In order to meet the greater internet connectivity requirements for the 2011 International CES, Smart City Networks quadrupled the bandwidth available at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) for the event.
Quadrupling the bandwidth for CES will increase the system’s capacity from one gigabit (Gb) to four Gb, enabling a faster transfer of significantly more data via the internet.
The world’s largest consumer technology tradeshow, the 2011 International CES, showcases the most cutting-edge electronic products, many of which now utilize the internet.
In fact, CES expects one of the show’s top trends will be internet-enabled everything, meaning the internet will be an integral component of not only phones and computers, but more consumer products than ever before, such as cars, cameras, printers, and televisions.
Smart City’s bandwidth upgrade will better accommodate the many internet-enabled products on display, offering exhibitors fast and reliable connections to demonstrate the products’ capabilities.
In addition, Smart City has made arrangements with their providers to implement further upgrades with little to no notice further exemplifying the need to find flexible partners with unique solutions for a technology intensive environment like the International CES.
The International CES expects over 120,000 tech-savvy attendees who will use their own smart phones, laptops, tablets and other devices all requiring connectivity.
Smart City Networks anticipates that 2011 CES will record the greatest use of connectivity and wi-fi service in the history of the event. The four Gb bandwidth upgrade will ensure a faster and more reliable wi-fi service to meet this increased demand.
“Internet connectivity is important for every event, but none as much as the International CES,” said Mark Haley, president of Smart City Networks. “CES showcases the latest and greatest electronic products, many of which now utilize the internet for functionality. We quadrupled the bandwidth for the 2011 CES to ensure that all of these products, as well as the thousands of CES attendees, have a fast and reliable internet connection.”
