Leading telecommunications infrastructure company Mobilitie, a BAI Communications company, and AEG have partnered together to bring next-generation wireless technology and state-of-the art connectivity to downtown Los Angeles’ Crypto.com Arena and its adjacent 4 million square foot sports and entertainment district, L.A. LIVE.

The wireless network is already being deployed and will be integrated with all the major wireless carriers.

Mobilitie’s 5G deployment throughout Crypto.com Arena and L.A. LIVE will not only meet future wireless demands, but allow for expanded digital initiatives, improved venue operations and enhanced fan communications. The updated network will equip Crypto.com Arena and the entire L.A. LIVE campus with one of the most technologically advanced multi-carrier wireless networks in the country.

“Through our long-standing partnership with Mobilitie, we’re providing sports and live-entertainment fans who visit us from around the world with an unrivalled wireless experience at two of the most iconic downtown Los Angeles venues. This next step in our relationship underscores AEG’s enduring commitment to deliver an unmatched fan experience through cutting-edge technology that also takes our venue operations and efficiencies to the next level,” said Nick Baker, chief operating officer, AEG Global Partnerships.

The rapidly evolving landscape of sports and live entertainment requires a critical wireless connectivity backbone that’s capable of providing guests and staff with a reliable and modern wireless experience. Whether at home or in-venue, fans expect to engage in real-time social media and photo sharing, live video streaming and more. As a result, large-scale sports and live entertainment venues around the world have seen a steady increase in data usage each year, facilitating the need for network innovation and increasingly robust connectivity solutions across the industry.

“We have built a strong relationship with AEG in recent years, and we’re excited to officially begin our expanded partnership at locations and venues as iconic as L.A. LIVE and Crypto.com Arena,” said Christos Karmis, president and CEO of Mobilitie. “Mobilitie is pioneering the delivery of 5G connectivity for our clients, and we’re honored to play a key role in creating a dynamic mobile experience for all fans and guests here. We have the most experienced and capable team in the industry that will ensure AEG, sports fans, visitors and guests all have a 5G experience that exceeds expectations that is enabled by our neutral host network.”
