Avaya Completes SDN Fx Implementation for Dubai Icon Burj Khalifa for more efficient network management
Avaya has implemented Avaya’s SDN Fx technology within Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. This next-generation technology infrastructure will enable guests, tenants, and IT teams to enjoy the best network quality experience, with no downtime.

A mixed-use tower, Burj Khalifa has residences, offices, common areas, leisure attractions, and much more. To meet tenants and visitors service-level expectations, it requires a networking platform that is secure, flexible, scalable and robust. This is now enabled with SDN Fx, Avaya’s fabric-based, software-defined network architecture for ‘Simplicity Everywhere’.

With Avaya’s SDN Fx networking technology, Burj Khalifa will also benefit from effortless and efficient network roll-out, while ensuring reliability in service delivery and network access. From Wi-Fi accessibility to allowing access to personal devices, Avaya’s SDN Fx allows these to be managed and provisioned quickly, leading to happier tenants and visitors, and more efficient network management.

Avaya’s SDN Fx, announced globally in February 2015, is making strong inroads into iconic global projects and structures. The implementation of SDN Fx at Burj Khalifa represents a significant opportunity for Avaya to align itself with innovative global icons in the UAE and the region, the company said.
