Minimum Mobile System Requirements:
  • Wi-Fi or cellular connection (for optimum performance, a Wi-Fi connection is recommended). Local area Wi-Fi or cellular network capable of supporting a concentration of one simultaneous connection for each ResponseWare device located in the same coverage area on the network. e.g., If a presenter wants to use 100 ResponseWare devices, their network needs to be able to support 100 simultaneous Wi-Fi connections within the area the devices are being used. The difference in a network that can support ResponseWare and a typical Wi-Fi network is that in typical use, all 100 devices are not in the same location or using the network at the exact same time.
