Valentine’s Day is traditionally a day of hearts and roses, but there was no
love lost between the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals when they
faced off against each other in Super Bowl LVI. More than 70,000 fans
witnessed the game in the USD $6 billion SoFi stadium, which provided them with a new
experience in hyper-connectivity with some help from NXP smart tech. As a
leading player in connectivity, our solutions were everywhere.
As the last whistle was blown, the Los Angeles Rams won the day against the
Cincinnati Bengals by 23-20, but the true winners were the fans at the
stadium, who revelled in the glory of a true connection with their teams, and
their tech, from before the start of the game to after the finish. They were treated to
high-resolution images on the 70,000 sq ft, 360-degree dual-sided ‘Infinity
Screen’ from Samsung, as well as full 5G augmented reality in ‘Dreamground’
on their Galaxy phones.

While the Rams and the Bengals fought for victory, around the stadium,
thousands of fans recorded their favorite moments posting selfies and socials
to friends and followers. At the same time, others used their smartphones at
concession stands for hotdogs, pretzels, pizza and beer. With such a
condensed demand for data from every type of device and every carrier network
in the U.S., seamless connectivity was essential. This was all made possible
thanks to the help of NXP’s Wi-Fi 6 solutions, with more than 2,500 wireless
access points, one of the largest ever at a sports venue, also with a 5G
distributed antenna system (DAS) that covers licensed spectrum bands between
600 MHz and 6 GHz.
