Netadmin Systems keeps world’s largest LAN up and running

Solutions from Netadmin Systems, the market leader in next generation network OSS solutions in the Nordics, is once again being used to manage and monitor the performance of the giant LAN used at DreamHack, the world’s largest digital festival taking place November 22 – 25 in Jonkoping, Sweden.

DreamHack is the world’s largest digital festival and holds the official world record as world’s largest LAN party in the Guinness Book of Records. During 2009 DreamHack reached over 200.000 unique visitors with live activities around the World.

At the upcoming DreamHack Winter event the NETadmin system is once again being used to monitor network devices to optimize their performance, and to initiate any required remedial interventions before any network malfunctions can take effect.

Normally the NETadmin User Portal automatically provisions network services chosen by end users, lets them select the services they want, and enables them to pick out desired connection speeds or opt for various channel packages. Here, though, the User Portal will present organizers with a host of unique statistics concerning the performance of the network, and also enable festival visitors to participate in a fun-to-play IRL game.

Karl Andersson, one of the leaders of the team constructing the DreamHack network, is also a Solutions Architect at Netadmin Systems said: “Building the network on the world’s largest computer festival is all about building the network of the future. We do this by being efficient and automate the repetitive tasks, really the cornerstones of the NETadmin system. Thus we are able to build the equivalence of a small town city network in only five days for 10 000 fixed ports and for 20 000 mobile users. For me the future network is all about high speed (DreamHack is selling 1000 Gbps ports) and low latency to deliver the ultimate broadband fiber experience.”

DreamHack Winter 2012 is being held from 22nd to 25th of November at the Elmia Fair venue in Jonkoping, Sweden. The event is focused on everything and anything that can be done with computers, the Internet, digital entertainment and culture.
