THE ACCORHOTELS ARENA, RELIES ON A SECURE AND POWERFUL NETWORK FOR ITS EVENTS

With nearly 130 events each year, the AccorHotels Arena is the 4th arena in the world. The arena provides 30 room configurations designed for sporting events and concerts and provides technological equipment with a powerful, secure and flexible integrated network, capable of satisfying the various technical requirements of each event. With a modifiable complex ready to accommodate many types of major events, the arena adapts to meet spectators’ needs and organizers’ constraints, day after day.

To support its transformation, the AccorHotels Arena was looking for a network capable of accommodating the technologies used in the Arena: user connection, telephony, WLAN network, video and displays of professional audio/video equipment. The AccorHotels Arena wanted a highly secure, agile network allowing it to adapt to the multiple configurations required for shows and events.

SOLUTIONS

  • Virtual Services Platform 9000 Series
  • Virtual Services Platform 4000 Series
  • Ethernet Routing Switch 4000 Series
 

A Highly Flexible Network

As part of its ongoing collaboration with the AccorHotels Arena, Avaya designed a flexible virtual network to meet the various objectives of the event venue, such as higher capacity, greater security for wireless access, faster WiFi connection times and IP multicast assistance for IP video flows.
 

A Highly Effective Solution for a Powerful Network

With Avaya, the AccorHotels Arena was able to implement a highly effective solution relying on a high-speed 10G backbone. The core of the solution is made up of high-performance VSP 9000 chassis, a VSP 4000 cluster and stackable PoE+ ERS 4800 switches. Avaya’s Cluster technology makes it possible to double the bandwidth, while providing for secure connections, thanks to immediate convergence times in the event of a problem. This makes it possible for the AHA to connect even the most sensitive applications such as video, telephony and professional audio and video technologies.
 
The COM solution provides for global administration. The next phase will be to implement the Avaya Fabric Connect technology using the SPB protocol, which will provide a new level of security (global mesh) and will facilitate IT operations, by allowing for configuration of only the access port while eliminating the configuration time needed for each change or the setup of new services. Once Avaya Fabric Connect is implemented, the IDEngine solution will offer comprehensive management of network security.
 
For Guillaume Lairloup, CIO of AccorHotels Arena, “All digital resources available to the AccorHotels Arena operate on a strong, flexible network. Regardless of the type of event, the Avaya network can manage it, without limitation.”
