Barclays Promises State-of-the-Art Wireless To Meet Fans Expectations

To say wireless coverage at NBA arenas is spotty is being kind. They weren't built for it and the nooks and crannies of such large spaces, filled with thick concrete walls, is not an ideal environment. But Barclays Center was built with wireless in mind and Tuesday, the team announced it's chosen a company to design, install and operate the arena network.

ExteNet Systems of Illinois will set up a a Distributed Antenna System (DAS) network in the newly constructed arena that will meet "rising expectations in fan demand", says the company. The Nets will also be heavily dependent on wireless in its basketball operations with video and data feeds at the arena. Also, as part of its deal with the Nets and Barclays, MetroPCS will have charging stations around the arena.
