UBS Arena needed cabling and connectivity solutions that would support sophisticated sound systems, a 5G network, a distributed antenna system (DAS), New York’s largest scoreboard and two levels of high-resolution LED ribbon boards.
The venue’s network infrastructure needed to support these types of connected technologies as well.
The wireless network would need to support the seamless connection of tens of thousands of devices in the venue’s completely cashless environment.
UBS Arena is made for music and built for hockey. The venue will host about 150 events annually, with clear sightlines and premier acoustics from every seat. Opening its doors for the first time in November 2021, the $1.1 billion, 18,000-seat arena is the new home of the National Hockey League’s New York Islanders, replacing the shuttered Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Boasting high-end VIP suites and clubs, outdoor terraces, eight ice-view bars and a high-resolution scoreboard, UBS Arena’s goal is to be one of the nation’s most prestigious and inviting entertainment venues.
To create safe and exciting experiences, UBS Arena’s fan-first technology relies on Belden cabling and connectivity solutions.
Digital Electricity™ Cables were used to support the DAS that connect base transceiver station head-end equipment to the RFs/remote radio units placed around the venue
Working with one partner for a complete infrastructure solution—including more than 6,700 cables—helped keep the project on track and streamline installation.
Thanks to Belden’s excellent distribution partners, thousands of cuts of data, IT, AV and security cables were completed for installers in order to make installation faster and easier.
