Atlanta Braves sign Comcast to build enterprise network

Comcast Business has committed to building a new multi-site enterprise network for the Atlanta Braves that will connect the Braves´ front offices at SunTrust Park with minor league team operations in Georgia and Virginia, the company said.

The agreement calls for Comcast Business to provide two 100 Gigabit-per-second (Gbps) Ethernet lines into the Braves´ new ballpark, which is slated for completion in 2017. This Ethernet Network Service solution will connect the Braves´ new front offices at SunTrust Park to the club´s minor league teams in Rome and Gwinnett County, Georgia and in Danville, Virginia, as well as a sales location at CNN Center in downtown Atlanta. Comcast Business will also support phone services at the Braves´ SunTrust Park offices.

Ethernet Private Line service will enable the Braves to share business-critical data over a dedicated, private circuit infrastructure. This five-site Ethernet Network Service solution will support speeds between 20 Mbps and 200 Mbps to facilitate communications between the front office and the minor league teams.

Comcast will provide video, voice and high-speed Internet connectivity throughout the 60-acre project, which includes the new ballpark, retail shops, restaurants, an office tower, hotel, an entertainment venue and residential units.
