The Canary Wharf Group wanted to explore how wifi could support a better retail experience for consumers and provide a better smart city living experience in the longer-term. The challenge was to provide connectivity to the more than 100,000 people who work in the Canary Wharf's 16 million square feet of office, retail and leisure space.
O2 Wifi provides a free wifi connection around the entire Canary Wharf estate users do not have to be O2 customers to use the service. Anyone who has connected to O2 Wifi in any other location is automatically connected when they arrive in the Canary Wharf coverage area. Easy, reliable public wifi, both indoors and outside, across the Canary Wharf site
"This is how organisations need to approach wifi and digital services now.. They're not useful add-ons – they're essential parts of a functional, successful enterprise or community." Eric Van der Kleij, Specialist Technology Advisor to Canary Wharf Group.
