WLAN for 9elements

At the beginning of November 2015 our friends and partners at 9elements in Bochum decided to opt for a new WLAN solution.

In Bochum’s inner city the old Ubiquiti based solution didn’t work well anymore. Lots of other WLANs in the neighbourhood, no band steering (moving clients to the 5GHz-Band), Beam Forming (adapting antennas to connected clients) and RF monitoring (detecting and bypassing malfunctions) made it hard to work with the existing WLAN.

Bearing those circumstances in mind, we came up with a new WLAN solution based on Ruckus R710 access points. The R710s enable 802.11ac based on the new “Wave 2” version of the standard and are thus well equipped for coming device generations.
Through BeamFlex technology we also ensured that mobile devices like laptops and smartphones always get the best available connection quality. Due to different antenna location in smartphones and laptops (antenna in the laptop lid) dual polarised antennas in access points are absolutely necessary to achieve high speeds and reduce malfunctions.
The Ruckus R710s are also set for IoT applications. They come with a USB port for plugging in  Bluetooth low energy sticks and therefore enables indoor positioning for the client.
Since 9elements is working with pioneering technologies, the iBeacon technology was another reason to go for these access points.

The migration, which was performed during working hours, didn’t cause any difficulties. After the physical installation, the pre-configured access points were activated one after another. In this way the clients could switch to the new WLAN network during operations and with only a few seconds of interruption.

After getting the first really positive feedback we hope that 9elements will have just as much fun with their new wireless freedom in the future! 🙂

Crashtest Dortmund with rrbone

In June 2012, Crashtest Nordstadt will be performed in Dortmund. An outdoor project of Theater Dortmund supported by rrbone.

rrbone provides infrastructure to the Crashtest Nordstadt project of the Schauspiel Dortmund.

Within the scope of the project, actors and organizers will use the voice VPN from rrbone for efficient communication. On top of the communication network (GSM/UMTS) of our partner T-Mobile, who routes voice and data traffic to our own voice and data network we are able to provide communication services between groups and persons in different 1:1, n:1, 1:n and n:n scenarios.

Furthermore, we provide Internet access at the three central locations Nordmarkt, Schleswiger Straße und Braunschweiger Straße.

This performance is carried out in close cooperation with the Chaostreff Dortmund and FREE! at the Langer August.
