Ad Guard WiFi at the Olympics in Rio

For the first time, the DFB (German Football Association) protects their assets in the “German House” at the Olympics by using an electronic article surveillance system. Primarily tablet-computers which are laid out there for free use, are protected.  They can be used by visitors to learn about the current state of play or to communicate with home.

The WG Ad Guard Wifi was chosen for this temporary installation during the Olympics and the Paralympics.

The reasons:

  • Excellent detection performance.
  • Mechanical robustness.
  • Easy to be personalized for an event.

But eventually the WiFi features hat completely convinced them.

The system was installed by the carpenters and adjusted remotely by WG Global via the internet from WG-Global´s office in Germany.
