A positive event experience benefits everyone involved and, through social media, guests can share that experience instantly with a global audience. That positive association is of such high value to brands and sponsors that they are investing more than ever in live events.
Major problems with wireless and server capacities made headlines in at the Pokemon Go Festival in Chicago. The total of guests you are expecting on the day and their peak arrival times are very important. Informing your provider about the venue and staffing requirements also helps plan the network capacity required.
The guest s at this particular event peaked at around 4PM, and a bulk of guests arrived in the preceding hour. This is important data in any circumstance, but for an event where guests are expecting to download or update an app on arrival, understanding this flow is critical. On overload net Mb network at full utilization that is going to take over 7 hours, but you only have 3 hours to get it done, while handling all of the other network traffic as well. The Pokemon Go app consumes approximate 10mb of data per hour during normal usage, which is actually quite low.
That is until you get 20, people all trying to play the game at the same time in the same place. Our total bandwidth estimate for the first three hours of an event with an expected 20, people in attendance is now Gb per hour. This will not be the only traffic generated by your guests. Average data usage by US mobile subscribers is currently Mb per day. That brings us to a total of Gb of network traffic per hour in the first three hours of the event. An experienced event network provider like TOURtech will be able to work through this with you. Another note worth mentioning is that this overload net just the requirement for your guests.
That does not include any requirements for production offices, digital teams, live streaming, etc. You can overload net how quickly the data requirements add up. That being said, they will, at ificant cost to themselves, deploy COWs cell on wheels to augment existing network capacity for some events. This requires ificant advanced planning and a high of man hours to install and operate. However, you have zero control or visibility of the carrier network, which means you cannot control your guest experience. Building high capacity Wi-Fi networks in an outdoor situation requires specialized hardware and in depth planning; talking to an experienced event Wi-Fi service provider is a must.
They will help you examine your site plan and assess likely user distribution across the space. User density increases around stages, indoor areas, food and beverage and sponsor locations. Remember, you have zero control over the mobile carrier network, but you can control the Wi-Fi infrastructure. As well as the provision of adequate Wi-Fi capacity, we can prioritize certain types of traffic on the Wi-Fi networks we deploy. Most events now use RFID access control and cashless point of sale, services which heavily rely on the network to operate efficiently.
That type of network traffic is low in terms of bandwidth, but it does require fast response times from the servers. Sponsored Live Streaming is also a regular component of events these days. That requires consistent, high bandwidth capacity throughout the event. Whatever the requirement, the network can be configured to deliver priority to the specific requirements of the situation.
Doing this would perform two functions: it offlo the bulk overload net bandwidth requirement to the Wi-Fi network and provides a better experience for guests. Delivering a great experience to your guests on show day requires an advance investment, both in time and budget.
It might be a sizable amount of both, but your attendees and everyone involved are worth it! 1: How many guests are you expecting? 2: How much network capacity do I need? That equates to Gb per hour of network traffic. 3: How do we get our guests connected? That is where you deploy your Wi-Fi coverage.
