Home Sponsored Announcements Extreme Networks Named a Leader for the First Time in 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure

Extreme Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR) announced today that it is now positioned as a Leader by Gartner, Inc. in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure,  July 11, 2018.

According to Gartner, "A vendor in the Leaders quadrant will have demonstrated an ability to fulfill a broad variety of customer requirements through the breadth of its access layer product family. Leaders will have the ability to shape the market and provide complete and differentiating access layer applications, as well as global service and support. Leaders should have demonstrated the ability to maintain strong relationships with their channels and customers, and have no obvious gaps in their portfolios."

Prior to 2018, Extreme Networks appeared as a Visionary in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure for three consecutive years.

Since the last report published in 2017, Extreme completed its acquisition of Brocade Communications Systems, Inc.'s data centre networking business, its third in a series of acquisitions since October 2016. Extreme also launched its Smart OmniEdge solution comprised of a secure, unified wired/wireless infrastructure and AI-driven management capabilities, accessible through a single pane of glass.

Executive Perspectives

Ed Meyercord, President and CEO, Extreme Networks, Inc.

"We feel that Extreme Networks' entrance into the Leaders quadrant as a vendor offering wired and wireless LAN access infrastructure is a true milestone. To us, it is an honor to be recognised by a source like Gartner in its Magic Quadrant. It is our fifth consecutive year appearing in this reference guide for our customers and partners."
