Lead goesExtreme Networks today introduced two new solutions designed to help highly distributed enterprise organizations create improved network connectivity, security and application performance. The new AP5020 access point and 4000 Series switches enable Zero Trust networking foundation and leverage AI to easily support more distributed users, applications and devices. here
With cloud-managed Wi-Fi 7 from Extreme, we can continue delivering consistent, secure wireless across our campus while adding new educational resources for students like AR/VR, remote guest lecturers and live video streaming without buffering, lag or an impact on day-to-day operations. The security, bandwidth and lower latency aspects of Wi-Fi 7 give us the peace of mind that when we add new devices to the network, they won’t compromise performance or security. When paired with Extreme AIOps, we get the extra boost of rapid deployment, simple management and reduced IT tasks. The simplicity and flexibility allow us to focus on the experience and not worry about the deployment.
Scott Day, Director of Network Services, Baylor University
The combination of return-to-office and IoT initiatives is creating demand for robust, reliable and performant Wi-Fi environments. Fortunately, Wi-Fi 7 delivers the requisite speed, density, reliability and low latency to improve the performance of applications and devices, while also enhancing network security. Extreme’s new Wi-Fi 7 access point is another extension of its cloud-led wireless portfolio and will have a significant impact on throughput, particularly in high-density environments. Leveraging Extreme’s cloud-based management will drive greater operational efficiency, and the improved connectivity, reliability and responsiveness of the Wi-Fi 7 access point will ensure better end-user experiences, as well as boost overall productivity across the organization.

Extreme's Universal portfolio is centered on simplicity and flexibility, and the new 4000 series extends that value for both existing customers and new market opportunities. When paired with ExtremeCloud Universal ZTNA, these new cloud-managed switches provide an additional layer of network security and peace of mind when it comes to managing security in a complex, distributed environment. Removing friction and complexity for customers is a key pillar of Extreme’s One Network, One Cloud strategy.
Alan Weckel, Co-Founder and Technology Analyst, 650 Group
Extreme takes the power of cloud and AI to make secure connectivity simple. Enterprises are more distributed than ever and need the flexibility to add users, devices and applications across their environment without sacrificing time, security or performance. Our new solutions further expand the flexibility of our portfolio and work in concert with our Universal ZTNA solution for a frictionless user experience applied to hybrid work. AIOps in ExtremeCloud IQ leverages explainable ML to further save IT time and money. In the Infinite Enterprise, we’re making it easier than ever to manage, scale and secure the network to drive success.
