•WebOps (Brandon Burton and Chris Turra) helped run the Mozilla booth at the SoCaL Linux Expo, demoing Keon and ZTE Open phones and having a great time promoting FirefoxOS at one of the biggest open source conferences in North America
•MWC 2014 is shaping up to be a big milestone for Mozilla, and IT played a key role in making it happen. Here’s a quick update from Albert Villarde from Barcelona:
- First off, hats off to Joel Braddock and Clarissa Sorenson from EUS. Joel was key to arranging all the logistics and keeping track of all the tasks, dates, and delivery! Clarissa is on the ground at MWC and has been nothing short of spectacular! She’s been mostly dedicated to installing FxOS builds and helping the QA team.
- Second, we’ve partnered with American AV (folks that did the 2013 Summit) to provide onsite support. This year, we’ve had to cover 2 large venues (MWC and the press event) plus a dozen other offsite gatherings. We could not have done this without their support.
- For the press event last night, we worked with the hotel to provide 200Mb capacity for our wifi. Last I heard between 300-400 press showed up.
- At the MWC “Stand” (aka Booth), we’ve prepared 2 transit feeds from the onsite provider (Fira). Our primary feed is a 100Mb “production” network fit to serve about 800 concurrent connections, of which half are assumed to be phones!
- In the last couple days, we overcame some logistics hurdles, hardware shortages, vendor network snafus and a power outage lasting 9 hours. Again, we could not have done this without contract help, experience with trade-shows, and quick thinking.
- On Stand, in addition to the transit connection, we prepped reference devices, laptops, mac minis (to run displays), tablets, an over-abundance of adapters of every variation, cables, cell power packs, ELMOS (projectors, not red toys), airports, socket server, roku, printer, switches, wifi controller, APs, 1000′ of ethernet cables, and of course a “control center” to come down to this –> MWC readiness!
