Turnkey Campground Wireless with 24/7 Support

With the impact of Covid- 19, steering people to outdoor venues for social gathering, vacationing, and remote work, WiFi has become a major focus and has quickly transitioned from an amenity to a necessity. With that in mind, Cozy Pond Camping Resort wanted to give their campers an at-home Wi-Fi experience of exceptional quality. A robust, secure & scalable cloud managed solution, that could be easily maintained, and 100% supported. During these uncertain times, they also wanted a system that could generate additional revenue for the park. Free basic internet would be provided as well as a premium tier where they could charge for enhanced bandwidth. The Premium plans would allow Guests to have an “at home experience” with ability to support Live TV and Audio streaming services, Video Conference Calls, multi-media devices including Apple TV and Roku. They wanted the resort to be under one network and include advanced enterprise features, including a splash page for guest login. Having one company that could design, architect, install and a centrally managed system that could be remotely monitored and supported was critical. A comprehensive enterprise-class wireless solution was required and Sigmawifi was the answer.
