For 2,500 years, from the Greek agoras to today’s cities, schools, hospitals and offices, our society revolved around centers. But the world is changing, and so is networking. Welcome to the age of Infinite Enterprise!
As we slowly move towards a ‘new normal’, we are living our lives quite differently. We shop differently, we attend school differently, we receive healthcare differently, and we work differently. Employees no longer need to punch the clock at the office for the entire five-day work week. Instead, they may prefer to work remotely, either part-time or full-time.
It means that the organization no longer just resides in a building – instead, it must go wherever its people choose to operate. It also means that the connectivity must happen everywhere and for everyone, in an infinitely distributed environment. And that, my friends, is the shortest definition of an Infinite Enterprise.
But what does it all actually mean for the way we design, build and use our networks? Let’s take a quick look at the three core tenets of the Infinite Enterprise:
- Consumer-centric. Technology should revolve around the customer‘s needs as opposed to their lives being defined by hi-tech. Extreme’s unique data and AI/ML capabilities deliver personalized and consistent experiences anytime, anywhere, on any device. By harnessing data to drive actionable insights, we shape the experience for everyone who consumes network services – employees, teachers, students, patients, and so on.
- Infinitely distributed. Today’s workplace needs to come to the employee. Extreme’s solutions radically simplify remote deployments and operations of your wired and wireless infrastructure. For organizations looking to extend connectivity to remote locations, Extreme offers simple, cloud-managed, plug and play solutions that can be deployed over a broad range of connectivity options including broadband, cellular and private WAN
- At scale. To deliver on the promise of the Infinite Enterprise, Extreme Networks and other companies must deliver at scale. And the technology that you need to begin this journey is the cloud. Scaling up and out from a single device to millions, Extreme delivers flexible public cloud, private cloud, and on-premises solutions that cater to diverse business connectivity and commercial needs. Extreme cloud-based applications and tools simplify network management at scale, allowing customers to migrate to cloud their way, at their pace.
Your customers’ needs are infinite – your business can be too!
