American Tower’s DAS Network Deployment at Daytona International Speedway

Mobile Sports Report highlighted American Tower's partnership with SOLiD and the DAS network at the Daytona National Speedway.

"How’s this for a construction and deployment challenge: building a cellular distributed antenna system (DAS) inside a large, sprawling race track venue – even when you know the whole place is going to be undergoing construction for three-plus years.

While the so-called “Daytona Rising” project was a visual hit for this year’s big race, behind the scenes the companies building and deploying the DAS have had a different challenge – keeping fans connected wirelessly throughout the long construction phases, a task that included multiple deployments and re-deployments of equipment as structures were torn down and replaced.”
