    AT&T has brought in a COW (Cell On Wheels) at times in the past to alleviate the bandwidth issue. That’s the quick fix. Something more permanent will have to be done.
    This was done many times during the significant uptick of attendance during the Hud years. When I picked up my phone to check scores Saturday and basically had no mobile data, I knew this was not the case this game.

    as far as supply I can see issues this week with issues restocking, I know places in my area of MS that cant get many food items that are normally simple orders. As far as the cell issue the people talking about cell booster stations etc, all of those type of items are in SE Louisiana keeping the cells running in areas like Houma and bayou areas where the towers were destroyed by IDA. So before I go to _____ing to much I'll wait and see what it all looks like once some of the SE Louisiana issues start to be relieved.

    Good perspective to help understand the situation.

    Absolutely right. Since we weren't really affected we seem to lose sight of our needy friends to the east. Excellent observation.

    The problem is not fiber or anything else. All of the major carriers have towers in the area that provide service to Cajun Field. The issue is bandwidth and simultaneous users.

    My suggestion would be to use the light poles as a small cell that would provide service back to a Hub Site for service. It would allow more users and more bandwidth. By using the light poles at Cajun Field you would be able to provide service to all of UL's athletic venues.

    An example of this on a larger scale would be at Texas A&M, we installed over 100 small cells to provide coverage at their football games. Now it is not cheap, but it is effective.

    If their POS systems are relying on cellular networks, then that is the issue. I don't see why every concession stand area does not have a dedicated fiber ONT + private WiFi access point (via Ubiquiti device). The cost of getting Cox/LUS to do that in a week would probably pay for itself during one game.

    Then you could bring in third party food vendors and allow them to join to that private WiFi network as well.

    Yes, let's remember that a lot of these food/staff shortages are due to covid and the storm. I also had not thought about Ida and it's impact on the cell issue, which I am sure played a big part of our issues.

    Yeah, I am not sure how their POS is working. I was responding more to the cell service. I agree, they should be on a private network, and that is a straightforward fix.
