Super Bowl 50 Puts Tech in its Starting Lineup–Kate Edwards

This article discussed the priority of keeping fans electronically connected at this year’s Super Bowl. “High Tech Football” seems like a relatively new concept, considering the technological advancements and shifts in lifestyles during the past few decades. Fans are experiencing athletic events completely differently now than ever before, and stadiums are doing their best to adjust to that new standard. A panel discussion on Wednesday night with SAP and the host team, the 49ers pointed out that this Super Bowl, in less than three weeks, will be the most technological game ever played. According to the article, in order to support the large amount of technological devices in use, the stadium has 400 miles of copper cable and fiber to control the data, along with 1,200 wifi access points. Worries of the panelists for malfunctions are at a minimum, as proved by the response “the weather” to the question of what they are most worried about.
