Wireless (Wi-Fi)

Wireless Information

The wireless infrastructure in the Caesars Palace conference center is newly renovated and is set up for wireless Internet access at NO CHARGE to conference attendees.

  • For newer devices supporting 5.0 GHz, look for SSID ILTACON_Preferred
  • For those with older devices at 2.4 GHZ, look for ILTACON_LegacyDevices
  • While in your guest room, please see the Guest Room steps below.

NOTE: In order to provide the best wireless experience possible for conference attendees, the ILTACON_LegacyDevices (2.4 GHz) signal will only be available in select areas of the convention center (). The ILTA Events mobile app will have additional details under the “Important Info” section.

Why is 2.4 GHz being offered in only limited areas in the conference center?

Nearly all of the mobile smartphones and tablets that have been made in the last 3 years support the better 5GHz Wi-Fi, which provides higher bandwidth (it's faster) and it operates on a much less constricted set of radio channels. This means that you can have more mobile devices in use simultaneously with 5GHz vs. 2.4GHz. Older devices like the iPhone 4 and 4S only support the 2.4GHz band (which is slower) and those devices have to compete with one another for the very limited radio band that 2.4GHz is forced to operate within.

When wireless access points (WAPs) are deployed and configured for customer use, they are setup based on anticipated needs. A WAP will contain a certain number of radios inside of it (typically 2, 4 or 8), and each radio can be configured to operate at either the older 2.4GHz band or at the newer 5GHz band. It can't do both. This creates a dilemma. Do you configure radios to use the older 2.4GHz band knowing that only a very small percentage of users need it? And if you do so, it will greatly reduce how many users with 5GHz devices can be simultaneously supported by the remaining radios. This is the dilemma faced by those who need to provide Wi-Fi to a large audience.

Based on our mobile device survey from a few months ago, we determined that only a very small percentage of attendees still carry an older device that is incapable of using the 5GHz Wi-Fi. The resort will make the older 2.4GHz signal available though in the Laptop Lounge area (in the foyer outside Pisa, across from Verona) and also in the Palace Ballroom where meals are served.
