The Challenge

Client Requirements

The Essex Army Cadet Force hold summer camps for their cadets once a year. As part of their camp, they planned an IT security and online safety training event as part. The camp site has no internet capability or WiFi, so they approached Fli-Fi to connect 50 PCs located in a training room for the cadets to use, to a training website.

Foreseen Challenges

The location, being fairly rural, offered no fixed line, and 4G coverage was also poor, meaning that obtaining sufficient internet speeds would be challenging. Additionally, having 50 devices operating through a single access point would require a reasonably high capacity.

The Solution

Solution Proposed

Flif-Fi’s event connect solution utilized multiple 4G internet connections to ensure adequate coverage of the training room and camp site. WiFi signal was distributed by 2 wireless access points to allow all 50 devices to connect to the internet simultaneously.

Installation Process

Our event engineers attendance site to ensure the very best quality of service at the location, with equipment installed indoors and an external antenna located outdoors. Once complete the engineer tested for speeds and allowed the client to thoroughly test their own hardware before signing off the installation.

Support Given

With no requirement for an onsite engineer, we remotely monitored the service, with alarming set to notify our team should anything out of the ordinary happen and give immediate assistance.


All of the cadets could carry out, and successfully complete their online training without interruption or delay. This whole process, from install to quality of our event connect service, ran smoothly, allowing the Essex Army Cadet Force to enjoy their event without worrying about any technical failures.
"Fli-Fi were extremely professional and timely in there administration and technical advice. They delivered on a JIT basis at the time and date stated. The technical equipment that they provided met the criteria of the event. Delivery and installation was completed without disruption to our other core activities and there were no last minute dramas! I have complete confidence in this Company and will use again and prepared to recommend to other Units within our Organisation."
