Extreme Networks and "Think Mobile" as a strategy

FY Teng | Sept. 2, 2014
The networking company's VP for Asia Pacific and Japan Sales, Gary Newbold, on the past, present and future of connectivity and mobility.

In India, the Aga Khan Academy, a 100-acre campus with 45 buildings, recently deployed Extreme Networks' solutions to connect students and teachers throughout classrooms, dormitories, research labs and athletic facilities. This has resulted in a robust and secure network for the academy. The new network infrastructure enabled students to use their own devices to access network resources and the Internet from anywhere in the campus.

In Malaysia, Extreme Networks supported Prince of Wales Island International School in the deployment of a new network infrastructure. The school needed high-performance capacity for its streaming media, and access to online educational instructional resources for students and staff. Thanks to Extreme Networks' comprehensive solution, the school now offers top-notch educational resources and the best facilities in every area-from science to the performing arts.

We also recently supported Maynilad Water Services to successfully deploy a more robust networking foundation from which to support its expanding business operations. The private water concessionaire chose Extreme Networks to deploy wired and wireless solutions enterprise-wide, covering the head office, data center, and 15 branches and pumping stations.

In Australia and New Zealand, the introduction of the Digital Education Revolution (DER) in 2008, designed to bring about a 1:1 computer-to-student ratio for years 9 to 12, has driven schools, such as Christ Church Grammar School in Claremont, Western Australia to deploy nearly 2 000 iPads to the faculty and student body. The IT team realised that they needed a new wireless solution that could support the increased traffic from streaming video in classroom full of students and deployed a range of fast, high performance wireless access points, Ethernet switches and a management solution which interoperates with their existing MDM solution. This enabled the network to respond to fluctuating demand.

Academia Sinica, the pre-eminent educational institution of Taiwan, turned to Extreme Networks for high-performance computing needs. Its high-performance computer required a network capable of handling extreme demands. So the organisation sought a robust and reliable 10G network serving dedicated number of users but capable of continuously transferring huge volumes of data in. The Extreme Networks technology fulfilled Academia Sinica's HPC network needs for a flexible and economic solution capable of transferring large amounts of information swiftly and reliably.

Talk about Extreme Networks' place in the delivery of wireless technologies today and its plans for the next 1-3 years.
Our company is growing, particularly in Asia Pacific, and so are our client base and the range of industries we work with across the region.

The acquisition of Enterasys Networks is significant for Extreme Networks in that it brings together two companies with distinct strengths addressing the key areas of the network, from unified wired, wireless edge, and the enterprise core, to the data center and cloud.
