Cadogan Hall is a 950-seat venue near Sloane Square in the heart of Chelsea, hosting over 300 events per year.

Design with zero downtime

Working with the event organisers and the venue, we planned mapped out expected bandwidth and usage requirements, based on the number of attendees and devices then installed a public WiFi system capable of providing coverage throughout public areas, the hall, and media rooms.

On the night, our solution’s robust, reliable wireless solutions allowed for faster connections and greater user capacity, which is vital for a conference of this magnitude. We proactively monitored the network and usage throughout the event, ensuring consistent connectivity.
