How early should we contact Moscone Telecom to discuss our Networks needs?
As early as possible. Three to four months prior to move-in (especially for larger more complex events) is ideal. We realize that requirements often change during this period but we have found that starting the process as early as possible minimizes errors and misunderstandings.
What type of information do you need from us to produce a quote?
Pretty much any and all information you have concerning your network requirements. As a guideline use the following list.
- Location of each room, booth, concourse, lobby, or foyer where service is needed.
- Total number of devices being connected in each location.
- Note whether you wish to have us provide hubs and cabling. (Please note that having a third party provide hubs and cabling could effect your discount and level of service we provide.)
- Any special needs, such as private networks or VPN tunnels.
If we need to bring a T1 circuit in from our home office, can Moscone facilitate this?
Yes, we can manage this from both ends or just from the Moscone side.
We would like a large Cyber Café and several remote kiosks; does Moscone have products and services to facilitate these?
Yes, we can design and implement a network to fit whatever your needs may be.
