If you are looking to take your meeting to the next level by allowing your attendees maximum portability and efficient, fast connections — look no further than to the versatility of Apple iPads and the reliability of Wi-Fi network rentals that can support up to 1,000 devices. When an event offers iPad rentals and attendees use their own smartphones, event venues need more access points to handle all these devices. Adding a Wi-Fi network array ensures that the event has the best connectivity and portability option. 

Here are the key benefits of renting iPads and wireless network arrays for your event:

The network can be customized to your meeting needs and allow for web-based apps. 

Many planners are nervous running web apps on an iPad system because they think the app may not be available in a timely basis…especially if they have 700 individuals trying to access the information all at the same time. The key is to work with your AV provider to test, analyze and customize the Wi-Fi system to meet your needs. A "one size fits all" mentality with Wi-Fi is no longer necessary.  

All attendees can simultaneously see the same digital information on their iPads. 

Imagine having hundreds, if not thousands of attendees strewn all over a convention center and hotel. You need to get a message to all of them…RIGHT NOW. It might be about an impending session or an alert about the weather. Whatever it is, having iPads and the right network array allows everyone to see the same information at the same time. 

Meeting your bandwidth needs — including seamless roaming and video streaming. 

Most attendees are going to expect the same level of Wi-Fi speed and security they have at home or the office. They don't want to run into "dead zones" and they don't want to suffer from what might seem like endless buffering. The Wi-Fi network array allows for more access points, both inside and out, and boosts the bandwidth allowing for a network configuration that will keep your attendees happy with the network. 

Administer on-site surveys and centralize the data for instant analysis.

The iPad has great survey apps that can be integrated right into the presentation to allow for more flexibility with the speakers, sponsors or conference services staff. This solution allows planners and speakers to change things up as needed and create a meeting environment that is more geared to real-time attendee wants and needs. 

Wi-Fi network arrays provide for a multi-level secure environment. 

Free internet does not always provide you a secure system. As an event organizer, you don't want to worry that just anyone can log onto the system and access your data. This is especially true if you are conducting a product launching event that is going to give your organization a huge competitive advantage. Having a secure system is just as important as having a fast system.
