What Wi-Fi network equipment does Rafiky recommend?

 

Are there any special network requirements?

Yes. To connect to the conference, you must have at least 4/6 Mbps upload and download speed of the Internet. A wired connection using a LAN (Ethernet) cable is also recommended.

 

Is there a minimum distance to maintain (from the speakers) for participants who want to hear the translation on their devices?

No. In relation to the wifi connection, participants can move freely while listening to the translation. They can eventually switch to mobile data (3G / 4G / LTE) to listen to the streaming from any point of the location.

 

What is the maximum number of people who can connect to a broadcast over Wi-Fi?

The Rafiky system can support up to 50,000 listeners. However, this number will also depend on the local network capabilities.

 

Is it possible to use different Wi-Fi hotspots to avoid Wi-Fi overload?

Yes, you can use multiple Wi-Fi hotspots but they all need to be connected to the same network.

 

How many MB are used per hour per user?

Network
usage : Internet usage (if online streaming is enabled):
– Broadcaster software (streaming on server): upload up to 100MB / h, download up to 4MB / h
– App listener (listen from server): up at 60 MB / h (for a smartphone)

Internet use (if streaming only locally):
– Broadcasting software: upload / download up to 4 MB / h
– Listener: upload / download up to 1 MB / h (for a smartphone)

 

Cosa succede se si perde la connessione Internet durante la trasmissione?  

Se i partecipanti stanno già ascoltando la traduzione, sono comunque in grado di ascoltare lo streaming purché non chiudano l’applicazione.
Se i partecipanti non stanno ancora ascoltando la traduzione, hanno bisogno di una connessione Internet altrimenti non possono collegarsi allo streaming.
Gli ascoltatori potranno comunque utilizzare i propri dati mobili 3G / 4G / LTE per ascoltare con il nostro Wi-Fi.
