Vodafone deploys 4G antenna aboard boat for Amsterdam Sail

Thursday 20 August 2015 | 10:17 CET | News
Vodafone Netherlands has deployed a 4G mast aboard a boat for the Sail event in Amsterdam. The antenna can rotate 360 degrees to ensure connection with the transmission network regardless of the boat's movement. The operator said it's testing the technology for the first time at Sail to see whether it can help improve mobile network performance. Vodafone said it's increased capacity 50 percent with the boat and extra antennas around the Amsterdam harbour where Sail is taking place. It also boosted capacity on antennas throughout the city where many visitors are expected.
