Description

 

This past March (2017), we unexpectedly hosted the first and second rounds of the NCAA Basketball Tournament, and the SEC Women's basketball tournament.  We were tasked with providing wired and wireless internet access to 1000+ people courtside, backstage, and on the concourse, and used 100% Unifi products to accomplish this. Everything went smooth and we were given many compliments on how great the WiFi was compared to other venues they had been to. I wish I had taken more pictures and gotten more statistics, but I was so busy those weeks and they went by so fast. We are now looking to install even more Unifi products in our arena for guest WiFi access (can't wait to get my hands on some XG-Stadiums I've read about).

And a few more traffic stats. For the NCAA we did about 1TB of traffic per day.

Awesome story man! As a guy who went to Clemson and lives in Pawleys it's great to see Unifi Equipment being used so close to home!

Very nice.   And yes the Stadium XG UAPs would be ideal here - in fact the CU Basketball Arena has Stadium UAPs covering the entire place since this past fall as one of the initial test sites.  Plus the NBA Memphis Grizzlies arena has been 100% UniFi for years now  ;-)

Now we have to wait for UBNT to come up with an 802.3BT Switch!

Nice to know about the XG UAPs at Clemson, I will have to go check them out! (wish I had known they were looking for test sites, lol)
