Linksys has signed a three-year contract as the official and exclusive networking partner for PAX Australia.
“We are very excited to be teaming with PAX Aus as the networking sponsor of the PC & Console Free-play areas. As the defining gaming event on the local calendar, PAX will provide a great forum through which we can engage directly with Australia’s most passionate gamers,” said Greg Morrison, Country Manager of Linksys ANZ.
“It also provides us a wonderful technical challenge considering the scale and scope of the event, but with our latest SMB networking equipment, we believe we will create an amazing experience for the attendee’s”.
As part of the partnership, Linksys will be providing a range of networking equipment including switches to ensure attendees experience fast and reliable networking functionality in the Console & PC free-play areas.
“The PC and Console Free-play areas are integral to PAX Aus. Having Linksys on board for the next three years to manage the networking demands of those two large-scale, complex setups means our attendees can focus on awarding bragging rights in community tournaments and no one can blame poor performance on lag. As it should be,” said Luke Lancaster, Content Manager, PAX Aus.
PAX Australia 2017 will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Center from the 27th to 29th of October.
