Lake Country Satellite provides WiFi coverage for local events of any size. With our mobile office platform we can provide a fast and reliable internet connection virtually anywhere. Because our technology is satellite based, we can deliver where others can’t! So if your event is in the middle of a tobacco field here in Southern Virginia, we’ve gotcha covered!
Our mobile office is the first of it’s kind to be commissioned exclusively using technology from ViaSat and Exede. We are self powered using a 250 watt solar panel on the roof to power our equipment and charge the storage batteries. This allows us to stay up and running around the clock providing high speed internet and voice communications.
We have several long range WiFi systems we can rapidly deploy. On-board we have a 5G & 2G Ubiquiti system that provides fixed long range coverage to about a 100 yard perimeter around our mobile office. For larger events, we have a Rukus WiFi system with multiple repeaters that are installed around the venue.
These WiFi systems can be configured in several ways. The most popular is a secure connection for vendors to process credit card transactions on their terminals or smartphones. This works extremely well in areas of poor cell phone reception, or when the cell towers are just overwhelmed with users because of the event. This allows the vendors to continue to accept credit card transactions even though their cell signal is weak or non-existent. A separate guest WiFi network can be set up for the attendees keeping the vendors traffic secure.
WiFi has become a valuable tool that event promoters can use to bring a higher value and level of service to their venue. In more and more cases, WiFi is expected to be available for your vendors at your event.
