WiFi Event Service
The challenge of medical conventions
At medical conventions in Berlin and Frankfurt, we have created temporary WLAN infrastructures for connecting as many as 300 iPads to a local server. At these events, this system was used for feeding the content of presentations and for live voting. Different systems are used depending on the spatial conditions and requirements, so that up to 5,000 concurrent users and more can be provided with a temporary, high-performance WLAN infrastructure.
The challenge of the Gerry Weber Open
It began with 1,500 guests in the VIP area. Today, the Gerry Weber Open in Halle Westfalen has several thousand visitors who are able to surf in the tournament’s WLAN network simultaneously, mobile and free of charge. Wireless Consulting GmbH created this system on behalf of the organizers of Germany’s largest tennis tournament, who wanted to offer their guests something extra. During planning and implementation, however, many requirements had to be taken into account with regard to appearance, handling for the VIP guests, and the associated legal security. The GERRY WEBER OPEN VIP area covered by Wireless.Consulting GmbH’s “wirelessXstream” with 18 WLAN access points measures 3,500 m². One year later, the system was extended to allow several thousand additional tennis fans to surf the Internet simultaneously in the beer garden area. This installation, including measurement, project planning, coordination and implementation, took about four weeks.
