Verizon staking its reputation on great Super Bowl coverage
Verizon's logo adorns one of the entrances into MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, and an even larger sign hangs inside. If there are any hiccups or if coverage is flawless, consumers have a large red sign to blame or give credit to.
Verizon's distributed antenna system is a mini network of antennas designed to boost coverage in large venues or indoor areas including malls and stadiums. There are more than 550 Verizon antennas in the building.
Verizon's cell sites grab the signal from the cellular network and put it out through the distributed antenna system that's lined throughout the stadium. Cell sites for all the other major carriers are located elsewhere around the stadium.
