French production company KM creates a variety of news and event-oriented programming for television. Among the events KM covers is the internationally famous Cannes Film Festival, for which the company deploys a large-scale television system and wireless network for the duration of the 25-day event. Founded in 1946, the Cannes Film Festival is held in the southern seaside city of Cannes, France, and previews new films of all genres, attracting VIPs, celebrities and media from around the world. As it has for the past five years, KM called upon technical partner ZyXEL to supply the hardware and technical expertise it needed to provide wireless connectivity for the 68th Cannes Film Festival in May of 2015.
"I use ZyXEL solutions to build networks in often extraordinary circumstances. In Cannes, this means deploying and securing a wireless network for over 15 days and nights, catering to teams that shoot and broadcast their programs, as well as for VIPs who wish to access the Internet. Under these conditions, I particularly appreciate the reliability and robustness of ZyXEL equipment.”
