Complaining about terrible Wi-Fi service in conferences and finding solutions to improve it are favorite topics here on MuniWireless. That’s why we are happy to report that Ruckus Wireless has released new products to target Wi-Fi hotspots in convention centers, hotel conference areas, sports arenas, train stations and city centers. As for relying on your mobile phone’s cellular connection, everyone knows that cellular connections perform miserably when you’re trying to find your friend at the entrance of a sold-out football game. How can event organisers and mobile operators improve cellular and Wi-Fi connectivity to impatient, demanding customers?
Ruckus Wireless has released the ZoneFlex 7782-N access point for high density deployments, which features an integrated 30° narrow beam antenna that operates in the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands. You deploy several of these APs and target them to specific areas in the stadium (as shown below) to deliver much better performance than the old omnidirectional Wi-Fi access points. Operators of wholesale Wi-Fi offloading businesses (like Towerstream) can also use these APs in crowded city areas like Times Square to allow mobile operators to reduce the congestion on their cellular networks, again by targeting the Wi-Fi signal to the spots where many people congregate and tap into their iPhones or iPads.

Risk Talk on mega events - planning for the unforeseeable
23 Jan 2013 Organised by: Swiss Re Centre for Global Dialogue
The Risk Talk series organised by the Swiss Re Centre for Global Dialogue brings together international experts and practitioners to discuss current and future economic, political and societal risks and opportunities.
What is a mega event? They can be defined as “short-term events with long-term consequences for the cities that stage them … associated with the creation of infrastructure and event facilities often carrying long-term debt and always requiring long-term use programming.” The general public knows mega events by names such as the Olympics, FIFA World Cup, Street Parade and Züri Fäscht. How do you plan for and mitigate against risks for such an event?
The Centre is pleased to present experts on the organisational, risk management and crowd control aspects of planning and running mega events. Of equal concern is the fact that mega events are becoming ever more commercial. This development prompts organisers and sponsors to protect valuable brands and related content through the use of intellectual property law (eg trademarks, copyright). Using logos, photographs and even mere words without obtaining the rights can infringe upon them and cause problems for corporations and individuals alike.
The presenters at the Risk Talk are:
Alexander Koch, Deputy Head Corporate Communications, FIFA Will Jennings, Senior Lecturer in Politics, University of Southampton Dirk Helbing, Professor of Sociology, Modeling and Simulation, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich)
Donatella Fiala & Ivan Mijatovic, Senior IP Counsel at Swiss Re will be the co-moderators for the event.
