The Technology Services Team

TCF Center's Technology Services Department manages a turn-key operation where the show manager, or their vendor, provides the content, and TCF Center technicians broadcast it through the network's infrastructure. TCF Center technicians can, and often do, create the content on of behalf of users.

The in-house team gives customers access to the facilities digital signage, robust WiFi network and an extensive fiber network for broadcasting and Internet connections that can upgrade customers to 10G, depending on the needs of their event. 

For enhanced technology services such as fiber connectivity, contact your event manager.

Free Robust Wifi Throughout TCF Center

A robust FREE WiFi system supports users throughout TCF Center. Pre-planning for your event will insure your event will minimize cross-channel interference and allow for a hi-speed user experience. If your event indicates hi-usage, our technicians can design a custom wireless array based on your anticipated traffic patterns and frequent congregation areas, to manage the network during your event and insure a smooth WiFi experience in your location.

Streaming applications and conference voting systems may require a wired services to insure uninterrupted connection. Make sure your event planner understands exactly what Internet applications will be used for your event so that TCF Center Technology Services technicians can design a system to meet your needs.

5GHz is the key: before you come on site, make sure you have a device that is 5GHz capable. It will not matter if you “just bought it,” there are still PC manufactures that use 2.4GHz only devices to entice you with a lower cost computer. 2.4GHz is highly interfered with and may not do well in an environment like events. So much so, that a lot of companies no longer provide 2.4GHz in some areas of their facilities. You can get a USB dual-band wireless adaptor (yes another adaptor) which will grant to 5GHz if you only have 2.4GHz. If you are not sure what you have, you can likely ask your IT team to take a look and let you know.
