On Super Bowl Sunday, Brocade’s network handled the data storm caused by throngs of smartphone-wielding fans at Levi’s Stadium, one of the most high-powered venues in sports. The network is built on Brocade’s core routers, switches, and the Brocade Network Advisor for simplified network management. According to the company, the network is composed of multiple network clusters, separating services like WiFi from IPTV, and connected by more than 400 miles of fiber/copper.
For the Sacramento Kings’ new Golden 1 Center, Brocade designed a 160-Gb backbone that can handle more than 500,000 Snapchat posts per second, as well as a Ruckus-designed next-generation WiFi installation with more than 1,000 access points.
