Harpa Concert Hall & Conference Center

Reykjavik, Iceland

The Problem

Home to the Iceland Symphony Orchestra and the Icelandic Opera, Harpa Hall is a stunning example of modern architecture in central Reykjavik. The facility hosts hundreds of concerts, conferences and other events per year and has received more than five million visitors.

Project Details

Harpa’s government owners sought to ensure commercial in-building wireless service and also provide thorough TETRA coverage for emergency services. Harpa’s integrator partner, IAV, chose Zinwave’s UNItivity in-building wireless solution to meet these needs.

In the short term, Zinwave’s true wideband design and all-fiber infrastructure meant it could easily accommodate all bands, services and network operators and made it the most time- and cost-effective installation.

In the long term, Harpa wanted to be able to add undetermined services after the initial installation. Zinwave was the obvious choice as additional carriers and bands can be added to the existing infrastructure without significant cost or disruption.
