Boldyn Networks and ASM Global redefine the connected fan experience with state-of-the-art converged network at Cowtown Coliseum

The network will feature 5G DAS, private CBRS, and Wi-Fi 6E

September 19, 2023 | Fort Worth, Texas

Fort Worth’s renowned Cowtown Coliseum, the site of Elvis Presley’s earliest concerts, the first-ever indoor arena in the country to host rodeos and the center of the National Historic District known as The Stockyards, will soon be equipped with state-of-the-art ubiquitous 5G coverage, further revolutionizing the guest experience at the iconic venue.

ASM Global, the world’s largest provider of live entertainment experiences; Stockyards Heritage Development Co., a partnership between Majestic Realty Co. and Hickman Investments; PBR (Professional Bull Riders), the world’s premier bull riding organization; and Boldyn Networks (Boldyn), a leading telecommunications infrastructure provider in the United States and globally, joined forces on this project in close collaboration with the City of Fort Worth. 

This deployment will be one of the live entertainment industry’s most technologically advanced and robust projects to date. It will not only seamlessly power applications like mobile ticket scanning, mobile Point of Sale (PoS) transactions, and mission critical voice communications, but also support new technologies and use cases, such as immersive AR/VR experiences, live video broadcast, real-time fan engagement applications, helmet cams, wireless roping chutes, and more, all while ensuring the architectural integrity and aesthetics of the venue are maintained.

“With thousands of fans flocking to the venue for each event, it’s critical to have a wireless connectivity backbone that provides an unrivaled and immersive connected experience,” said Jason Oberlander, chief commercial officer of ASM Global. This fuels our ability to enhance events for the record-setting millions of western sports and live entertainment fans who visit us annually from around the world.”

Boldyn’s US CEO Christos Karmis said, “We're committed to helping ASM Global revolutionize the fan experience at Cowtown Coliseum. Our industry-leading infrastructure enables 5G connectivity to deliver wireless coverage and capacity throughout the arena at one of Texas’ most notable venues. The deployment of all three networks sets a new benchmark for digital transformation at large-scale, historical venues. We are proud to be part of this project that supports Fort Worth's rich heritage.”

The technology showcase will feature an industry-leading multicarrier Distributed Antenna System (DAS), a private network utilizing Citizen Broadband Radio Service and Wi-Fi 6E— the latest iteration of Wi-Fi technology. Once complete, Boldyn’s network will be integrated with all major wireless carriers and provide ubiquitous 5G mobile coverage throughout the entire venue.
