With Vivid Sydney just around the corner, the city’s annual celebration of creativity, innovation, and technology is set to transform Sydney after dark for 23 days and nights. From Friday 24 May to Saturday 15 June, the city will sparkle at night with immersive art installations and 3D light projections infused with live music and fabulous dining experiences.  

As the largest arts festival in the Southern Hemisphere, Vivid is famous for its stunning displays that illuminate iconic landmarks around the city and Sydney Harbour. It’s also well known for its world-class culinary events. As such, a riot of pop-up locations, temporary stores, venues, self-ordering kiosks, food trucks, and more will swell the city’s capacity to cater for the more than three million enthusiastic visitors expected over the two weeks. 

Behind the scenes, businesses serving food and drinks and providing a range of dining and other services, are increasingly choosing cellular networks to power their point-of-sale terminals, digital signage, and other critical applications. That’s because a key part of a pop-up’s success comes from having a temporary network that is secure, easy to deploy, and can be managed from anywhere. 

On-demand wireless connectivity uses mobile networks rather than fixed broadband lines to empower these businesses with the agility to pop up where when and where they are needed.

imei partner Cradlepoint, is a global leader in cloud-delivered LTE and 5G wireless network edge solutions, offering its NetCloud Service through wireless edge routers to deliver instant network connectivity anywhere, any time.




Unlocking the power of LTE and 5G connectivity

5G cellular routers allow businesses to prioritise high performance, low latency, and minimal downtime in these situations. As this year’s Vivid program will be staged across the city from Circular Quay and the Sydney Opera House to Barangaroo, Darling Harbour, University of Technology Sydney, Carriageworks, and more, you can be sure more businesses will be relying on wireless edge solutions to provide connectivity and data where its required.

As the routers are not fixed to any physical location, they can be easily moved to the next location when required. And what’s more, it can take next to no time to set up a temporary wireless network connection using Cradlepoint routers. Even before your new router reaches the temporary site, imei can configure your Cradlepoint router centrally, setting up security, Wi-Fi connections, and any other customized network configurations at the same time.
