Bandwidth hogs brought to book with ultra dense Wi-Fi technology from Enterasys
Enterasys has launched a brand new Wi-Fi solution that can deliver high density Wi-Fi that can double normal HD video performance and support 2,000 access points (APs) with up to 32,000 users per controller.
identiFi solves issues associated with BYOD and seamless user experience in high density environments where bandwidth is often limited and service delivery is at best patchy or, at worst, unusable. It also addresses critical industry requirements including scalability, security and application performance to deliver near wired like performance.
Especially effective in high density environments such as sports stadia, concert and exhibition venues or hotel lobbies, identiFi has already proved its worth following last month’s installation at the NFL team, the New England Patriots’ stadium, in Boston.
At the Gillette Stadium, 38,000 New England Patriot fans can access useable, real time video, game stats and access to social networks, all within a Wi-Fi density of 4,000 clients (fans) per acre. The Patriots were seeking a solution to support this dense environment in which thousands of fan owned devices in a very small footprint required reliable, high performance access to real time multimedia streaming.
Fred Kirsch, Patriots’ VP of content and publishing, said, ‘Because of our unique desire to provide access for tens of thousands of users, we needed a stable, scalable network that could be easily and centrally managed by our existing IT staff. Enterasys met our demands with an end-to-end network solution that includes all the hardware, software, and wiring needed to provide reliable and stable Wi-Fi access.’
