Load In & Out Plan


CTICC 2- IMPORTANT

The CTICC 2 marshaling yard is much smaller compared to CTICC 1, therefore for build-up and breakdown all small vehicles must park at P5. All larger vehicles will be allocated one hour each to offload at the CTICC 2 then proceed to park at the CTICC 1 marshaling yard. Due to the space, we cannot afford to have vehicles parked at the CTICC 2  marshalling yard due to traffic and major delays.

WIRELESS INTERFERENCE

As per the CTICC Client Manual, private wireless routers, access points or broadcasts, i.e. any IEEE 802.11 wireless broadcasts, are not permitted within the CTICC. Private wireless networks are often unstable and do not function as intended during events. This is due to the myriad competing and overlapping wireless networks operating in close proximity to each other. The more wireless networks in operation, the more interference is generated resulting in a less stable wireless connection for all parties. In many cases, internet connectivity will not be possible at all via a wireless connection. It is for this reason that CTICC reserves the right to cease any Non-CTICC wireless networks in order to mitigate wireless interference in the venue.

In order to go some way to mitigate wireless interference, devices used to connect to CTICC’s wireless services must be 5GHz frequency band compatible. While 5GHz compatibility will not guarantee wireless access, it will improve the chances of achieving connectivity.

Please note that the CTICC always advise that event critical services, e.g. those for demonstrations or presentations use, are provided as a dedicated, hard wired connection. This will ensure that there is no interruption to internet connectivity, as would be the risk with a wireless internet service.
