INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY GENERAL INFORMATION The technological resources in our facility are reliable, with connections and power readily and plentifully available in almost all locations. A variety of information technology services integrating voice, video and data communications are available at the SCA, made possible by our infrastructure of fiber optic and high speed copper cabling. The Data Network is powered by Juniper Networks and designed with a 20 Gigabit backbone and Switched Gigabit ports throughout the building. Internet connectivity is supplied via fiber connections. Wifi wiring is available throughout the arena. Telephone service Digital service, and analog lines or expanded calling capabilities may be purchased. Two-way radios Structured on a 800Mhz frequency, this internal system permits 2-way communications spanning 3 city blocks. Two-way radios can be made available for show management and key individuals involved with the operation of an event. This open line of communication allows immediate contact with SCA Event Managers, Floor Supervisors and other personnel. DATA COMMUNICATIONS Copper cabling SCA's data network is cabled with Category 6 copper wiring that supports Gigabit Ethernet and other network protocols. Our Cat-6 copper wiring infrastructure is suitable for 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX/1000BASE-T (Gigabit Ethernet). Data networking The backbone of SCA's data network consists of Juniper Networks gigabit fiber switches that link all other distribution frames in the building. SCA's data network was design with reliability and performance in mind. The backbone switches are deployed as highly available pairs, to prevent disruptions. The EAPS protocol provides fast protection switching to Layer 2 switches interconnected in an Ethernet ring topology, and offers the advantage of con-verging in less than 1 second when a link in the ring breaks. An Ethernet ring built using EAPS can have resilience comparable to that provided by SONET rings, at a lower cost and with fewer restraints (such as ring size). This solution allows for the creation of Virtual Isolated Networks to provide the highest level of security. Monitoring and reporting are accomplished by our internal staff via RMON. INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY, CONTINUED Internet connectivity Our production internet is provided through a fiber-optic circuit that can be provisioned to upstream and downstream based on event needs. Our service provider for this circuit is VinaKom communications. Please ask event manager for cost. For broadcasting audio and/or video over the internet, we highly recommend a wired internet connection. We can extend this connection virtually anywhere in the building and you can enjoy a reliable low latency connection to your upstream server! Wireless Network The SCA is equipped with the next generation of Rukus Networks wireless networking devices to provide a truly scalable WLAN solution. This solution provides the security and manageability required by enterprises and service providers alike. The Extreme Network Switch Software system provides a secure, highly scalable, cost-effective solution based on the IEEE 802.11standard. Strong wireless service is provided throughout the arena for an outstanding mobility experience! We are committed to presenting a website that is straightforward, fast, easy to navigate, and loaded with genuinely useful information and resources.
