"They required that it be open bandwidth with no constrictions for firewalls or port blocking," says Doug Watkins, president of Blast Communications."In a corporate environment, that's where you run into problems.Caterpillar has bandwidth, but [because of its firewalls], there was no way to use it with those restrictions."

In fact, the Caterpillar campus presented a host of challenges."Within the Caterpillar facility, they have dozens if not hundreds of 802.11 access points already running on their private network along with all kinds of other RF-based equipment for robotic automation," Watkins says.

"We backhauled to the water tower with Canopy and then deployed off of the water tower, again with Canopy," Watkins says."Canopy got the bandwidth to the water tower from our existing facilities about seven miles away.Then, we used the Advantage Access Point with hardware scheduling to deliver to the two areas," [the stage area and press tents].
The Motorola Canopy solution allowed ultra-fast deployment of the data connections needed for the event.In fact, according to Watkins, "we spent as much time running around getting the logistics out of the way,like all of our insurance affidavits,as we did deploying the Canopy unit."

"We had plans for an orderly transition, but it ended up being less than orderly due to less-than-foreseeable circumstances," Doug Watkins, manager of Blast Communications, explained.

XLiNet was to maintain the operation while Blast Communications transitioned aspects of the customer base one at a time.
Watkins explained that his company was about a week from making the orderly transition when technical difficulties forced the early move.
"Once we realized there were physical circuit problems on Monday, we decided it would be easier to transition the customers to our network, rather than fight to get those circumstances overcome," Watkins said.
...
Watkins explained that the two companies decided to fix the immediate problem of providing Internet access to XLiNet users before hashing out the business-related details.
"Whatever we needed to do to take care of it (the problem), we've both been doing, and we'll take care of the details later," Watkins said.
Blast Communications customers who are still without Internet service should call technical support at 375-9600, ext. 1.VisionFriendly.com customers should call 365-1500.
