High-Speed Casino Floors made available by utilizing Perle Ethernet Extenders
NASHVILLE, TN—October 24th , 2017 — The casino industry is a major economic contributor that is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.16% between 2017-20211. And, with easing regulations that encourage growth in the industry, the introduction of Bally Systems Super Slotline™ could not come at a better time.
To meet growing demand, a casino IT infrastructure needs to be capable of superfast game level communication that is ready to add new games, content and technologies as they come to market.
The challenge is that most gaming floors still use serial wiring which, although reliable, operates at a fraction of the speed of Ethernet. When casinos seek an upgrade, they are hindered by high implementation costs and operational downtime. These are huge barriers to overcome.
Bally Systems’ Super Slotline™ has stepped up with an innovative solution. Using existing cabling, Super Slotline™ converts traditional serial floors to high-speed floors that emulate the speed and compatibility of Ethernet. With a low implementation cost, 80MB per second Ethernet capable connection speeds, no remodelling and zero disruptions to casino operations, Super Slotline addresses all concerns of the IT Administrator.
A critical component of this system is the implementation of Perle Ethernet Extenders that transparently extend 10/100/1000 Ethernet connections across the existing serial cables.
Bally Systems Engineers are always pioneering creative solutions that enable casinos to continually improve upon the experiences offered in their premises, comments John Feeney, COO at Perle Systems.
Perle and Bally have worked on many projects together and we are thrilled to be a part of their latest innovation.
