FNT Fiber Network Tools being a proud participant of this year’s Arizona Super
Bowl Host Committee Business Connect Program, we wanted to share an in-depth
look at the technology behind one of the most watched annual events in the
Bowl XLIX is just around the corner and plans are underway once again to deliver
this technological marvel , not just for the estimated 26 game-day events, but
also for the famous week long "Experience Exhibition” that precedes the event.
tech HDTV broadcast fiber cable and equipment are commonly in place year-round
within the stadium itself, but even the stadium will receive temporary upgrades
to handle the barrage of satellite trucks, expanded camera crews, the overload
of broadcast journalist and of course crowd control and security. That’s right, even one of the most exclusive
and modernized stadiums in the country needs a bit of help on the big day.
Additionally, parties, events, sound stages
and vendors will surround the stadium and the Downtown Phoenix Civic Center
where the Experience is scheduled to be held, with each vendor connected to a
high bandwidth optical network.
Let's not forget a complete security
command center that will accommodate City, County, State and Federal Law
Enforcement Agencies with countless permanent and temporary security cameras to
connect and monitor, as well as deployment support for SWAT teams and Explosive
Ordnance Disposal (EOD) task force.
major events such as this, miles of temporary fiber optic and copper cable will
be strung out, connected and made operational in less than a week. That’s like the equivalent of cabling an
entire high rise building overnight with the added pressure of, "getting it all
right the first time” and ensuring that it works properly throughout the entire
it is all over, all or most of the equipment and nearly every inch of cabling
must be removed from the grounds, disposed of in an environmentally friendly
manner, with the grounds returned to normal almost over-night.
FNT is up for the
challenge, as we have been in years past; this being the third Super Bowl
hosted by the State of Arizona.
