More than 4,000 Special Olympics athletes and coaches, along with tens of thousands family members, volunteers and spectators from across the United States are arriving for the 2018 Special Olympics USA Games this Sunday at the University of Washington’s Husky Stadium. Meanwhile, behind-the-scenes, local technology leader Net-Tech is busy preparing all 38 athletic venues and facilities with the technology needed to ensure the event is successful.

“This event is an opportunity to put Special Olympics on the forefront of conversation in Seattle and the world,” said Matt Bratlien, Net-Tech’s Managing Partner. “They are trying to promote the deals of acceptance and inclusion which is a core value of Net-Tech and its employees.

“We have been a supporter of Special Olympics for over 15 years, and this year we made the commitment to have our entire company participate.”

Net-Tech is providing 38 firewalls, 40 access points and 500 switch ports along with a single network for all volunteers and staffers and public wi-fi access.
