Massive wireless network set up in Russia for the Winter Olympics

Russia is setting up a massive wireless network in the city of Sochi in preparation for the influx of visitors that will flood the already sprawling city for the Winter Olympics next month. The new network will be capable of handling up to 54Tbps of traffic once the engineers finish putting the final touches on it. Russia is also investing billions to upgrade Sochi’s electric power grid, its transportation system, and even its sewage treatment facilities. 

Avaya engineers are putting the final touches on a network capable of handling up to 54Tbps of traffic when the Winter Olympics opens on February 7 in the Russian city of Sochi. Sochi itself is a sprawling city of 350,000 people located on the Black Sea. Archeologists have found human remains in the area that date back tens of thousands of years. Today, Sochi’s subtropical climate makes it a popular Russian tourist spot. The two locations where the Olympics will take place—the Olympic village in Sochi and a tight cluster of Alpine venues in the nearby Krasnaya Polyana Mountains—are completely new construction, so this project represents a greenfield environment for Avaya.
