SAN JOSE, Calif., July 07, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Extreme Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR), a leader in cloud networking, today announced it has been named as a five-time consecutive Gartner Peer Insights Customers' Choice for Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure.

Gartner defines the Wired and Wireless Access LAN Infrastructure market as "that of vendors supplying wired and wireless networking hardware, and the related network software." The Gartner Peer Insights Customers' Choice is based on feedback and ratings from end-user professionals who have experience purchasing, implementing and/or using the product or service.

Extreme is focused on developing innovative solutions that create new ways for customers to drive better outcomes. Customers cited several key reasons for choosing Extreme, including flexibility and ease of new deployments, excellent IT support services and strong connectivity in demanding environments.

Here is a sampling of what Extreme Networks customers are saying:

"Extreme's wireless network products are deployed flexibly and can meet the needs of [projects of] various scale without having to invest a large cost in the early stage, which greatly [reduces] operating costs [for] the enterprise. Moreover, the performance of wireless products is faster, the products are more energy-saving and the cost performance is improved a lot. Very satisfied." – ICT Service Manager, Industrial/Manufacturing

"I have nothing but great things to say about [our] ongoing relationship with Extreme Networks. From the time they acquired Avaya and started to integrate their products into their own new line, we have been supported and helped through the transition to the new technologies while supporting the old. Our students are demanding and use the network extensively in their academic activities, constantly needing more resources. Extreme has a wonderful lineup that lets us deliver great, secure services to our users."CIO/CTO, Higher Ed

The professional services have been very effective with respect to future-proofing network designs and infrastructure upgrades. I especially like having dedicated professional services engineers that are on your account and fully aware of the infrastructure. This makes for more productive and smoother engagements."IT Infrastructure Manager, Transportation

"Extreme Networks shows continuous development of new products and functionality. This is helping us in maintaining our quality in delivering predictable services. We are all enjoying our work. We are also very proud to show it to our friends in the field. Universal hardware is the best solution for customers who want to keep the freedom and flexibility to choose which architecture will fit best, now and in the future." Network Architect, State and Local Government
