Objectives

  • Facilitate WiFi logins through social networks that guests already use and trust.
  • Show museum management team valuable data and reports.
  • Personalize the guest experience using the data collected.

Installation

The USS Midway partnered with Purple, Equinox Telecom and Ruckus Wireless for the WiFi installation. Ruckus was chosen because their technology creates a robust, reliable WiFi infrastructure in even the most challenging and unusual environments.

Once it was proven that the Ruckus access points solved the connection and signal problems the ship had previously experienced, the door was open to implement some of the smartest technology around. This is where Purple comes in.
