ConnecTen Pushes the Limits with Airborne Engagement Live Stream

ConnecTen Pushes the Limits with Airborne Engagement Live Stream

Love knows no bounds, and neither does ConnecTen's commitment to keeping you connected, even in the most extraordinary circumstances. Recently, a daring customer approached us with a unique request: live stream his marriage proposal from a hot air balloon soaring above the New York City.

While the idea sent hearts aflutter, the technical challenges were undeniable. Live streaming at such altitudes, amidst skyscrapers and ever-changing terrain, is no easy feat. We knew it wouldn't be guaranteed, but fueled by optimism and the power of love, we decided to embark on this adventure together.

Preparation & Planning:

Knowing success hinged on meticulous planning, we dove into extensive research. We analyzed network coverage maps, consulted experts, and explored every possible solution. While New York and New Jersey offered some promise, guaranteeing a seamless signal above 2,000 feet remained a daunting task.

Transparency & Collaboration:

Transparency was paramount. We openly discussed the limitations with our customer, emphasizing the importance of a backup plan – recording the proposal offline for later sharing. Additionally, we recommended proposing at a lower altitude for a more reliable connection.

Taking Flight:

The big day arrived, and our hearts soared alongside the hot air balloon. Equipped with our trusty NetriFi 5G router, known for its ability to switch between networks and optimize signal strength, we meticulously monitored their journey. The proposal came around 1,000-1,200 feet, and for a thrilling moment, everything was perfect.

Beyond Expectations:

However, as they ascended further for sightseeing, the inevitable occurred. Around 2,200 feet, the live stream started buffering due to a weakened signal. But here's what truly defines this story – the network held! While not picture-perfect, the connection persisted, allowing snippets of the breathtaking moment to reach loved ones waiting below.

A Celebration of Innovation & Love:

Despite the unforeseen challenges, the proposal was a resounding success. The couple shared their joy with the world, and we celebrated a victory for love, innovation, and pushing the boundaries of what's possible.

This experience wasn't just about a successful live stream; it was about exceeding expectations, embracing challenges, and proving that with the right tools and unwavering commitment, even the most audacious dreams can take flight.
