Mobilitie was selected by joint venture partners, AEG & Southwest Value Partners, to deliver a best-in-class venue network designed to elevate the concert-going experience.
Leading US communications infrastructure provider Mobilitie, soon to be Boldyn Networks, will provide high-speed, ubiquitous 5G connectivity to Nashville Yards’ new, ultra-modern music venue as a result of a new partnership, brokered by AEG Global Partnerships. Located at the epicenter of the 18-acre mixed-use development, the planned 4,500-capacity concert hall will open at the end of 2024 and bring more intimate entertainment events to Nashville’s lively music scene.
Mobilitie’s innovative in-building Distributed Antenna System (DAS) network will support all 5G spectrum bands and major wireless carriers to provide a seamless and high-quality mobile connection throughout the venue. The connectivity will not only meet future wireless demands, but also allow for expanded digital initiatives, improved venue operations and enhanced communications capabilities for artists, fans, and staff.
“Thanks to the combined efforts of Mobilitie and AEG, the Nashville Yards music venue is poised to be one of the most technologically advanced of its kind,” said Cary Mack, Managing Partner for Southwest Value Partners. “We’re confident that the new venue network will bring Nashville residents an unparalleled connectivity experience and access to the very best Music City has to offer.”
“The live entertainment landscape is rapidly evolving, and our patrons expect a frictionless, reliable and secure mobile connection,” said Nick Baker, Chief Operating Officer, AEG Global Partnerships. “There was no question that Mobilitie would be our go-to partner for this project, given our long-term relationship and their proven track record and expertise in delivering industry-leading networks that are transforming the sports and entertainment industry. We look forward to strengthening our partnership by collaborating on this deployment and creating a fully connected space fit for a world-class music scene.”
Mobilitie’s state-of-the-art connectivity solutions continue to support some of the largest and most iconic sports and entertainment venues in the country, including previous projects in conjunction with AEG, such as T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas as well as Los Angeles’ Crypto.com Arena and its adjacent L.A.
