Earthquakes Stadium Gets Avaya’s Name & Technology – Andrew Carlsson

While the San Francisco 49ers have the crown jewel Levi’s Stadium in the National Football League in terms of groundbreaking technology, a place not that far away has also made a huge technological advancement. In San Jose, California, the San Jose Earthquakes of Major League Soccer will have a new decked out home in that of Avaya Stadium. Some of the new technological advancements being made at the stadium include new LED lighting throughout, and boasts the most LED lighting of any stadium of similar stature. According to the team’s website, “A two-acre fan zone and double-sided video board in the new stadium will provide the best possible fan experience in the league”. The new double sided scoreboard will have the ability to relay in game analysis of players as well as several different reply angles. While all these things are technologically beneficial to the stadium, the greatest advancement comes from somewhere else. Avaya Stadium is the first cloud enabled stadium, meaning that the technological capabilities that power the facility are handled off site by Santa Clara-based software company Avaya. This is a huge advancement, as the new system will allow for seamless connections over the network, running faster and smoother than that of an in – stadium system. This is important because it will allow fans and spectators to share their experiences over social media fluidly and without delay, improving the overall fan experience and meeting the ever growing demand of having enough space for fans to interact.
