Extreme Networks CEO touts open SDN strategy, robust wireless as key assets in changing net market

John Gallant | Feb. 25, 2015
Extreme CEO Charles Berger discusses Enterasys acquisition and integration, increasing demand for mobility solutions.

Are there other announcements or other key things going on at the company that you want people to know?

We were proud to have three of the four teams in the NFL Conference Championships and two of our teams won and the one who did worse was not our customer, so we're sure there's a high correlation there.

I'm assuming that's the Colts. They're not a customer yet?

Not yet. We're working on them.

Now you have a perfect opening when you talk to them about their performance there.

It always gets a chuckle from the audience. The important thing about the NFL, just to maybe carry that one step further, that it and other venues are going to be important customers for us but far more important is the proof point that they offer for the broader enterprise market and the learnings we get from that marketplace of how to perform in what's frankly the toughest of environments. That allows us to do even better and more economically in the less challenging environments.
