Perle Ethernet Extenders close the 250m gap between Manor House and Festival grounds
NASHVILLE, TN—July 19th, 2016 — The Village Green Festival in Essex, UK, transforms Chalkwell Park from a semi-rural garden, with a couple of hundred daily users, to a festival ground where 25,000 people congregate to share their enthusiasm for literature, art and music.
Every year, IT-Helpdesk.Co sets up the data communication network for the festival. During this process they need to extend an Ethernet link 250 meters across the festival grounds. Given that copper-based Ethernet connections are limited to a data transmission distance of only 100 meters, this originally posed a challenge to Michael Dempsey, Managing Director at IT-Helpdesk.Co.
Ethernet copper cable is run from the Manor House on the edge of Chalkwell Park over 250m to the main ticketing office. At either end of the cable IT-Helpdesk connect it to a Perle Ethernet Extender which provides seamless data transmission and connectivity to a number of wireless access points, media tents, exhibitor tents and local service feeds.For more details, read the entire IT-Helpdesk.Co Case Study.
