New Zealand Hotel Casino Implements Brocade Solution

New Brocade Network Delivers High-Performance, Flexible, And Cost-Effective Infrastructure

The Reef Hotel Casino, Queensland has implemented a new network infrastructure from Brocade, based on Brocade Hyperedge Architecture, which enables a network to scale to meet demand and incorporate new technologies as they emerge.

Brocade and its partner, Integrated Solutions, worked with The Reef Hotel Casino IT team on a network design that eliminates single points of failure, using the Brocade ICX family of stackable campus switches running HyperEdge Architecture.

The phased implementation of Brocade ICX switches includes The Reef Hotel Casino hotel operations, back-office administration for management, finance, marketing, human resources, and payroll, as well as its electronic gaming facilities. Category 5 copper cabling throughout the complex has been replaced with fiber-optic infrastructure; enabling long-distance horizontal switch stack interconnects of up to 40 Gigabits per second.

“We’re currently undertaking an extensive program to invest in new network infrastructure that will provide a solid operational foundation for the future,” said Mark Buck, information technology manager, The Reef Hotel Casino. “The Brocade ICX switches and high-grade support we’re receiving from Integrated Solutions have enabled us to develop a more resilient network, with much more bandwidth and easier network admin.”

“Brocade ICX switches are designed to deliver continuous availability, with hitless failover within a stack,” said Gary Denman, Senior Director, Australia and New Zealand for Brocade. “For The Reef Hotel Casino that translates into around-the-clock network uptime so administration support and the customer experience will never be disrupted. Moreover, the Brocade stackable solution provides great investment protection and supports a high level of management automation, with the resort’s entire network controlled through a single browser window.”
