Once again, our Event Networks team are busy preparing for the installation of the UK’s largest temporary event network, for the iconic Farnborough International Airshow.  The Airshow is one of the world’s largest exhibitions and air displays and brings together the world’s leading aerospace organisations to facilitate global trade.  Clocking up an order book of over US$72 billion in 2012, connectivity plays a vital role in ensuring the smooth running of the event, enabling exhibitors to operate as if they were in their own offices and keeping the world’s aerospace media connected.
With more than 130 miles of cable across the 1000 acre site, 300MB of internet connectivity, yards and yards of trenches, 600 VOIP telephones and 7000 end-points, installing and managing the network for this event is no mean feat!  Our team are on-site throughout the year, upgrading the fibre optic network and installing additional cable to ensure robust and reliable connectivity, which is absolutely business-critical to over 300 exhibitors and more than 3000 WiFi users during the 7 day event.
The Airshow site is very much a greenfield location, which means that we have installed the entire connectivity infrastructure from scratch and are responsible for maintaining, extending and upgrading it each year.  If you have a project or event that requires connectivity, whether in a field, on a road, or in a venue that just requires an extra boost, you can trust us to deliver – give us a call on +44 (0) 345 226 3083 or email us hiredesk@dbsystems.co.uk
