The Situation

The Airshow were in need of a secure Internet from a leased line to a series of points along a 2 mile stretch of the Southport coastline to facilitate the ticket entry for the show.

A strong a reliable telephony system was crucial for the communication for ground control and air traffic control, as well as the staff.

How Did We Help?

AdaptiveComms and Southport Airshow have previously worked together for the previous successful airshows and after being re-awarded a new contract, we knew we would need to continue going above and beyond for the show.

How we helped:

    • Temporarily connected a leased line that we managed to the roof of a Sefton-owned building, for the purpose of connecting point of sale terminals.
    • From the rooftop, we set up a transmitter that was used for the connectivity of 12 locations along the coast.
    • A combination of meshing and setting up a line of site connections to Southport pier to allow for multiple locations that could hit all the points.
    • We add a temporary analogue line extension from another point of the seafront, cabling across the coastal road and to shelters on the beach.


  • We created a hidden sub-network for the purpose of connecting point of sale terminals.


Southport Airshow were soaring into success with another incredible Airshow weekend – here’s to the next one!
