  • Description:

  • Requirement:

    Additional Coverage to Include the Latest LTE and HSPA+ Requirements

  • Solution:

    Coverage Incorporating LTE and HSPA+ for Vodafone Hutchinson Australia


The Docklands Stadium (also known as the Etihad Stadium after the main sponsor) is a multi-purpose venue with a capacity of over 53 thousand spectators located in Melbourne, Victoria. It is the home of the Australia Football League and has hosted the Rugby World Cup, the Rugby League World Cup and Commonwealth Games events.

Optus already had an In Building system to cover the stadium but it only covered five sectors for all the seating and car park areas and was not compliant with LTE at 1800MHz. CAM was commissioned by Vodafone Hutchinson Australia (VHA) to upgrade the system to 15 sectors with ten allocated to the seating areas.
