We have found through experience that many people choose only to download updates to their mobile phones when connected to WiFi, for many good reasons. However, consider what may happen to the wireless connection when 200 people connect all at once. Updating 200 devices at once requires significant bandwidth, and while VoxR is designed to use as little as possible, this can present an issue if you’re trying to use VoxR immediately after connecting.
For this reason, we strongly recommend building in at least a 5-minute buffer separating the audience connecting to WiFi, and the start of your VoxR activities.
Important: This doesn’t necessarily mean that you must separate the start of the event from going online – unless you plan to open the event with a VoxR action.
The AV-Technician is the last person we would recommend because s/he has other things to do, and isn’t involved on the content level.
Important: The more frequent and content-related use you make of VoxR during the event, the more the person operating the control panel needs to be involved on a content level. For example, if your event involves a panel discussion, your operator would need to be able to select appropriate questions for the discussion and the event, meaning the operator either needs to know this information, or have in-event access to someone who knows.
VoxR is extremely modest.

For mobile connections, VoxR is optimally designed. For hotel / location WiFi, however, there is not a single tool in this world, because:
Both problems do not occur with either dedicated WiFi or mobile network usage.
