Time Warner Cable has teamed up with Ruckus Wireless to bring high-capacity Wi-Fi to this year’s Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Ruckus Wireless’ patented Smart Wi-Fi system enables the arena to provide equally powerful Wi-Fi service to all public seating areas, locker rooms, luxury suites, concourses, and back office areas. This latest system allows the arena to support the broadband demands of thousands of active devices, such as smartphones, laptops, iPads, and other wireless only devices—so attendees can stream and upload video, surf the web, or use social media without any interruption or sacrifice in transmission quality.
