We are thrilled to announce that Extreme Networks recently received multiple awards at the Network Computing Awards ceremony in London, further cementing our place as a leader in the IT and networking industry.

Our team took home three award wins and three honorable mentions, which is a huge testament to the work we’re doing to provide innovative and seamless customer experiences globally.

Earning this award supports our strategy to broaden our enterprise capabilities with solutions that complement our product portfolio across our vertical markets.
