Prudential Center, the world-class sports and entertainment venue located in downtown Newark, New Jersey, has replaced its aging signal and communications infrastructure with an all-new signal routing and intercom backbone based on Riedel solutions. Riedel’s MediorNet real-time signal transport, processing, and routing technology is integrated with an Artist digital matrix intercom mainframe and Bolero wireless intercom to enable seamless and high-quality communications throughout the facility.
Opened in 2007, Prudential Center has been the home arena for the NHL’s New Jersey Devils, the Seton Hall University Pirates men’s basketball team, and more than 175 concerts, family shows, and special events each year. Known by fans as “The Rock,” the arena seats 16,500 for hockey games and almost 19,000 for basketball. The new Riedel solution replaces an intercom system that was original to Prudential Center and a router that had reached its end of life.
