Listen to this article

Sevens7 and Sevens7 IT have been contracted by computer giant Dell to produce and manage a free Internet café at Beach Break Live. The Dell Dome will be hosted at the event that takes place in South Wales from June 14-18.

Dell is headline sponsoring the festival and has engaged Sevens7 to manage the café for the third year running.

The Dell Dome will have 24 hard-wired laptops provided and maintained by sevens7 IT. These are available for students to use to check their exam results and keep up to date with social networks throughout the weekend.

The Dell Dome will be open from 10am until 8pm each day and will offer more than just Internet connection, with a chill out area and giveaways over the course of the event.

An uninterrupted service, delivering 20mbps of bandwidth, will be provided by using two satellite systems that run simultaneously via a load balancer, meaning that if one dish were to fail the other would take over and ensure a seamless service.

Hel’s Angels has been engaged to run the café and staff the facility as soon as it is live.
