Mooove over Music and Tennis Fans, AT&T is Bringing in COWS to Boost Network Performance at Upcoming Festival and Open
MIAMI, March 19, 2015 – AT&T* is bringing in “super” COWs, or Cells on Wheels, for the upcoming big music festival and tennis tournament in Miami. Multi-beam technology gives the COWs their “super” status. The mobile cell sites will help accommodate the additional network traffic anticipated at the Bayfront Park and Crandon Park events.
AT&T often rolls in COWs for large crowd-drawing events that can generate a spike in network traffic. The additional capacity and coverage provided by a COW help bolster voice and mobile Internet performance at events.
“A key part of our goal to deliver an effortless customer experience is to provide an excellent wireless experience,” said AT&T Florida President Joe York. “These two annual events combined draw tens of thousands of spectators. The mobile cell sites we’ve set up at each location will help us provide a much better mobile Internet experience under those conditions.”
AT&T continues to drive innovation and investment in South Florida to deliver a great wireless experience. Last year, the company activated 37 cell sites and added extra capacity to another 480-plus sites to expand 4G LTE coverage and improve voice and data connectivity from Key West to Sebastian.
AT&T has the nation’s most reliable LTE network2 with the strongest LTE signal3.
