San Jose Convention Center Roll Out Free Wi-Fi

June 9, 2014

Team San Jose and City of San Jose officials reported the launch of free Wi-Fi throughout the San Jose McEnery Convention Center, extending the City's Wickedly Fast Free Wi-Fi already offered at the Mineta San Jose International Airport and within downtown San Jose - - delivering free Wi-Fi connectivity to millions of data-starved business travelers and conference attendees coming to the Capital of Silicon Valley.

According to a media release, the San Jose Convention Center is raising the bar on the model for providing high-speed wireless access and making it available throughout the convention center for free. The new in-house service approach offers significantly more bandwidth and more solutions than competitors. Team San Jose estimates saving clients up to 10 percent in technology services. The wireless technology is designed to support multiple devices per attendee, allowing thousands of attendees the ability to stream uninterrupted.

With a $1.5 million technology investment, as of July 1, San Jose noted its convention center will be offering a tailored, seamless, in-house approach to IT services. The technology package will include a 'white glove service' geared toward small, medium or large sized groups who need wired and custom wireless solutions, and a 'bring your own geek service' for groups with their own technical staff who need to build a private network and extend their network to the convention center.

Team San Jose is an economic development organization.

Ruckus Wireless is a global supplier of wireless systems.
