Wi-Fi and communications agency, Max WiFi, has been awarded the contract for one of the largest Internet and social media conferences in the world, LeWeb Paris 2013, for the third year running.
Taking place at Les Docks, a large campus covering several thousand square metres, LeWeb Paris will run over three days from 10-12 December and will feature speakers including Stéphane Richard, Chairman and CEO of Orange; Michael Sippy, VP of Product at Twitter; and David Marcus, President of PayPal.
Over 3,000 delegates from 80 counties are expected to attend.
LeWeb Paris will celebrate its 10th anniversary and will bring together the brightest technological innovators and visionaries to explore topics on mobile, hardware and social media and what the next 10 years might hold. Questions including: will computers really have the intellectual capability of human beings?; What’s next for the cloud?; How much faster and more powerful can devices get and where will 3D printing take us next? will be discussed.
Over a two day build, prior to the event, Max WiFi will use a one Gigabit Internet connection, over 9km of Cat5e data cable, in excess of 85 Cisco Access Points, more than 45 Cisco Gigabit switches and a fully resilient, high performance core routing platform to meet the demands of the event.
VIPs, exhibitors, press and tweeters and bloggers will reap the benefits of the Wi-Fi infrastructure carrying a possible 9-12,000 devices in total.
In 2012, the dashboard at LeWeb Paris recorded some 6,000 devices, transferring three Terabytes over three days. Most delegates carried more than one device with some carrying up to five. Half of these were mobile devices, with 1,940 iPhones and 846 iPads.This is expected to increase at the 2013 conference with Google Glass and possible new releases from Apple and other vendors adding to the considerable device count.
