Radio Network Solutions (RNS) recently installed Africa’s first ever Matsing Lens Antenna at the Newlands Cricket Stadium in Cape Town, South Africa.

With a capacity of 25,000 people and a breath-taking backdrop of Table Mountain and Devil’s Peak, the Stadium will now also possess state-of-the-art technology.
“The Matsing Lens Antenna holds industry records for data capacity throughput. It was used in the United States for the 2017 presidential inauguration,” says RNS sales director, Richard Hill. “We are excited to bring world-class technology to one of our very own stadiums, allowing Newlands’ visitors to enjoy seamless connection during matches.”
