New Meadowlands Stadium Company needed greater capacity and coverage for its new 2.1 million square foot stadium but obtaining new frequencies would be a challenge. With nearly 4,000 workers trying to keep more than 82,000 enthusiastic football fans happy in the new stadium, staff would need to rely heavily on two-way radios to communicate. Having leased an analog system in the old stadium, which would not provide the sufficient capacity and coverage required in the new stadium, the organization decided to purchase a new system. This meant obtaining new frequencies—a challenge, especially in a major metropolitan area.
MOTOTRBO digital two-way radio system with Capacity Plus would easily accommodate the stadium’s expanded workforce and enable coverage throughout the stadium. MOTOTRBO digital technology divides each frequency into two time slots, doubling the number of users on the system and reducing the number of frequencies the organization would need to purchase. MOTOTRBO also provides crisp, clear audio all the way to the edge of the coverage area, extending usable range. And with MOTOTRBO’s noise-cancelling technology and sophisticated audio accessories, even most staff working inside the noisy environment of “the bowl” on game day would be able to clearly hear messages.
With New Meadowlands Stadium’s MOTOTRBO digital two-way radio system, staff can easily collaborate and offer excellent service to fans. “Motorola is a very strong partner to the National Football League (NFL) and the Official Wireless Communications Provider of the NFL for the past 13 years. MOTOTRBO radios gave us the opportunity to control our destiny,” says Peter Brickman, New Meadowlands Stadium CTO. “We wanted our own frequencies; to own our own hardware and maintain it; and ensure that our people would have the communications they needed to do their jobs. The MOTOTRBO system is a vital asset to stadium operations.”
