Thanks to the network designed and installed by Emitel engineers, Stadion Śląski in Chorzów joined the modern, global arenas such as Wembley. It is the second such facility in Europe where the so-called DAS system. Thanks to this, there will no longer be any problems with communication in sectors where problems with the coverage of mobile networks have so far appeared.

In the past, during major events, some parts of the Silesian Stadium had insufficient access when it comes to connections to mobile networks. Viewers, journalists and other people often had problems making calls or using the mobile internet. Thanks to the new system installed in these areas, the situation will change completely.

“We want the Silesian Stadium to be a modern facility in many respects, we also want the most modern solutions for wireless communication systems. First of all, we decided to strengthen the signal in the hospitality and competition zone within the eastern tribune, as well as in the business zone on the 30th western grandstand sector. In the future, we plan to expand signal strength throughout the facility, “says Krzysztof Klimosz, president of the board of the Silesian Stadium.

Distributed Antenna System (DAS) is a system that increases network capacity, which is usually difficult to ensure using standard technical solutions. Antennas are installed in key locations and limited to the smallest dimensions, so as to blend in with the landscape and not interfere with the architectural order. However, they increase the availability and comfort of using wireless cell phones by users.

“This is the first such solution in Poland and one of the first in Europe. The client set us a task to do in extremely ambitious time. I am glad that Emitel specialists proved to be a reliable and upcoming match of the Polish national team within the League of Nations will be played on the most modern wireless stadium in our country – says the president of the board Emitel S.A. Andrzej Kozłowski

Emitel made the project and installation in record time, just a few weeks. The system is available to users of all cellular networks.
