The smart, safe, sustainable and connected stadium is a one-of-a-kind sports and entertainment complex, profiled by Forbes as one of the “13 Game-Changing NFL Stadiums.” The stadium is outfitted with the latest technology and advanced solutions from Johnson Controls and its partners, and is the first visible sign of why the Johnson Controls Hall of Fame Village is “The Most Inspiring Place on Earth."
This sports and entertainment venue boasts a future-ready, state-of-the-art network infrastructure, ensuring the systems implemented within are not only smart and sustainable today, but support any future innovations. In addition, the integrated, data-enabled smart building technology solutions deployed in the stadium are designed to turn data into insights and insights into actions, delivering enhanced fan engagement, greater operational efficiency, enhanced security, and sustainability. Thanks to an explosion of data and the development of technology to collect and understand it, buildings like Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium can come “alive,” automatically responding to the environment, the needs of fans, and the ongoing requirements of efficiency and sustainability.
