Atlantic Coast Communications provided installation materials and labor to integrate Panasonic’s Everest™ Ultra-High Density Wi-Fi system at the 1.7msf Lincoln Financial Field. ACC’s Scope of Work included demolition of existing infrastructure, and installation of 653 Everest access points and the associated 1306 Category 6 data drops, conduit, and secondary steel required to complete the project. The work was performed over a four month period, and was completed in July of 2017. ACC performed directly for Panasonic Enterprise Solutions Company.
Compared to traditional Wi-Fi solutions, Panasonic’s Everest solution offers significantly greater performance compared to legacy systems. The Everest system is the first Wi-Fi solution engineered from the ground up to overcome the challenges of serving tens of thousands of fans simultaneously in ultra-high-density sports and entertainment environments. The installation has set records for data transfer at Lincoln Financial Field.
The work included installation of painted rigid conduit to conceal cabling in seating bowl areas. Installation and strategic aiming of all Everest Antennas were performed by ACC staff under guidance provided by Everest engineers. ACC partnered with Superior Scaffolding for all stationary and swing scaffolding required to reach the areas inaccessible from traditional man lift equipment. The work was completed on schedule and within budget, resulting in both Panasonic and the Philadelphia Eagles becoming satisfied customers.
