Wireless Clients And Bandwidth
Tracking the wireless bandwidth and clients on the network is a fundamental and critical aspect to making sure fans get the most flawless Wi-Fi experience possible before, during and after a game. The real-time data allows IT teams to discover, find and locate network issues that must be fixed immediately.
"If there's a very large dip or spike in bandwidth, that indicates something has gone wrong. That's what we look for -- those big changes in bandwidth and in client counts," said Reed.
Extreme Networks and partners also specifically track the bandwidth usage of media and weather outlets at the game including CNN, ABC News, CBS News, MSN, Fox News, NBC News, National Weather Service, Weather Channel and Weather Underground.
