The Success Story

Every year, Vendor organizes many network events to boost an engaged and active relationship between the vendors/manufacturers and their customers. GET THE 411 is one of these network events.

GET THE 411 is hosted at the legendary Arapahoe Basin Ski Area. It’s a one-day event with skiing and lunch. As the organizer, Vendor seems to have everything ready, except providing internet access during the event. They couldn’t figure out how to quickly establish temporary network connectivity in a remote mountain area full of snow. They reached out to their partner Billion Technologies, a leading wireless connectivity devices supplier, for help.

Billion’s engineer did a quick geography assessment, recommended using BiPAC 4700AZ 4G/LTE Router along with 4G/LTE Wireless data as the solution. BiPAC 4700AZ is the industry’s first outdoor LTE router with 802.11ac hotspot. The carrier-grade hotspot and high capacity can provide more than enough Wi-Fi coverage for the entire event. Power over Ethernet (PoE) allows for installation without having to connect to AC power. Most importantly, the compact and industrial-rugged IP68 enclosure is designed to work in harsh weather conditions.

As a result, by deploying Billion’s outdoor router, Vendor was able to provide fast, reliable and seamless Wi-Fi coverage throughout the entire event.
