In March 2017, XCommNet supplied HSBC’s Entrepreneurs Exchange event with the high-speed internet connection required for live-streaming. XCommNet worked closely with BrightTALK, the company behind the live-stream itself, to ensure flawless results.
BrightTALK initially requested we survey two of the locations in London where an internet connection was not immediately available; Lancaster House and an HSBC office on St James’s Street. The survey enabled us to propose a combination of equipment and SIM providers that would most effectively meet their requirements. We always tailor our approach to our clients’ specific needs to ensure maximum effectiveness.
The event was an opportunity to hear practical insights from successful entrepreneurs. It became a number one trending topic on Twitter and featured appearances from Peter Williams, Jack Wills, Simon Woodrooffe, CBE, Yo! Sushi, Jon Wright, and Innocent Drinks. Thanks to XCommNet, it could be viewed in high definition by people all over the world, demonstrating our reliability, professionalism, and high quality of service.
