Description of Viparis’s Wi-Fi packages
2015 june
Important information
The Wi-Fi network that is available at the exhibition centre for accessing the Internet is not intended as a replacement for
standard cable connections - which are the best in terms of data transfer speeds and security. It is intended as an option
to be used in addition to cabled network access. Radio channels that are very sensitive to interference are used for sending
data over the Wi-Fi network. This means that transmission can be severely affected or even rendered completely
impossible by sources of interference or other external causes over which the exhibition centre manager and its
telecommunications operators have no control. The construction of your stand or materials used in it, for example, can
severely reduce the speed of your Wi-Fi access, or prevent you from connecting altogether. Furthermore, some exhibitors
will be setting up private network hotspots… others will be using microwave ovens, mobile video cameras or Bluetooth
enabled equipment (non-exhaustive list), or other wireless data transmission equipment near your stand or at a
neighboring stand. All of these may interfere with your Wi-Fi access, or prevent you from connecting altogether. Since we
do not want to adopt a restrictive policy and prevent exhibitors from using such equipment at their stands, we are not
in a position to guarantee a reliable and uninterrupted Wi-Fi service. This means that we are unable to guarantee that
VPN connections, VoIP applications or live broadcasts over the Wi-Fi network will function correctly. Viparis accepts no
liability for any damage caused by the absence of a network connection or interference with the Wi-Fi network. The same
applies to any private Wi-Fi networks set up by exhibitors, the operation of which will be susceptible to interference from
other similar facilities available in the same building. Please ensure beforehand that all of the limitations described above
are acceptable to you in view of what you intend to use this service for. Otherwise, you should use one of the cabled
Internet connections available which will have all the guarantees you need in terms of reliability, speed and security.
