Wagener – Holland‘s National Hockey Stadium Relies on Next Generation Multi-Channel WiFi Technology
Ottawa, Canada / TheNewswire / October 2, 2017 — Edgewater Wireless Systems Inc. (YFI; TSX.V), a wireless innovation company and the developer of multi-channel WiFi3(TM) technology, today announced the company has deployed the world’s first stadium network powered by WiFi3. The Wagener Stadium wireless network was deployed using Edgewater Wireless aera(TM) access points powered by WiFi3(TM) and was installed in conjunction with the start of the 2017 European Hockey Championships .
WiFi3 at Wagener Stadium
Originally built in 1938, Wagener Stadium recently underwent a major facelift. As part of the renovation, a new main stadium bleacher stand was built to increase seating capacity for the 2017 European Hockey Championship. The newly installed WiFi3(TM) powered High-Density network provides complete coverage to all premium guest seating in the stadium, as well as, stadium offices, pressbox and hospitality facilities throughout the building.
The newly installed stadium wireless network, powered by WiFi3 has capacity to connect over 2,000 premium guests and seamlessly provides WiFi service to stadium personnel and stadium operations. The project was lead by Optima Networks (www.optimanetworks.be) and TripleA Networks (http://www.tripleanetworks.nl/en/). The companies worked closely with Edgewater Wireless to deploy a high-density network utilizing twelve aera4 Access Points (AP) powered by WiFi3. Each aera4 wideband AP delivers multiple, concurrent channels from a single WiFi radio maximizing frequency reuse in high density deployments while minimizing performance killing interference. Equipped with PowerZoning(TM) and MESHD(TM) capabilities, aera access points deliver the maximum quality of service to the highest density of users.
"Our reseller partners are always looking for the best possible way to service their customers and when Triple A approached us with this high-density Wagener Stadium wireless network, we knew WiFi3 was immediately the best solution." said Erik Couwels, Managing Director Optima Networks "High data demands in stadiums make it difficult the create a stable network, that won’t frustrate users with limited throughput. With WiFi3, guest attendees, media, stadium operations personnel and championship officials all benefited from stable, fast connections to the new wireless network. Relying on Edgewater Wireless aera series products, Triple A and Optima have deployed the Europe’s first next generation WiFi3 stadium network."
The Wagener Stadium in Amsterdam is Holland’s national field hockey stadium, and owned and operated by the KNHB – Dutch Hockey Association. It is the home field for Holland’s national men’s and women’s teams, who have won a combined 5 Olympic Gold Medals 13 World Cups, 2 World Leagues, 12 European Championships, and 14 Champions Trophies. Field hockey is one of the largest team sports in the Netherlands second only to football
"Since we started selling Edgewater Wireless’s WiFi3 products we have been impressed by the technology and the approach Edgewater has taken to redefine high density WiFi. Using Edgewater’s aera3 access points we have seen great results at Wagener." said Ben Freriks, Project Manager at TripleA networks "Getting WiFi to work well in high density environments (a stadium is perhaps one of the best examples) is not a simple installation. Using WiFi3 we have delivered better performance and QoS with half of the number of access points vs what was possible with other vendors’ technology. We’re now showcasing Wagener Stadium as a real-world reference for our customers to come and experience a wireless network powered by WiFi3."
Edgewater’s WiFi3(TM) is the best Wi-Fi solution for carriers, service providers and systems integrators in high-density WiFi applications. In high-density stadiums, WiFi network operators, are challenged to deliver great WiFi service to guests and users without having to double or triple the number of access points required – adding exponential costs to installing and operating the network. Edgewater’s patented WiFi technology mitigates adjacent and co-channel interference to enable up to 6 concurrent channels on a single WiFi access point which means network operators can deploy fewer access points to deliver the highest Quality of Service to guests and users.
"Wagener Stadium is the first stadium in Europe to install a wireless network powered exclusively by WiFi3 technology. WiFi3 was developed to deliver better Quality of Service and Performance with few access points which is what the teams at Optima and Triple A have accomplished for premium guest users at the stadium." said Andrew Skafel, President and CEO of Edgewater Wireless

About Optima Networks
Optima Networks was founded end of 1999 by Benoit Bergers, in order to build distribution of high-end technology products of what now is known as the company MRV, in Belgium.
These products, and the technological developments they were the result of, required such a specialized knowledge and experience, that none of the distributors at that moment were able to deliver. Quite rapidly the range of products of MRV was extended with AXIS CD-towers and Allied Telesis switches and media convertors, to grow ultimately to the product portfolio Optima offers today.
Optima Networks also invested in personnel, and is proud to service the market with collaborators with a proven service-record in the Value-Added Distribution
