Manchester-based IT support and consultants, Linten Technologies, were chosen to deliver widespread wireless internet access for the large-scale international POLIS conference. Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) engaged with the award-winning IT company to provide a robust WiFi solution for the annual POLIS event. Hosted at Old Trafford stadium, Linten ensured uninterrupted WiFi connection for all 550 delegates.
The event brings together European politicians to share insights on ‘Innovation in Transport for Sustainable Cities and Regions’. With a record number of attendees expected, the event organisers needed reliable internet connectivity for the duration.
Linten worked closely with the event venue team – Manchester United Football Ground – to deliver fast and secure connection throughout a huge area. Gaining access to the venue just days prior to the POLIS conference, Linten installed all necessary hardware and thoroughly stress-tested the WiFi services.
Steven Allan, Managing Director at Linten, comments: “We understand the vital importance of a reliable, fast and secure internet connection, for any business or event to run efficiently. Working with Transport for Greater Manchester and the tech team at Old Trafford allowed us to demonstrate the scalability of our services as we installed and supported a seamless WiFi connection.”
Anna Craciun, Innovation Strategy Officer at TGFM, comments: “We were impressed with the speed and efficiency with which Linten installed the stable WiFi for our event. The sheer size of the venue required expert service to deliver a professional, enterprise-level internet connection. I was delighted that the WiFi solution from Linten perfectly accommodated our needs.”
