WIRED Magazine Business Conference Utilizes Spot On Networks Wi-Fi to Enhance Mobile Device Coverage(May 08, 2012)
New Haven, CT (PRWEB) May 08, 2012
Spot On Networks (http://www.spotonnetworks.com), the largest provider of Managed Wi-Fi Networks to the multifamily housing industry and a leading provider of Wi-Fi networks to the hospitality and commercial industries, announced today that it would be installing a Spot On UserSafe Temporary Cell Booster Network to support mobile device usage at the WIRED Magazine Business Conference: Disruptive By Design In Partnership with MDC Partners.
The WIRED Magazine Conference is a one-day symposium featuring C-level executives and thought-leaders featuring groundbreaking discussions on disruptive business practices, ideas and innovations. The WIRED Conference will be attended by more than 400 executives and will be held at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York City.
Smartphones and tablets are an essential part of staying connected to the office, however a poor indoor cell phone signal can make this a challenge, said Michael Cummiskey of Wi-Ex. With Spot On Networks help, we provided the attendees of the WIRED Business Conference with the ability to stay on top of emails, phone calls and texts, as well as Tweet the latest conference news all while still enjoying the conference.
According to William Howard, Vice President of Project Management for Spot On Networks, the Museum of Jewish Heritage, is a cellular dead zone due to the buildings exterior construction primarily the lead tinted windows. In order to ensure that the executives attending the WIRED conference had secure and complete data, voice and Internet support on their mobile devices such as iPads and iPhones, it was necessary for us to deploy an enhanced network within the three-story building using Wi-Ex zBoost cellular signal boosters.
Wi-Ex (http://www.wi-ex.com), a leading provider of cell phone signal boosters, developed zBoost, the first consumer-priced signal booster that extended cell zones for the small office/home office cell phone market. Wi-Ex has expanded their extending cell zone coverage beyond consumers to corporate enterprises and large commercial applications. From M2M applications to large commercial complexes to the rising number of teleworkers, the zBoost line provides a business-centric solution for improving poor in-door cell phone coverage domestically and internationally. The zBoost product line works with most carriers in the US and abroad including AT&T, Sprint, Vodaphone, Verizon and T-Mobile. The award-winning zBoost home and office solutions help today's connected consumers including iPhone, iPad, Android (DROID), BlackBerry, and smartphone users with dropped calls and slow data. They were awarded a 2007 and 2010 Consumer Electronics Association Innovations Honoree by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) and a 2011 EXC!TE honoree. They also were selected as a finalist for the 2007 and 2009 CTIA Emerging Technologies (E-Tech) Award. As the leader, zBoost has more awards, more sales and more locations than all their competitors combined. Wi-Ex continues to develop innovative products to meet the demands of an increasingly wireless society by enhancing wireless signals.
