GuangZhou, China, June 28, 2010 - WebMux provides smooth network operation for the 2010 Asia Games.
The 16th Asia Games, the world's second largest sports competition after the Olympic Games, will be held
from November 12-27, 2010 in GuangZhou, China. Since Novemeber of 2009, the GuangZhou Asian Games Organising
Committee (GAGOC) has been busy, with a number of facilities starting operation for the Asia Games since then.
Under the guidiance of the GAGOC, several hospitals, ticket vendors, and a variety of event groups and projects
were all connected together in one large network. Traffic in the network can peak to 9GB/s. GAGOC selected
WebMux load balancers from CAI Networks to handle all the pre-events traffic for the 2010 Asia Games in the
fall of 2009 after thorough deliberating and performance testing.
Since November, WebMux load balancers have been providing smooth and non-stop network flow for GAGOC and
the wide range of groups, countries, events, projects, and organizations involved in the upcoming Asia Games.
Included among the tasks performed were millions of ticket sales and more than 100,000 orginazers and volunteers
daily network activities. Mr. Rao Jian, Deputy Director of GAGOC′s Information Technology & Telecommunications
Department, is highly pleased with the smooth operation in AGIS. WebMux, as a part of the Sport Presentation System
in the Games, has operated efficiently and smoothly for over 100 days in its live environment. The Sports
Presentation System will "cultivate a lively atmosphere for fans and present our wonderful sports events
