Mobile Radio Coverage for Commerzbank Arena

To ensure sufficient reserves for surfing and transmission of videos and pictures for the fans during top-matches in the Bundesliga (German Federal League), the whole mobile communications network of Deutsche Telekom in the Commerzbank Arena has been modernized.

As we are experienced and specialized in radio coverage, FMBE has been engaged for the extension of the existing in-house mobile communications supply and in the modernization to LTE 2600 advanced (Los2).

The challenge in this project was the extremely short available construction time of 7 weeks, numerous interruptions or limitations of the works due to events in the rented lounges and constructional renovation in parts of the stadium happening at the same time.

Thanks to the close and focused cooperation with the technical division of the stadium management, to a professional project management by FMBE and to the well interacting team of experienced service technicians, the ambitious project schedule could be kept and the network has been handed over successfully to the broadband-hungry fans at the beginning of the Bundesliga season in Frankfurt.
