Connectivity Wireless is honored to be the the integrator of the Corning ONE DAS™ for Smart City Networks at the San Diego Convention Center!

Telecommunications provider for the convention industry, Smart City Networks, has announced completion of a new distributed antenna system (DAS) designed to expand the cellular service coverage and capacity at the San Diego Convention Center in California, USA.

“This new system is going to make a noticeable difference for everyone who attends an event or convention at the San Diego Convention Center,” said Julia Slocombe, vice-president of Western Region Operations for Smart City Networks.

“This was a massive upgrade, but it reiterates our commitment to deliver exceptional experiences through technology and San Diego’s commitment to be one of the leading meeting and convention destinations in the world.”

The installation of the DAS system involved plotting and installing hundreds of miniature antennas at secure points throughout the convention centre that connect to the networks of various cellular carriers, including AT&T and T-Mobile.

The DAS reduces gaps in coverage created by steel or concrete pillars, isolated niches, and other architectural features that disrupt the signal between the phone and the devices receiving the messages. The result is the elimination of dead spots and improved reliability of the network.

“We are excited to offer our guests and customers yet another amenity to continue to make our facility the region’s premier gathering place,” said San Diego Convention Center Corporation president & CEO Clifford ‘Rip’ Rippetoe.

Smart City also installed a two-way radio system throughout the convention center that allows communication anywhere in the facility.

Implementation of the project took just over two years.

The convention centre brings about 900,000 visitors to San Diego every year.
