Panasonic Introduces Transformational Ultra-High Density Wi-Fi Solution for Sports and Entertainment

Everest ™ Network Solutions to Improve Connected Guest Experiences in Stadiums

DENVER, April 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Panasonic Enterprise Solutions Company, a division of Panasonic Corporation of North America, introduced a new Wi-Fi solution intended to transform the connected fan experience in large sports and entertainment venues. Everest™ Network Solutions is engineered from the ground up to overcome the challenges of connecting tens of thousands of devices in ultra-high density environments.

"With Everest, we are literally changing the fan experience," said Jim Doyle, President, Panasonic Enterprise Solutions Company. "Ultra-high density wireless presents a significant set of engineering challenges.  Our system offers increased throughput, the greatest number of simultaneous engagements per access point and a significant reduction in hardware and installation costs."

Everest requires only one third the wireless hardware of traditional legacy systems. Everest access points mount on structures rather than under seats, making it much quicker and cost-effective to install.  The Basecamp™ user control interface provides easy, intuitive system setup, management and analytics.  The system can serve as many as 500 simultaneous client engagements from one access point.  Everest has been extensively tested in sold-out arenas, stadiums and major convention centers across the country.

"Panasonic's solution offers clients strong improvement in performance, finally opening the doors to a richer guest experience, while simultaneously reducing the total cost of ownership," said Danny Abelson, Vice President of Connectivity at Panasonic Enterprise Solutions Company. 

Everest access points feature four 802.11 ac Wave 2 compliant radios, doubling the wireless resources compared to conventional enterprise-class offerings. Everest pairs these radio resources with patented, highly directional, software-controlled antenna systems, creating the ideal conditions for effective MIMO and MU-MIMO communications. Components are housed in an integral IP67-rated enclosure. 

Leading independent telecommunications industry expert Miercom, performed rigorous comparative tests, comparing Everest's performance one-to-one with access points from several well-known industry players. 

"Miercom is pleased to have reviewed the first-ever true four-radio 802.11ac Wave II Wi-Fi access points intended for high density environments-the Everest solution by Panasonic", said Rob Smithers, CEO of Miercom.  "We conducted the tests over a three-month period, comparing these to AP's from well-established Wi-Fi manufacturers, and found the subject access points to outperform the competing vendors' products in every test we conducted. Our independent testing confirmed Panasonic's four-radio solution hands down provides the greatest scalability and performance for high density environments compared to all of the dual band two radio solutions on the market."
