Overview

The Minnesota State Fair is the 2nd largest state fair in the United States, attracting nearly 1.8 million visitors each year.  With nearly 200,000 people accessing data within a 320 acre area every day, the Minnesota State Fair produces an extremely large mobile data challenge.  

Challenge

The Minnesota State Fair produces an extremely large mobile data challenge.  Fairgoers routinely share their fair experience via social media and text messages.  The previous system was not designed not support the cellular data demands of hundreds of thousands of people that flock to the Minnesota State Fair Midway each August.

In addition to consumer data access, all public safety radio systems used at the fair rely on the State Fair’s data infrastructure.  Minnesota State Fair fire, EMT, and police departments all rely on the system if an emergency arises.

With the quantity of devices growing exponentially, coupled with the continuous usage of data on those devices, Minnesota State Fair leadership identified they needed a solution to their data problem.

The 2nd Largest Distributed Antenna System In The Midwest

With thousands of people and businesses demanding mobile data during the Minnesota State Fair, a distributed antenna system (DAS) made perfect sense to accommodate the data demands of fairgoers.
