Kings Park Stadium sinks its teeth into new technology

Kings Park Stadium, the home of the Sharks, now boasts a new state-of-the-art Matsing Lens Antenna that was supplied and installed by Radio Network Solutions (RNS).

“This multi-sector multi-band Lens antenna boasts industry records for data capacity throughput,” explains RNS sales director, Richard Hill. “Due to its advanced technology in wireless connectivity, Stadium visitors will now enjoy seamless connectivity while cheering and supporting their favourite sport teams.”

Locally known as "The Shark Tank", the Stadium is currently the eighth-largest stadium in South Africa with a capacity of 52,000. It is also the third sports stadium to benefit from RNS’ Lens technology in the country.

RF Lens antennas provide numerous unique advantages over the traditional array or ‘panel’ antennas, particularly in providing significantly higher capacity, multiple individual beams, individual tilt and multi-band coverage from a single antenna. Matsing Antennas provide the highest efficiency and-capacity multi-beam base-station solution and utilises the latest RF lens technology.

A RF Lens explained

A RF Lens, much the same as an optical lens, forms or bends Electromagnetic waves through refraction. It creates a high-gain signal from the spherical lens by placing a single radiating element on the surface of spherical RF Luneburg Lens.

RF Lens Multi-beam Antenna design benefits

Numerous radiating elements can be positioned around the same sphere to produce multiple independent and high-gain beams, utilising the same lens. This allows Lens based antennas to perform significantly better compared to the traditional array or dish antenna technology.

The RF Lens based antennas’ performance and capacity improvements include its ability to have multiple independent beams for high order sectorisation, its ultra-broadband coverage, as well as its high isolation between beams and individual beam tilt capabilities.

RNS is proud to be one of Africa’s most innovative and leading communications solutions suppliers. The company’s qualified team can design, implement and support wireless networks in any environment.

“The need for seamless wireless connectivity is increasing, and we are pleased that we are able to stand at the forefront of a new era of wireless communications,” elaborates Hill. “Designs are also in progress for other sporting venues in South Africa and we look forward to continue to offer excellence in every aspect of our offering.”
