It’s not surprising to see an ATM or a kiosk at an event. In today’s fast-paced world it’s important to have devices that enable digital convenience. However, these devices need connectivity in order to function properly, connectivity that can oftentimes run into issues when trying to access a crowded cell tower. That is why we created Event Pulse, an OptConnect feature that gives your device a continuous connection so that it gets priority on the cell tower.
This feature enables our customer’s devices to maintain reliable connectivity when other solution providers fail, and it is included in our industry-leading bundle of managed services at no additional cost to you.
How it Works
Events are typically crowded, and when that’s the case, the cell tower has limited capabilities and only so many spots for connections. Therefore, if a device goes offline, it disconnects, and other connections get the priority.
To fix this issue, Event Pulse sends a continuous message back and forth between the Optconnect device and the cell tower so that it maintains its connection.
Another issue devices face at events is cell tower capacity. When the tower is at capacity, and a device tries to connect, you’re going to have communication problems. With the feature’s continuous connection, you won’t have to worry about that or deal with the headache, stress, and lost revenue that results from lost connectivity with other providers.
Activating Event Pulse
Put simply, Event Pulse gives your device a continuous connection for priority connectivity. This greatly decreases the likelihood of you running into connection issues as a result of crowded spaces like events. OptConnect’s Event Pulse puts you at the front of the line for your connectivity and keeps you there ensuring greater uptime and reliability compared to the competition.

Using Event Pulse
We find that Event Pulse works best for devices deployed at events. A great example of this feature in use is this testimonial from MOBILEMONEY, a family-owned and operated ATM powerhouse.
Since partnering with OptConnect, MOBILEMONEY has used Event Pulse’s features for multiple events across the country. For a company whose primary focus is live events, Event Pulse has been a real life saver. Their ATMs are able to process transactions reliably even when the network is overloaded with additional traffic from an event.
“OptConnect’s remote capabilities throughout the country made them more reliable in the live event space,” said Alex Patterson, Director of Event Operations at MOBILEMONEY. “Events are an integral part of our business, and we needed connectivity that we could count on.
