WiFi Network Expansion in Ilomantsi
At Ilomantsi, Parppeinvaara Rune Singer's Village, the expansion of WiFi network has started now that the museum has closed for winter. Currently there is WiFi connection only at Mesikkä Animal Museum and the museum shop. After expansion the network will cover the whole museum area making the use of the new mobile guide possible.
Through InterActive History project, the Parppeinvaara Rune Singer's Village will get its own mobile guide, which can be used with any browser anywhere, anytime. With the WiFi network especially tourists who don't have mobile data can utilize the mobile guide on-site and look for additional information regarding Ilomantsi's rich rune singing tradition and the museum itself.
The actual work will be conducted by Pogostan Tietoverkkopalvelut Oy and it will take approximately 1-2 weeks. A cable will be embedded in soil and 3-4 base stations will be installed in the museum buildings.
