This collaboration will ensure a solid network infrastructure at the largest event worldwide

Fondazione Milano Cortina 2026 and Juniper Networks Italy have signed a partnership agreement in view of the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games Milano Cortina 2026. Purpose of this collaboration is to optimise the network systems, and to ensure the protection of data and information that will travel virtually during this major sporting event in 2026. The entry of Juniper, which is making its Olympic and Paralympic début as a partner of Milano Cortina 2026, represents a significant step for the project and for the Organising Committee, as the company's presence within the large organisational machine is fundamental to correctly manage real-time data and the high number of network access requests.


A partnership for the Olympic Games

Juniper's high-performance platform will ensure secure networking during the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games Milano Cortina 2026. Users will be able to access online digital resources effortlessly and seamlessly, through wired, wireless, routing and security solutions. Juniper's platform is able to specifically exploit data movement, ensure the correct response in real time and provide a smooth network, so that connections are reliable, measurable and secure for every device, user, application and resource. This bond was forged in the name of technological excellence, and not only that: at the heart of the partnership, there are shared values of inclusion and attention to the workforce.


United by common values

Juniper's work focuses on people, respect for equality and the promotion of diversity. The same principles that the Organising Committee has embraced and that have made Milano Cortina 2026 a People Centric Olympic Games model. "Signing this agreement adds further prestige to the path towards the construction of the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games Milano Cortina 2026. We welcome on board a company whose excellence is recognised internationally. The team of our partners is expanding and becoming more and more heterogeneous: a strong point for the Organising Committee of this great sporting event that will leave Italy with an important legacy. The words of Fondazione Milano Cortina 2026 CEO, Andrea Varnier. "The partnership with Fondazione Milano Cortina 2026 will showcase Juniper's services and high-performance networking".


Juniper is the official provider of secure IP networking

"As the official secure IP network provider of the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games Milano Cortina 2026, Juniper will support the management of this complex major event at multiple venues. It will also adopt a circular economy approach, by collecting and recycling all equipment once the event is over. Juniper's goal is to prevent any equipment from being wasted or ending up in landfills, and instead promote a more environmentally friendly business model. The products will be returned to the production process as used items through the partnership with Juniper". Comment by Mario Manfredoni, Senior Sales Director, Southern Europe, Juniper Networks.
