OK, we should be doing some connectivity for the Reading Beer Festival next weekend (royal wedding weekend).
Hopefully we will have some public access wifi. We'll see. We have not done a lot of event stuff before so this is a bit of a pilot. I am probably routing a /20 IPv4 and a /48 IPv6 for it. No NAT in sight. NAT at a beer festival is like pissing the beer!
The main idea is for Internet access for the event staff, but public access should be interesting. Trying a ruckus AP as a hot spot. I think next year we need to plan for more widespread wifi usage, but hard to predict the usage.
No end of attempts to get BT to put lines in to a field fell flat on their face. Eventually we got the BT account team to sort it (well done Chris), just in the nick of time. Costing a fortune as ever, but next year we may be able to do more directly via Openreach. Dual redundant DSL with dual redundant 3G backup. Fingers crossed.
The downside - someone will probably have to be on-call to attend a beer festival and one of us will probably have to be there every day... Oh the hardship. :-)
