Super Bowl plans to handle 30,000 Wi-Fi users at once—and sniff out “rogue devices”

During the Super Bowl, the network will be able to handle up to 30,000 simultaneous connections, which should be enough. At last year’s Super Bowl in Indianapolis, Wi-Fi from 604 access points supported 8,260 simultaneous connections at its peak, while 12,946 attendees were on the Wi-Fi at some point during the game. 225GB of data was downloaded and 145GB uploaded, with peaks of 75Mbps down and 42Mbps up. (We’re told the cell network for all carriers at last year’s Super Bowl handled another 560GB of data total, including downloads and uploads.) Usage is expected to be higher this year, but it’s impossible to predict exactly how much it will increase.
