      • 0

      The Barbican has appointed the global event wi-fi provider Max WiFi to enhance its wi-fi services and network management for event attendees, staff and the public.

      Max WiFi has upgraded the wi-fi across the Barbican Centre, which now delivers greater performance in terms of capacity, speed and signal strength. In particular, the upgrades will support the Barbican’s hybrid and digital business events offering.

      The network upgrade includes:

      • Installation of approximately 40 additional Wireless Access Points across the Centre’s event spaces
      • Stronger signal quality through upgrading existing WiFi Access Points
      • An improved end-user wi-fi experience with faster speeds and increased signal strength
      • Increased capacity, allowing delegates to connect multiple devices in more event spaces
      • The option to have Max WiFi Event Engineers on-site during events to offer support

      Lee Dobson, Head of Barbican Business Event Management said: “We are looking forward to the impact Max WiFi will have on our network, particularly as a result of the significant switch to hybrid and digital events we are seeing as a result of COVID-19. Thanks to Max WiFi’s extensive experience within the events industry, when we welcome delegates back to the Barbican, we are confident they will receive a WiFi experience synonymous with an internationally renowned venue.”

      Max WiFi will be working closely with the Barbican Business Events team over the three-year contract, to maintain the network so it delivers maximum benefit to the Barbican’s many visitors.

      Max WiFi is a specialist event wi-fi provider, which supports other venues such as Tobacco Dock, Central Hall Westminster & Sea Containers House.
