ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Orlando-based Smart City Networks, the nation's leading event telecommunications and technology services provider for the convention industry, has announced completion of an entire overhaul of the Hawai'i Convention Center's data and wireless capabilities in a record-setting 27 days.
"This type of project normally requires three to four months to coordinate components, contract construction, install equipment, configure, test, and deploy," noted Martin A. Rubin, CEO of Smart City Holdings. "Our team worked tirelessly to meet this record deadline, which exemplifies how well prepared our organization is to meet our partners' needs."
Smart City completed the project, assumed control of the network services and became fully operational just four weeks after being hired. The project included design and installation of 100 new access points with antennas, 29,000 feet of Category 6 networking cable, and 11 sets of patch panels, connectors and other hardware and supporting components.
"We took great measures to not only commission this equipment and get it operational in a fraction of the time most other companies would require, but to also establish network addresses and services to the convention center's permanent tenants early in the process," David Langford, Smart City's vice president of technology said. "We always strive to keep the in-house venue partners operational and minimize downtime as we upgrade their systems. Additionally, Smart City expanded the IPv4 capabilities by adding IPv6 capabilities as well."
Exceeding customer expectations is standard practice for Smart City, says Rubin, which is the exclusive telecommunications company for the Walt Disney World Resort, as well as Orlando's Orange County Convention Center (OCCC). At the convention center, Smart City serves the largest tradeshows in the world, including the upcoming National Association of Home Builder's (NAHB) International Builders Show, one of the world's largest construction trade shows, from January 10-12.
