World Cup 2022 | Why Extreme Networks was chosen by the stadiums?

Premier Mellanox Selections: best-selling Mellanox Switches, Network Cards, and Cables

The largest athletic event in the world, the 2022 World Cup, began on Sunday at Al Bayt Stadium in Qatar. But do you understand how networking and stadiums with tens of thousands of seats are related?

Business and IT executives in the National Football League originally introduced team websites, then first-generation, free Wi-Fi that was available throughout the stadium starting a decade ago for fans looking to access the Internet for results, highlights, and social media to share their experiences.

Early carrier cellular services and stadium Wi-Fi networks could not keep up with the growth of smartphones. Both have developed since then and are currently used in numerous NFL stadiums, including Wi-Fi version 6 technology (which helps with mobile ticketing). Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS), networks of antennas used to increase the coverage of public cellular wireless networks (like Verizon 5G), should also be added. It should come as no surprise that major networks are supporting more devices and apps. For instance, the 2017-built Mercedes Benz Stadium for the Atlanta Falcons had a Passive Optical Network (PON) with more than 4,000 kilometers of fiber. In addition to more than 2,500 huge IPTVs, security cameras, point-of-sale systems, digital signage, and back-office systems, it provides data transmission to and from wireless access points.

In addition, many NFL stadiums chose Extreme Networks for the Wi-Fi and its analytics offering. Extreme Networks is an American networking company based in San Jose, California. Extreme Networks creates software for network administration, policy, analytics, security, and access controls in addition to designing, developing, and producing wired and wireless network infrastructure hardware.

Among the ExtremeSwitching Products, one series is worthy of note – Extreme Summit X430 Series switches.

Extreme Summit X430 Series

Overview

The Extreme Networks Summit X430 series Gigabit Ethernet standalone switches provide network edge connectivity for enterprises, branch offices, and small and medium-sized businesses. Summit X430 series are available in 28- or 52-port 10/100/1000 Mpps port models 8 or 24 port 10/100/1000 Mpps IEEE 802.3at PoE models and are ideal for network convergence of Unified Communications, wireless mobility, streaming media and multicast traffic on a single open fabric edge network. The Summit X430 leverages a compact 1RU and 10-inch deep form factor, along with a low volume operating mode that makes it ideal for open office and wiring closet environments. Summit X430 series switches support up to 4 fixed front panel 100/1000BASE-X (SFP) unpopulated ports (two SFP ports on the 8 port PoE+ switch) that can be utilized for high-speed backbone or link aggregation connections between wiring closets.

Summit X430 series simplifies network operation by using the ExtremeXOS, a modular operating system (OS) that spans all Extreme Networks Summit and BlackDiamond Ethernet switches. Powered by ExtremeXOS, the Summit X430 series enables organizations to build highly resilient and secure edge networks that support high network uptime, simplified management, increased operational efficiency with low total cost of ownership. The Summit X430 provides exceptional Policy-based QoS with advanced traffic management for converged applications. With eight hardware queues per port to support granular (8kbps-1Mbps) traffic classification, the Summit X430 provides flexible yet reliable solution for converged data, voice and video traffic.
