Broadband service provider Infinet Wireless implemented a point-to-point solution in Acapulco (Mexico), providing connectivity for Wi-Fi service on-site and transmission of videos in the Autocinema Acapulco Mundo Imperial, Mexico’s largest drive-in.
The ongoing pandemic has been a catalyst for change in both business and the leisure industry.
As a solution to the ailing industry, Mexico’s Administradora Pacífico Imperial has created a new entertainment space.
With Infinet’s technological implementation the Autocinema Acapulco Mundo Imperial drive-in managed to establish connectivity in the whole entertainment space to provide the Wi-Fi service at more than ten points of sales and booths, as well as transfer video signal for CCTV cameras, allowing security service to track movement of workers and assistants.
The installation began in July 2020, covering more than 25 thousand m2, without any additional constructions or basement it could rely on.
The adaptation work ended in August 2020. To this date, the Autocinema Acapulco Mundo Imperial is Mexico’s largest drive-in, with a capacity of up to 300 vehicles for the benefit of hundreds of tourists and citizens, all while maintaining “social distance”.
Carlos De Lamadrid, business development manager in LATAM, summed up said: «A few years ago, drive-ins almost lost their popularity because of the rise of video-on-demand platforms. But this year is definitely a game-changer, and drive-ins turned out to be a safe way of recreating in public places during the pandemic.”
