Align was engaged by the NBA to perform a consolidation of their IT infrastructure, as well as help them expand to an additional floor at their corporate headquarters.

The initial assessment discovered that the vast majority of the NBA's network infrastructure was outdated and could not support future media requirements. Our subject matter experts, business analysts and senior technical engineers immediately began to develop a complete solution.

Our Solution

In partnership with Cisco, Align created an innovative network infrastructure for the NBA that now allows fans to get their game fix over multiple, next-generation platforms, including:

  • Social media
  • Televised mobile services
  • On-demand and real-time statistics
  • Video streaming

Our solution allowed each of the NBA’s business units to function separately, while maintaining their need for a centralized infrastructure. Align and Cisco worked together using the latest technologies to create a versatile network that is one of the fastest, resilient and redundant networks to date. 

The Result

Amazingly, the NBA is now able to stream information at a speed of 2.4 terabytes per second with 75 petabytes of capacity.
