Winter Olympics 2018 - Data Network
« on: January 30, 2018, 01:01:51 PM »
Hi guys.

Just curious.  Do any of you know who is providing the data network for the Winter Olympics this year?  Avaya has done it for the past 2 or 3 times, but I haven't heard anything from them or Extreme this time around.

Thanks.

I see.  Thanks.

Looks like they signed up since 2016.

I think Huawei supports SPB, so Avaya/Extreme would be there in spirit.   ;D
