Jun, 2002 : Avaya Provides Network Services to World Cup


📅 - Communications systems provider Avaya Inc. (avaya.com), announced that its converged voice and data communications network, which is powering the operations for the 2002 FIFA World Cup, has carried nearly four terabytes of data in the first 14 days of the event.

A terabyte is a measure of computer storage capacity, and represents a thousand billion bytes (1,000 gigabytes).
Avaya said its network, which FIFA uses to handle mission-critical functions - such as stadium operations, logistics management for the 32 teams, media relations including provision of match statistics and information on players, and materials inventory among more than 15 other functions and applications - is performing at peak efficiency.
Avaya expects it will ultimately carry 10 terabytes of data or 10 trillion bytes during the course of the event.
