Dallas Team Heads Up Wireless Project For New Kentucky Arena



Dallas, TX, October 23, 2009—Telecommunications Properties Inc. has been contracted by the Louisville Arena Authority to oversee design, installation, and management of a state-of-the-art in-building wireless system for the new sports arena complex now in development.

The authority board contacted TPI when the technical issue of cellular transmission quality emerged as a problem requiring special expertise. Construction materials interfere with signals creating cut-outs and distortions of sound. For arena patrons, mobile phone interference is an annoyance, but in cases of emergency, “first-responder” communications is a vital public safety matter.

A sub-set of emerging solutions—called “distributed antenna systems” (DAS)—is in constant development by telecommunications providers. But the management of such a project requires more than conventional vendor contracting. Texas-based TPI has performed countless DAS installations over the years as value-added outsource, and demonstrated an on-staff capability that won the LAA contract.

“For the duration of the Louisville project, we’ll be acting as a virtual extension of the Arena Authority,” said Jimmy Chiles, president of TPI. “We are honored and excited to accept the in-building wireless responsibility from the folks in Kentucky,” Chiles added.

TPI will help sort out and select sub-contractors, and oversee quality assurances among all related technology providers. TPI has installed and manages infrastructural telecommunications for properties in Dallas, Chicago, Philadelphia, Atlanta, San Francisco, and Houston. The new Dallas Cowboy Stadium is a TPI client.
