Over the next two years, an engineering team from the San Diego-based tech company will help the league go stadium by stadium and assess the state of Wi-Fi and cellular coverage and help plan improvements.

“Collaborating with an industry leader such as Qualcomm is a critical step in understanding and executing on the engineering challenges to achieve scalable, reliable in-venue connectivity,” Major League Baseball Advanced Media CTO Joe Inzerillo said in a statement.

Baseball is also working with T-Mobile to modernize, among other things, the phones that connect the bullpens to the dugouts.
