Sibos 2015, Singapore

Sibos 2015, Singapore

A large banking/financial conference held at the Marina Bay Sands convention centre in Singapore. Our brief involved working closely with the venue team to ensure the delivery of a successful event.

The client, through their agency George P Johnson,  engaged Pylon One a year in advance of the event to provide full network consulting services, commencing with a full survey of the existing in-house systems and their ability to deliver the event in October 2015. The need for Pylon One to provide initial consultancy services was driven by poor experiences of previous venues, where although significant bandwidth was available, there was not the flexibility of design and infrastructure management to ensure the successful delivery of the event.

A full survey of the coverage, RF configuration and setup of the existing network using Ekahau Site Survey highlighted some concerns with the existing system design and architecture and their ability to deliver the requirements for the event.

Between November 2014 and September 2015 Pylon One worked closely with the MBS and their chosen vendor, Aruba, to upgrade their entire system and configure it appropriately for the Sibos requirement. The Pylon One team were then commissioned to attend site for the event to work closely with the venue and manage the delivery of the network and the appropriate bandwidth, resulting in the most successful event Sibos had ever had.

The network supported over 11000 unique devices with a concurrent device count that exceeded 8000 and, most importantly, delivered a credible wireless network to over 180 exhibitors that allowed them to operate and demonstrate their products without the need to install any of their own systems.

In addition to the wireless management of the overall event, the team also installed a wired network for the conference areas that delivered a 10Gbps backbone around the conference rooms to facilitate the live video element of the event, distributing both streamed and recorded files throughout the venue.
