Boston Convention & Exhibition Center Gets Major Wireless Upgrade

The Massachusetts Convention Center Authority has begun installation of a $2.6 million wireless infrastructure overhaul at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.

The state-of-the-art upgrade will increase the number of existing wireless access points from 113 to at least 580, meaning a 413 percent increase in number of access points throughout the BCEC.

The MCCA, the first organization in the meetings industry to offer completely complimentary and reliable wireless Internet service at its facilities, has upgraded the wireless infrastructure at the BCEC four times since 2004.

Convention center plans Wi-Fi improvements for 2015

The Massachusetts Convention Center Authority said Tuesday that it would spend $2.6 million to upgrade its wireless network to support more users.

 

Over the next several months, the convention center will increase the number of Wi-Fi access points from 113 to at least 580. The public body that manages the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center said it had hired three companies to plan, install, and test the new Wi-Fi network, which it plans to phase in from May to September 2015.

 

“It used to be people were bringing in one device. Now we’re seeing some folks carry two, three, four devices into this environment, and all of those devices create more traffic on our network,” said Steve Snyder, the convention center’s chief technical officer.

The App That Helps You Find Live shows in Boston is Officially Here

In September, Trill launched its online website, giving Bostonians an all-encompassing database for finding local entertainment, be it music, comedy, dance or theater. Founded out of MIT by Kathleen Stetson, a former opera singer and acoustical engineer, and Katy Harris, Trill is on a mission to help Bostonians explore the cultural events happening around them, and to help local organizations and venues reach a broader audience.

 

Now, that mission is going mobile. Today, December 10, the Trill team launched their mobile app, Trill Tonight. Similar to its online counterpart, Trill.me, Trill Tonight gathers "everything that's happening on a stage" in Boston that day and night, but the app fits it all in your pocket. Trill.me can show you shows coming up over the next few weeks, but Trill Tonight is dedicated to that day, making it perfect for last minute decisions and finding that underground performance you've been craving but didn't know how to pinpoint, Trill is working to make experiencing the city's live performances as easy as opening an app on your phone.
