From June 20 to 26, the organizers assigned monitoring and maintenance of the network for different stands of the Paris Air Show (which beat the record number of entries this year) to Cristal - the business association of EPITA. Cristal made available two teams of six students from third and fourth years of EPITA and 6 students of Epitech. According to Yannick Peraste, president of Cristal "this is the first maintenance of this magnitude for Cristal. The network of this Air Show covers about 200 exhibition booths."
For students, this was an interesting operation in more than one way: it asked them for a strong team organization and allowed them to practice a certain amount of knowledge acquired at EPITA on aspects of "networks". "It was a concrete project of a definite scale and with some substantial issues. " said Yannick.
The intervention also enabled the association to expand its contact list. "The client was totally satisfied with our service and pleasantly surprised at the good level and autonomy of the whole team," said the president of the association. If maintenance operations account for only about 10% interventions of Cristal, this successful experience made the association gain a valuable reference on the subject.
