ATG helps the Monterey Jazz Festival get some tasty WiFi

Back in September, we partnered with Comcast ( and Meraki, Inc. (, makers of some of the finest mesh wireless gear around, to provide WiFi access to the folks attending the Monterey Jazz Festival at the Monterey County Fairgrounds throughout all three days of the event.  Over 900 patrons made use of the free Internet access, primarily using iPads and iPhones but a good number of Droids showed up, too.

The wireless mesh network, which was comprised of a mix of Meraki MR66, MR58 and MR16 access points, was also the used for a web cast that streamed live from the Night Club venue every night and was available through the MJF website ( as well as National Public Radio ( The web cast was watched by people from all 50 states as well as 59 countries worldwide.

There was also a team from Yamaha’s piano division conducting an intriguing experiment, streaming MIDI, video and audio information in conjunction with a beta test of Yamaha’s RemoteLive technology, enabling the broadcast of select musical performances live and in real time from a Disklavier performing on-site at the Festival to several off-site Disklaviers around the world.
