Headquartered in Irvine, CA, Horizon Communications provides telecommunications infrastructure for large stadiums and arena to meet this need. Apart from temporary venues, Horizon also sets up network installations for resorts, conference centers, hotels, and office environments. The company designs and installs the latest wireless technologies, Distributed Antenna systems (DAS), and WiFi without compromising on the location architecture and its aesthetics. However, for sports stadiums, this is a challenge. As owners are increasingly investing on accentuating the visual brilliance of stadiums with glass facades and fatidic structural designs, planning the installation of a wireless system without compromising the designs is an arduous as well as an innovative task. DeGraw points out that deploying state-of-the-art wireless communication system is a work of art. “Through a creative approach, we design the high-density Wi-Fi installation in multiple locations within a stadium without disrupting the structuring, and at the same time meeting the requirements of the venue.”
In addition, Horizon moves a step ahead by helping stadium owners to exploit profound commercial opportunities for enhancing fan engagement.
“As a single technology partner, we aim to integrate with all technicalities in a sports arena,” states DeGraw. Horizon has further proved a nonpareil expertise in the field by installing robust networks in some of the most complex arenas. For instance, Horizon was able to deliver fast and high density Wi-Fi coverage for over 50,000 fans, very recently, for one of the largest Baseball grounds in San Francisco.

In contrast to its competitors, Horizon reduces the cost of installing Wi-Fi networks for large spaces through the policy of monetization. Going forward, Horizon Communications envisions strategizing the monetization policy at a more advanced level for bringing national advertisers to a number of venues at the same time.
