|Aviva Stadium Dublin|
Case Study: Aviva Stadium Dublin
Project Purpose: Provision of complete cellular coverage and capacity (50,000) people) solution in the Aviva Stadium (Lansdowne Rd), for a consortium made up of O2 /Vodafone / Meteor / 3
Solution: Following a highly competitive international tender, the consortium awarded the design, installation and ongoing maintenance contract to Obelisk. Obelisk solution was to provide a state of the art passive and active fibre optic hybrid solution covering both GSM1800 and UMTS bands. The system has been designed form the outset to cater for peaks in capacity and to cater for future bandwidth growth. Obelisk selected Radio Frequency Systems Ltd (RFS) as a technology partner as their ClearFill Space2© solution offered a flexible multi-band, multi-operator system that could solve the demanding coverage and capacity requirements of the Aviva stadium.
Obelisk Impact: The ability of Obelisk to act as prime contractor and their proven record of implementing systems for multiple operators was a key factor in winning the contract. The combination of a passive solution for part of the stadium combined with an active solution for the remainder provided the best of both worlds from a cost / performance view point.
