AmericasMart Gets Re-Wired for Show
January 4, 2013,
ATLANTA-AmericasMart Atlanta has partnered with Verizon Wireless to create a fully functional wireless communications environment spanning its entire facility, said parent company AMC, Inc.
A new antenna system boosts cellular network strength and capacity allows smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices to access the Internet, send text messages and quickly share photos and videos to social networking sites. The system is in place for next week's markets - The Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market and The Atlanta International Area Rug Market featuring the National Oriental Rug Show.
Coverage encompasses all AmericasMart and Atlanta Convention Center at AmericasMart spaces to deliver wireless transmission in all environments, including interior corridors, loading docks and areas shielded by marble and stone wall and floor construction. Verizon Wireless customers at the Markets will be able to access the 4G network via a large variety of Verizon-powered devices, AMC said.
