About Administradora Pacifico Imperial
Administradora Pacifico Imperial is a subsidiary of Grupo Mundo Imperial, an industry leader in hospitality and entertainment, iconic within Acapulco de Juarez, the coastal city famed for its tourism, conventions and entertainment. The subsidiary has created a leisure space to support the film industry in the midst of the global crisis and make use of the best screen technology, sound, applications and wireless connectivity with Infinet Wireless solutions. Today, Autocinema Acapulco Mundo Imperial is Mexico’s largest drive-in, with a capacity of up to 300 vehicles for the benefit of hundreds of tourists and citizens, all while maintaining “social distance”.
Construction of the Autocinema Acapulco Mundo Imperial started in July 2020 covering more than 25 thousand square meters and was completed in August 2020. The project required connectivity throughout the entertainment area to provide Internet service at sale points and booths, as well as for CCTV cameras.
The project required a robust, point-to-point wireless solution that could withstand extreme weather conditions and deliver low latency.
The Autocinema Acapulco Mundo Imperial has installed two point-to-point links covering 150 meters each. One transports video and the other manages the internet service. To date, the project deploys four InfiLINK 2x2 LITE R5000-Smn units, a 5 GHz point-to-point unit, a net performance of up to 180 Mbps, an integrated dual-pol antenna, 19 dBi, a capacity of 8 Mbps to 300 Mbps for InfiLINK 2x2 LITE subscriber terminals, in 5 and 6 GHz frequency bands; and four lightning protection units, anLPU (Lightning Protection Unit) for the Infinet Wireless hardware.
Bemira, the company’s technological partner, supplied the equipment, designed deployment of the links, and carried out support for the official opening of the drive-in.
Due to its experience and performance, we proposed to apply Infinet Wireless technology in the drive-in, considering it as the best option in solutions due to its quality, range, results in external areas, price and flexibility in its configurations; precisely what the client required to meet the connectivity needs of the first drive-in in Acapulco. Our client, Grupo Mundo Imperial, is completely satisfied,
said Rafael Cortez, CEO of Bemira S.A. de C.V.
"A few years ago, drive-ins almost lost their popularity because of the rise of video-on-demand platforms. But this year is definitely a game-changer, and drive-ins turned out to be a safe way of recreating in public places during the pandemic. We at Infinet Wireless are proud to provide reliable connectivity with our Point-to-Point solutions which now form part of technological infrastructure of the Autocinema Acapulco Mundo Imperial drive-in, a super trendy spot in Mexico now’, Carlos De Lamadrid, Business Development Manager in LATAM, summed up.
This project was supervised by Avantec, an official distributor of Infinet Wireless in Mexico.
The main benefit of Infinet’s wireless solution was in minimizing costs by avoiding the need to demolish infrastructure to connect booths and points of sale. Instead, highly reliable Infinet Wireless links were established.
By not requiring civil works for the installation of the links, the delivery time for the start of operations was reduced, to the benefit of hundreds of citizens and tourists. Currently, the infrastructure of Autocinema Acapulco of Mundo Imperial is working successfully.
“Our connectivity projects have been carried out through the integration of Bemira, making use of the best technology available in the market, which has allowed us to maintain reliable and efficient telecommunications in terms of cost and time. Now that we know the Infinet Wireless brand, we are sure that future projects will be carried out with IW links and will be implemented hand in hand with local and certified integrators, such as Bemira,” added Mr. Simón Quiñones Orozco, project director of Mundo Imperial Group.
