Entertainment and retail venues are high-traffic areas that require continuous, reliable and secure connectivity to complete day-to-day operations. With the fast-paced environment of retail, especially one as large and highly trafficked as the 3 million-square-foot American Dream, a flexible, easily adaptable solution is essential. Indeed, the American Dream Retail Experience requires high-performance connectivity to power wireless and wired communications, audio and visual operations, background music, events, point-of-sale, high-end 4K video displays, simplistic IoT location-tracking sensors for strollers or elevators, and more.
American Dream is using OnGo-powered solutions to improve guest experiences, manage costs, and support large-scale, reliable connectivity without interference. Prior to OnGo, the American Dream expected to spend $3-4 million on high-bandwidth connectivity via traditional fiber optic cables to serve the entire venue – which would take over six months to deploy. With OnGo, American Dream saves 90% on fiber optic costs by boosting connectivity of their existing Wi-Fi systems to serve its entire venue with uncompromised connectivity. Moreover, the deployment timeline was reduced from several months to less than six weeks.
OnGo puts the power of the network into the hands of the venue itself, where the owner can deploy and manage their own communications, without sacrificing guest experiences.
