The Olympics occur every four years. However, because the Summer Olympics and Winter Olympics are staggered, there is actually an Olympics every 2 years. Since NBC TV has the contract to televise the Olympics here in the United States for the foreseeable future, that means that every 2 years they need to implement a resilient, robust, high-availability communications network in a new location. They need to deploy the network quickly, ramp it up to functionality, then tear it all down a month or two later and pack it away in storage until the next Olympics. NBC Olympics has chosen Avaya as their unified communication solution. Going with a UC solution rather than traditional communications provides them with a number of benefits in terms of being able to communicate more efficiently across voice, email, instant messaging seamlessly and help the NBC Olympics team to stay in touch.
