Financial technology (a.k.a. fintech) is on a fast track, with new tools, technologies, APIs, platforms and more rolling out in record time. One of the best ways to keep pace is by attending FinDEVr, the annual event dedicated to technologists in the financial, banking and payments sectors.
Held on March 21-22 at Chelsea’s Metropolitan Pavilion, FinDEVr 2017 New York captivated hundreds of attendees with its single-track agenda centered on 15-minute presentations. Ample bandwidth was provided by Rainbow Broadband, which supplied Gigabit services to power multiple WiFi networks, plus a dedicated hard line for stage use. With its finance technology focus and a plugged-in crowd constantly sharing on social media, total reliability of the Internet connection throughout FinDEVr was essential. Rainbow Broadband came through with zero service interruptions, and symmetrical bandwidth enabled extremely fast upload times. As it always does with sizable gatherings, Rainbow Broadband supplied event organizers with hourly usage statistics and updates live from their onsite technician.
“FinDEVr is helping to spark rapid progress in fintech,” says Russ Hamm, President of Rainbow Broadband. “Developer’s conferences, in particular, generate high levels of upload and download activity, which we were ready to support. Rainbow Broadband’s expertise in connecting both events and financial businesses across NYC made us feel right at home with FinDEVr.”
