Eventdrive: What are the type of events that are using Peeble?

Olivier: Our Wifi solutions are using 4G reception as such we have considerable advantages on Outdoor Events installations using pods, podium, Events tentes, village, meeting zones, animations etc…

However we regularly have work and request for remote sites or locations where Internet Access and bandwith is a problem with satured networks.

Our Peeble equipment and solutions offers extremely easy set-ups without cabling or heavy human intervention on site, so event organisers appreciate the flexibility and speed of installation.

e: With the growth of technologies of interactivity during live event, what are the most recurring needs in terms of wifi connection?

O: Indeed this is a critical check point to validate, before delivering an event, we qualify the type of animations and interactive technologies that are planned, the type of bandwith required, the density of connections, the audience, the area to be covered and most of all the location coverage in 4G, we have appropriate solutions varying upon the type of events.

Increasing event interactivity needs refer to photos and streaming.

e: What are the solutions available in the market?

O: Traditional wifi solutions remain fix infrastructures as event organisers are still not familiar with 4G wifi solutions. So classical fiber optic links with firewall, CAT6 routers etc, are what event organisers use. People think 4G wifi solution providers are extremely seldom on the market as majority of the known solutions are for 10 or 30 simultaneous connections. We can provide higher density 4G routers with large number of conections.

e: How does your solution differentiate?

O: The professional grade 4G event routers with high density of connections is one as explain, but our captive portal with organiser customisation and visuals is a good attraction for them, the level of security we support with the authentification process and finally the fact that we are managing data capacity.

e: What are your recommendations for all event managers in their connectivity requirements?

O: Discovering a video streaming on a large screen, being vague on the exact location or not detailling all the planned animation can generate risky situations.

4G wifi solutions are not only easier but also less expensive to deploy on events. Event organisers should be very open and give a lot of details in their event objectives, descriptions ans specifications without being afraid of higher costs consequences. This is our main recommendation.
