Creating the Ultimate Fan Experience

The Atlanta Braves realize a vision, developing a mixed-use campus and network geared to optimizing analytics

In 2018, the Atlanta Braves debuted The Battery Atlanta, a 1.5 million-square-foot mixed-use development, surrounding the playing field with high-end retail, dining options, entertainment, and more. The sprawling “bigger than a ballpark” campus is underpinned by a network purpose-built for connectivity. It’s essentially a 23-acre engine for driving in-depth analytics. The Battery’s Layer 1 elemental connectivity means that the organization has the capability to tap into individual fan interactivity at any given moment. The network’s powerful analytics and insights offer unprecedented opportunities to optimize operations on every level.
