Divide and conquer with network prioritisation like the organisers at The Beerincider Experience.
They divided their WiFi into:
1) A secure production network for ticketing & back-of-house; 2) A vendor network for the @square POS devices; 3) A separate branded guest network with a branded login screen for sponsors to customise (and pay for).
It means lower priority devices like guests’ phones can’t interfere with the most important devices’ access to bandwidth at peak production times.
What a treat to provide managed internet for the @mcachicago ArtEdge gala fundraiser & "The Colour Is" live shows, connecting their essential production devices and enabling attendees to bid and donate online.
We can’t get enough of the photos from the events – so much juicy colour in one place. Hope you like them too.
And that, my friends, is how to set up an Express 5G at a packed outdoor event.
Kevin from Igigo Communications sent this setup snap from the Atlanta Jazz Festival. With up to 60,000 people about, Kevin chose this setup method to get both elevation for the antennas inside the unit, and to keep the unit secured and out of the way.
We ❤️ this nifty use of tent frame for height plus high-rated cables and zip ties for stability and safety.
There was a lot riding on the internet connection (and Mac’s IT department) at the @liebherrmining All Staff Meeting 2022. With 500+ global team mates gathering on-site for their first in-person catch up in years, the cloud-based systems just had to work.
And they did!
Thanks for the kind words, Mac. They’re music to our eyes.
Saphia ("saf-yah") joins us as our US-wide Operations Co-ordinator, based in Miami, Florida and overseeing our LA warehouse ops.
Several of you will recognise Saphia as the former Field Operations Manager with our mates at @eventbrite, where she lead 50+ major event tech deployments across the USA at some of the country’s biggest events.
Saphia has been a wonderful @popupwifi client for years, so you can imagine our excitement when she answered our call-out for crew.
We hope you love working with her as much as we do. ❤️
