From Bonnaroo to Small Business Expos:
Understanding Your Temporary Internet Service Needs
If Woodstock (the Bonnaroo of the 1970s) were to occur today, organizers would find themselves in a serious predicament; in the middle of a hay field in a rural portion of the New York Catskill Mountains with little to no internet. Even with a top of the line smartphone, reception is difficult in such remote surroundings. Status updates, selfies, and videos streaming would all fail, and they would have to deal with several upset customers.
An unprepared event planner falls into the same conundrum.
They must know in advance whether their venue provides wifi connectivity, or if they must supply it for their visiting clientele. From a rock concert to a software technology release, a strong internet connection can mean success or failure for your event. Issues that arise from the lack of connectivity can cause a consumer to rethink using your goods or service out of concern for its reliability.
Temporary Internet Event Planning 101
Planning for temporary or remote Internet connectivity is dependent on many factors, which include:
Event Infrastructure: Most internet connections are hardwired into existing infrastructure. The reliability of your internet connection is dependent on how good that infrastructure is set up. Placement of ethernet ports and electrical outlets must be strategic for your service to reach every point of your location.
Equipment Bandwidth: In addition to having the means to provide a connection, how much traffic those lines can withstand also becomes an important factor. If your bandwidth is limited, then you will have a poor connection. The more visitors you have on the system at the same time, the more the connection clogs and slows to a dial-up crawl.
Event Location: If you have only one hotspot, then interference becomes your enemy, especially at a larger venue. The more objects you have between the user and the hotspot, the slower your client’s connectivity will be. Having multiple hotspots ensures that when a user moves to another area of your event, they can hop to the next hotspot location.
Customer Service: You can have all three of the above lined out, but if there is no monitoring of the performance of each factor, then all it takes is for one power outage or service hiccup to disrupt your event. If your venue depends on video streaming or communication with other parts of the location, then you can lose visitors, and potential clients quickly.
To ensure you have state of the art connectivity you need a company that:
• Provides the fastest and most dependable solution for your convention, festival, or event.
• Provides a unique design that is customized to your business needs from Point of Sale to Live Streaming.
• Has an established service record of customer satisfaction.
• Will offer on-site support for your system functionality.
The company you need is GiGstreem.
