The Boingo DAS network will bring best-in-class cellular coverage to the property, and enable seamless and secure mobile connectivity for staff, players and guests.
“Guests of Omni PGA Frisco Resort demand a fast and reliable network,” said Brent Lessing, chief information officer for Omni Hotels & Resorts. “We are confident that Boingo is the right partner to not only design and install the commercial cellular DAS, but also provide ongoing support and enhancements to the system to meet the ever-changing cellular landscape.”
Boingo is one of the largest DAS providers in the U.S. and works with world-class properties like Omni Hotels & Resorts to deliver wireless connectivity that is built for the 5G era. Boingo networks are deployed with a neutral host approach, which accommodates LTE and 5G solutions from all Tier One carriers under one managed platform. At Omni PGA Frisco Resort, Boingo networks will cover more than 510 guest rooms and resort amenities including retail, dining and event spaces.
“Omni PGA Frisco Resort will be the new go-to destination for events, golf tournaments and leisure,” said Boingo CEO Mike Finley. “Such a state-of-the-art property requires state-of-art connectivity to meet growing mobile demands—from guests using 5G smartphones to staff managing operations on tablets to players relying on wearable technology to track their performance—and Boingo is there to deliver. We’re proud to be selected by Omni to manage their cellular needs, ensuring connectivity is secure and reliable throughout the resort.”
Working in partnership with the city of Frisco, Omni PGA Frisco Resort will welcome the local community to enjoy the facility, granting high school students access to practice areas, hosting district tournaments and providing educational and career opportunities.
