Our network engineers don’t get the credit they deserve.
For months leading up to the event, a handful of individuals work behind-the-scenes to plan an extensive network infrastructure capable of allowing 1000+ people to game without interruption during the weekend of Gamers for Giving.
This year, we’ve made a few improvements to our hardware thanks to our friends at ADTRAN.
ADTRAN is a leading global provider of networking and communications equipment. Their products enable voice, data, video and Internet communications across a variety of network infrastructures. Many of their product solutions are currently in use by service providers, private enterprises, government organizations and millions of individual users worldwide.
As anyone who has run LAN parties knows, network equipment for an event of our size can be quite expensive. Thankfully, with ADTRAN’s support, we’re able to scale our hardware for the increased number of connections at this year’s Gamers for Giving without worrying about the budget.
We’re looking forward to everyone enjoying a weekend of gaming at this year’s event! We’ll see you on April 28th and 29th at the EMU Convocation Center.
