Ensure Wi-fi Connectivity at Events with Portable Cellular Routers
Posted in Spotlights on March 15, 2019
Don’t lose wi-fi connection when you need it most.
Ticketbud has expanded its rentable device range for events to include new portable cellular routers. The Pepwave MAX BR1 Mini is easy to transport and use, creating a reliable wi-fi hotspot for your event. Ideal for large-scale events, or events in remote areas. It increases wi-fi range and capability for ticket scanning and onsite ticket sales. These devices reduce the risk of lost wi-fi connection, avoiding point-of-sale and check-in delays.
“The BR1 mini is an industrial-grade lightweight router for easy transportation. Put simply, this device helps the internet live where it otherwise would not live. Because of its inbuilt wireless radio and antennas, the router has a much higher signal strength, increasing wi-fi range and capability. It’s easy to use, you just plug-in, connect to wi-fi and go.” Rob Nussbaum, Technology & Telecom Consultant, JackBaum Group
The device runs sim cards for two cellular networks, automatically switching when needed. This provides a fail-safe should one network go down, minimizing the risk of losing connectivity for onsite sales and ticket scanning.
These devices can be used as the primary router for offsite locations or as a failover backup connection. If your primary connection fails, you can swap over to the MAX BR1 Mini’s 4G connection. The only time the wi-fi router wouldn't be sufficient is if your event was in a very remote area where there was limited access to cellular towers, in which case you may need satellite access.
The Pepwave MAX BR1 Mini is a 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) mobile wi-fi router.
The BR1 Mini offers redundant SIM slots with automatic switching, DC or terminal block power capability, advanced GPS fleet tracking, and remote management, all packed into a durable metal enclosure. (Verizon certified).
Available For Rent
We recommend ordering hardware devices a minimum of 2 weeks before your event, allowing some buffer time should there be shipping delays. This will also give us time to talk with you about best practices for using the wi-fi router at your event.
Ticketbud has a range of hardware devices available for rent from the Ticketbud Store.
