Fulham Football Club Tackles IT Infrastructure at Craven Cottage

Juniper Networks® announced that Fulham Football Club, a UK Premier League football club, has completed its new Local Area Network (LAN) infrastructure deployment using Juniper Networks EX3200 and EX4200 Series Ethernet Switches.

Growth in demand for LAN bandwidth from the ticket turnstiles, television networks and media commentators, required Fulham FC to invest in the network infrastructure that serves its stadium and training ground facilities. It needed to improve the capacity and resiliency of the network to ensure efficient operation on match days but also to prioritise video and data traffic crossing the LAN in order to provide a high-quality service for visiting media companies.
“Our network infrastructure was no longer able to deal with the peaks of traffic we see on home match days,” said Nicholas Pendlebury, IT Manager, Fulham FC. “It used to take us over two hours to produce a video replay of the match for player analysis; it now takes just 15 minutes. Juniper’s EX Series Ethernet Switches provide us with an easy-to manage network foundation. Secure and reliable, our network is now capable of managing high demand peak traffic, such as video, without interruption.”
