Internet Connectivity Guidelines

 

Occasionally check emails, use social media, apps or browse the internet.

Olympia London provides complimentary WiFi  throughout the venue. The free connection delivers only up to 512Kbps. This is an unsupported service.

eForce provide daily connections, these are our wireless connections from up to 2Mbps per device, priced per user and supported by our engineers. It is useful to consider what type of device you will be using on the day. We will be happy to explain this in more detail.

A more reliable internet connection that is unlikely to drop out.

Devices such as laptops or PCs can be plugged into our network via a wired connection. A wired connection provides the most consistent and reliable link. Wi-Fi zones are available for mobile devices, however due to the nature of exhibitions – a large number of people in a confined space, with lots of potential interference from other equipment, metals and so on – this service is not as resilient as a wired connection.

To connect back to my office network and download files.

You will need to order at least 1 Mbps wired internet access. Make sure you have also checked with your IT department that your device can connect, and that you know how to set this up. To download large PDF files, video content, stream or show presentations online, you will need a higher bandwidth speed – ideally between 2 – 4 Mbps.

To offer free branded Wi-Fi to my customers.

Our Wi-Fi zones can cater for up to 30 people at any one time. This service provides you with your own SSID (network name),and password as well as the option for a branded log-in page and redirection.

Connect multiple devices to the internet.

The number of devices you wish to connect will determine the bandwidth required. We will be happy to advise you on how best to plan for this. Warning: we strongly recommend that you do not try to set up your own network. Known in the industry as ‘rogue devices’ your equipment is likely to interfere with the WiFi provision at the event, and you may be required to take it down. We will be able to devise a better solution by working together.
