Trivia Wifi not so Trivial at Alzheimer's Australia Fundraiser

When you have 90 IPads, to get ready for a night of cloud-hosted Trivia, Auctions and all round fun for a good cause, you better have good Wifi. Fortunately for Alzheimer's Australia they had Haycom looking after them.

Barrett Evolution was engaged to provide an Event Wifi System and 4G Service to supplement the venues existing services. Configuration of the 90 iPads had to be done onsite due to a short lead-time but thanks to a massive combined effort the guests enjoyed a marvelous night and their generosity will help continue the fight against Dementia.

Barrett Evolution Now BattleHack Partner

Barrett Evolution has joined SendGridTwilioLeapMotion and General Assembly as the newest Partner for the PayPal Global BattleHack competition in Sydney later this month.  The aim of BattleHack is simple, 
“Create an app that helps solve a local problem”.
The catch is you have only 24hrs to do it and your team is battling hundreds of other developers in the same room. The winner from each city gets a cool Axe Trophy and a trip to Silicon Valley for a chance to win $100,000!
Barrett Evolution provided the Network Infrastructure for the event including Enterprise Class WiFi for the 600+ competitor devices and technical support for the entire 36hours of the event, bring on the Caffeine!
