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.
