Tue, 12th Mar 2024

Extreme Networks, a prominent force in the realm of cloud networking, has earned recognition as a Leader in the 2024 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Wired and Wireless LAN Infrastructure. This achievement marks the firm's sixth consecutive time earning this accolade. The announcement positions Extreme Networks among the top-tier names in its field, demonstrating both vision and execution.

The Gartner Magic Quadrant, a respected assessment of companies in the technology sector, distinguished Extreme Networks from a dozen participating companies for its innovative advances and comprehensive vision. This recognition is grounded in the development and launch of products like the firm's first Wi-Fi 7 access point, the ExtremeCloud Universal ZTNA network access solution, cloud-managed 4000 Series Universal Switches, and ExtremeCloud Edge: the industry's first networking cloud continuum.

An integral part of the assessment involved evaluating the company's ability to deliver improved business outcomes across all organisations. Ed Meyercord, President and CEO at Extreme, stated, "Extreme's solutions are unmatched in helping customers find new ways to deliver better business outcomes across their organisations... Extreme removes the friction associated with enterprise networking and is proud to be recognised as a Leader by Gartner for the sixth consecutive time."

Extreme Networks' innovative approach combines AI, networking, and security. Their offerings include the industry's only end-to-end Network Fabric, ExtremeCloud IQ cloud management platform with AIOps-powered digital twin capabilities. ExtremeCloud IQ can manage third-party devices, thereby reducing costs for incremental network upgrades. Their offerings also prioritise security across, engraining it in every aspect of the Extreme portfolio. For easy scalability, Extreme offers Universal Platforms, accompanied by the industry’s simplest licensing model where customers only pay for what they need and use.

In addition to being recognized as a Leader in this report, Extreme Networks has also received continuous recognition as a Gartner Peer Insights Customers Choice for Wired and Wireless LAN Infrastructure since 2019. Enthusiastic reviews by customers include commentary on the firm's unparalleled support and assistance, the seamless cloud management via the ExtremeCloud IQ platform, as well as satisfaction with the cooperative and knowledgeable sales and pre-sales teams.

This inspiring continuous recognition punctuates Extreme Network's commitment to relentless innovation, uncompromised direct support, simplified cloud management, and entrenched security as one of the Leaders in the realm of cloud networking.
