ExteNet Systems, one of JSA’s newest clients, and the leading privately held owner of LTE/5G and converged communications infrastructure solutions announced that they will provide Circuit of The Americas (COTA) with new 5G cellular and a Private Wireless Network infrastructure. As hosts of Formula 1® racing, the 1,500-acre world class venue in Austin, Texas is home to   a complete, integrated sports and entertainment experience, hosting world-class motorsports racing and music concerts since 2012.  In this deal renewal, ExteNet will be expanding both cellular coverage and capacity throughout the complex, enhancing COTA’s radio network coverage, as well as upgrading existing fiber infrastructure in order to support the latest networking technologies available.  

“COTA provides their fans significant connectivity at their racetrack, and our planned improvements will increase the ability to support faster downloads, as well as an increasing number of connected devices on-site,” said Monnie McGaffigan, ExteNet Systems CRO. “Over 400,000 visitors attend Formula 1 Grand Prix®, and we want to ensure our infrastructure supports their loyal fans!”

COTA is a unique project for ExteNet. Plans required fast and reliable connectivity with strategically placed nodes and antennas. “Our facility has developed beyond a world-class racetrack into an entertainment powerhouse, with the growing number of visitors and mobile devices on the property requiring an even more powerful network to provide seamless processes and services,” said Mark Pannes, Circuit of The Americas President for Strategy and Corporate Growth. “As a longtime partner, ExteNet has continuously proven their capabilities are among the most innovative, and their infrastructure is unobtrusive to the fan experience.”
