Extreme Networks said educational institutions around the world are reaping benefits of its software-driven networking solutions.
“Students, faculty, and staff expect fast access to the Internet for a variety of applications and our goal is to make their experience as seamless as possible,” said Dave Smith, Assistant Director of IT for Technical Services, University of Mount Union.
“With Extreme’s Purview solution, we are able to access reports about traffic, users and applications, which, in turn, empower us with the knowledge we need to secure and optimize the network and troubleshoot more efficiently.”
Extreme’s networking solutions help to meet the growing mobile demands of their students, faculty and staff.
The University of Mount Union partnered with Extreme to increase network bandwidth by double to handle the growing number of users and devices on the network.
Further, Extreme said it will showcase interactive demos at EDUCAUSE 2015, starting October 27th in Indianapolis.
In July, Extreme Networks said Hardin County School District in Kentucky will manage its network, gain insight into users’ applications and network behaviour and provide easy network access to any mobile device for its 16,000 users leveraging Extreme’s infrastructure and analytics technology.
In addition, the Stonington Public School District has selected Extreme’s enterprise wireless network to roll out BYOD and to deploy a virtual desktop infrastructure and manage the entire infrastructure from a single screen.
