An item that continues to come up when we are working on groups is wifi needs. How much bandwidth is enough and how much-dedicated megs do you guarantee under concessions. I am passing on some great resources to figure out the answer to these questions.
In order for us to help our clients, it is very important for us to identify the following information:
- How many attendees will be in the meeting space?
- Will they have multiple devices?
- Is there a live streaming requirement?
- Will you be downloading/uploading data for presentations?
- Are they using a mobile meeting app?
Once we have this information you can use the PSAV bandwidth calculator to figure out how many megabits of bandwidth is needed for the group. If it is a large group with a lot of attendees you will want to get dedicated wifi that is exclusive for your group. We typically negotiate the bandwidth complimentary as a concession our larger groups and always include the megabyte number.

If you have any questions about wifi or anything else, just give me a call.
