KLA worked to complete Ford Field’s 2017 off-season renovation project. KLA completed neutral host DAS design and installation to boost cell service so patrons can use their wireless products without interference or dead spots. 500 new access points were installed to cover the bowl areas; as well as a refresh to 500 additional access points to increase capacity to 100 users per point. The overall coverage areas for the project included back of house, bowl areas, offices, suites, and concourses.
In addition to this, KLA installed a new arena sound system in partnership with Parsons. KLA also installed new cabling to support Point of Sale devices, TV’s, monitors, security cameras, and existing network upgrades. New coaxial, triaxial, and fiber optic cabling was installed to meet and enhance broadcast system requirements for Fox Sports and ESPN.
