Back in August, Extreme Networks achieved its goal of becoming a fully cloud-managed enterprise when, over a 24-hour period, it deployed the ExtremeCloud IQ end-to-end cloud management platform across 28 locations in 17 countries.
The project included onboarding hundreds of ExtremeWireless Wi-Fi 6 access points and fabric-enabled switches, giving IT immediate visibility of thousands of clients and endpoints.
Having a cloud-managed network in place will enable Extreme’s IT team to optimise the day-to-day connectivity experience for employees, while analytics from the platform’s unlimited data repository will give them the opportunity to improve processes across development, sales and operations teams.
Daniel Adam, Chief Information Officer at Extreme Networks, said: “We’ve planned to implement ExtremeCloud IQ to manage our globally distributed network since we released it last year. We proudly use the solutions we sell and with this deployment our employees, customers and partners will experience first-hand the value of unlimited data and the benefits of a centrally managed cloud networking platform and end-to-end cloud-managed network.”
Extreme Networks has been identified as the fastest-growing cloud-managed networking vendor in Omdia’s 2020 Cloud Managed Networking Report, increasing its market share from 6% to 10%. It has the second highest revenue share in the market and the second highest number of devices managed.
