It can be difficult to provide temporary internet for an event. Even the most technically-savvy companies sometimes find that their temporary internet WiFi services are a letdown at events, which reflects badly on the company hosting the event, and can sometimes even ruin an event. Providing WiFi for guests at an event is not always a mere novelty. At conferences, for example, the provision of WiFi services is often essential for delegates to work and research, or promote the company holding the event through live press publication and social media.
Of course no WiFi providers intentionally build a poor connection, it can just be difficult to plan a strong network. It is not a matter of turning up with the correct equipment, switching it on for the duration of the event, and taking it back again. The provision of temporary internet is a complex process where many factors need to be considered. The estimated usage at any given point, the amount this is likely to fluctuate (and managing this change), the size and architecture of the building or location and conflicting signals all need to be taken into account.
To find an appropriate solution your needs, successful internet providers will consider a number of options. Event WiFi services are generally thought of initially, but a temporary Cloud or 3G connection might be more suitable. You may find one of the following options appropriate for your event:
- Wireless networks can be provided indoors and outdoors (or both simultaneously), across any number of rooms necessary. They can also be site wide.
- Press room WiFi services.
- A temporary cloud can provide internet access, which can be used for data capture.
- Production offices can build a networked extension of an office, complete with server access and VOIP.
Good IT providers can deliver a first class reliable connection which is tailored to your needs, even if your site does not have phone lines. They should be able to offer temporary ADSL/ADSL2+ broadband which can provide WiFi and Clouds, plug-and-play 3G bonded routers, and Point to Point connections for a completely robust connection.
If you require equipment hire your internet providers may be able to provide this as well as your WiFi services. If you require laptops, PCs, Macs, routers, printers of VOIP telephones just ask.
