAC and lighting controls, wayfinding, ticketing, concessions, merchandise, and parking.

"CommScope's fiber-optic cabling delivers the high-bandwidth connectivity needed for a truly compelling and interactive Las Vegas Raiders fan experience," said Matthew Pasco, Raiders vice president of technology. "This includes 4K-ready video replays, as well as live streams captured by multiple cameras. With CommScope fiber, Allegiant Stadium is well positioned for the future and ready to accommodate an ever-increasing number of standard client devices such as smartphones and tablets, along with evolving technology like augmented reality (AR) glasses and virtual reality (VR) helmets."

10G CAT 6A copper cabling will connect in-house applications while its coaxial cables will connect the new DAS system in the stadium.

"We're proud to support the Las Vegas Raiders fan experience in the new Allegiant Stadium," said Ben Cardwell, senior vice president of CommScope's Venue and Campus Networks. "Our fiber is helping to deliver high-bandwidth connectivity to hundreds of thousands of smartphones and tablets, while supporting 4K video streaming and replays captured by multiple cameras with comprehensive viewing angles. These virtual video experiences enable Raiders fans to feel like they are in the middle of the action - no matter where they are in the stadium - with panoramic and front-row views."
