Extreme Networks successfully completes a large-scale network overhaul of DWTC

Extreme Networks today announced it has successfully completed a large-scale network overhaul for the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) increasing the network capacity of the venue tenfold. As a result of deploying Extreme solutions, such as Extreme Fabric Connect and ExtremeAnalytics, DWTC can offer a variety of next-generation digital applications, including media displays and contactless engagement technologies, more robust security and improved health and safety measures.

To make Dubai the world’s leading destination for major exhibitions, conferences and events, including GITEX GLOBAL 2021, and in anticipation of a 50% year-on-year increase in network traffic, DWTC turned to Extreme. Together, they have designed a converged IP network infrastructure powered by industry-leading solutions, such as Extreme Fabric Connect and ExtremeAnalytics. By leveraging ExtremeAnalytics, the team at DWTC will gain greater visibility into foot traffic patterns, congregation areas, concessions traffic and overall app usage throughout its events. These insights will allow them to optimize venue operations and provide more personalized experiences for all attendees.

Farid Farouq, Vice President, IT, Procurement and Contracts, Dubai World Trade Centre commented “With large exhibitions on the horizon, the world is looking to Dubai to set new standards for mega-events. We have risen to this opportunity to deliver on Dubai World Trade Centre’s mission of being a world-leading venue for conferences, exhibitions and events and providing a world-class business networking platform with integrated end-to-end services. Thanks to Extreme’s networking solutions we can do just that and offer best-in-class exhibitor and visitor experiences.”
