Look under your seat, you just won free internet! WiFi access points are peppered throughout the stadium's bowl -- about one for every 100 seats.
There are over 600 boxes in the bowl itself, with an additional 600 filling out the rest of the stadium. The bandwidth the boxes pipe in is courtesy of Comcast Business, who partially hosted our tour of the stadium.
Levi's Stadium's 1,200 access points aren't just there for the sake of your sideline Twitter commentary -- the stadium has a dedicated app that delivers instant replays, live game footage, parking passes and even to-your-seat food delivery.
All this data isn't easy to maintain, however: the stadium is supported by 48 small server rooms and connected to one larger data center, pictured here.
The stadium's Brocade network supports the entirety of its IP infrastructure -- including all of its video content. There isn't a coax cable to be found.
The stadium can handle 40GB/s of traffic, but it's not all dedicated to fan WiFi. Some of it is needed for IP and security systems.
Naturally, the sever room is extremely loud -- the hum of fans drown out all but the loudest of conversation.
There's a game monitor in the data center, of course.
The Levi's Stadium app may offer on-demand instant replays, but fans can watch highlights the old fashioned way, too.
The 49ers camera of choice is <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2012/11/28/sony-unveils-price-for-pmw-f55-and-pmw-f5-cinaalta-4k-camcorders/">Sony's PMW-F55 CinaAlta 4K camcorder</a> -- they have ten of them on hand for recording game highlights, interviews and in-house content. <br />
You’ll watch that footage on the stadium’s enormous LED screens, positioned on either end of the bowl. Each measure 200 wide by 48 feet high, but only one outputs sound — a concession made to limit noise pollution to a local residential neighborhood. <br />
Most of the stadium's 400 miles of cabling can only be seen in employee areas, hidden in rafters between water pipes and support hardware.
Look carefully however, and cables can be found in guest areas too -- the stadium's WiFi access points require 70 miles of cabling on their own, and the stadium couldn't hide it all.
Levi's Stadium's IP TV infrastructure is supported by a state of the art control room.
An iPad serves as an easy-access level control console.
It took all of our self control not to play with these buttons, but we resisted: who knows what we could accidentally put on the big screen?
Almost every station in the control room features a touchscreen, which can be used to organize clips and queues or to manually draw highlights on a replay.
Levi's Stadium's IP TV rack has some pretty snazzy looking covers.
Remember how we said all of the stadium's TV systems were IP based? We meant it. Thousands of cables run to TVs throughout the facially -- but this rack is reserved exclusively for the devices in the control room.
The stadium's "green roof" is a 27,000 square foot nod to sustainability. Its plants rely on reclaimed water -- lets hope they fair better than the <a href="http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/eye-on-football/24671559/photo-levis-stadium-sod-fails-after-one-game-49ers-tearing-it-out">stadium's turfgrass</a>.
The "green roof" isn't without its own technological accessories, however. Satellite dishes, lighting rigs and solar panels can be found on the garden's outskirts.
Bridges leading to the stadium's parking lots are outfitted with solar panels, too.
Football, an enormous screen and hundreds of hotspots. What else could a sports geek ask for?
Levi's is so proud of the stadium's infrastructure, it has its own place in the bowl's construction mural.
