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.

"The champion of this department was Levy Restaurants, an event and catering company associated with Hynes Convention Center. Levy’s cupcakes were basically beyond words. I’ve never tasted a better crafted cupcake in my entire 26 year-cupcake-eating-life."

D Street Tunes: Here is the full DJ schedule for Lawn on D’S summer series ‘Lester Bangs Presents’

With only about a year of programming under its belt, outdoor space The Lawn On D might be this summer’s hottest music destination in Boston. This past weekend, the Southie-slash-Seaport multi-purpose venue hosted a jam-packed Narragansett party with Bearstronaut, and two upcoming Bowery Boston shows — Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros on June 17 and Passion Pit on July 23 — are already sold out.

 

Saturday nights at Lawn On D are taking a more chill approach, with a series of various personalities in the Boston music scene DJing parties that pay tribute to their favorite artists and musical moments in time.

 

It’s called Lester Bangs Presents, and it kicked off this past weekend with Eli “Paperboy” Reed spinning southern soul, and future events include the Boston Herald’s Jed Gottlieb spinning local favorites, DJ ABD throwing down all things related to Prince, and this writer tapping into his former life as DJ of the Pill for a night of Cool Britannia.

fficials envisioned a sports stadium and vocational school near South Station, boating and beaches on Columbia Point, and a push to transform the seedy streets around Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market into the shopping and tourist destination that exists today.
