Myriad Supply, a global provider of network infrastructure equipment, was selected by WBL Services to support the data transmission needs for Sunday's broadcast of the "Big Game"—America's most highly-watched sporting event.
The equipment provided by Myriad will connect over 5,000 media professionals from more than 100 countries to critical internet-based devices, such as phones, ticket scanning machines, video on demand appliances and computers. Myriad's routing and switching solutions will be utilized in the media and contractor compounds surrounding MetLife Stadium in New Jersey and the "Big Game" Boulevard in Midtown Manhattan.
A sporting event of enormous scale with over 100 million expected domestic viewers, the "Big Game" has fluid networking needs that are complex and require frequent revision. "Myriad has been a great partner that has been able to provide for all of our needs at a moment's notice," stated Bill Lipscomb, Senior Principal of WBL Services. "The environment we work in is constantly changing and Myriad Supply was able to meet and exceed our constantly changing needs."
WBL Services provides communications services and gear to large-scale venues domestically and globally, meeting the technology needs of over 170 annual events. WBL offers diverse network designs, supplying cutting-edge telecommunications services and support for CenturyLink Field and Event Center in Seattle, WA.
"We are very proud to provide mission critical equipment to WBL Services that will help millions of Americans enjoy an event that has become a national holiday," said Andrew Fisher, CEO of Myriad Supply. "Our commitment to customer service and focus on responsiveness has allowed us, in this instance and others, to quickly get the right technology in the hands of the right people to power enormously complex networks without a hitch."
