What are the first
Before you start to look for a temporary event WiFi solution, you need
to figure out exactly what you are looking for. This means deciding what your
WiFi requirements are.
You should consider:
The size of your audience – the number of people attending your event will impact what WiFi solution is appropriate for you. Even an educated guess is useful, so check your invite list or ticket sales and consider the number of devices attendees are likely to bring. Will they just have a mobile phone or will it be required to bring a laptop too?
What will people be doing on the internet – The actual activities people will need WiFi access for at your event is important as well. Are you offering WiFi so that people can simply browse their social media whilst they attend or do you need connectivity to allow people to complete a task whilst they are there?
Tip: If your event involves live streaming you will
need a reliable solution that can cope with more intense usage.
Do you need to prioritise any users over others – You may have some attendees who need the connection more than others. For example, if your event involves exhibitors and visitors, those with the exhibitions might take priority over everyone else.
