Extreme Readers' Choice award from THE Journal

As schools increasingly incorporate technology into the classroom to improve educational outcomes, fast and reliable Wi-Fi has become a necessity to provide a seamless learning experience. Innovations in online testing, AR/VR, 1-1 computing, and BYOD, all require a robust and secure network infrastructure. Extreme Networks has built a solid reputation by working with higher education institutions and K-12 school districts to provide the best possible networks for education, that accommodate the increase in devices, while keeping security and visibility a top priority.

As a result of our commitment to delivering end-to-end wired and wireless solutions that support education technology, Extreme was recognized with two THE Journal’s 2017 Readers’ Choice Awards, winning for “Favorite Wireless Access Point” and “Favorite Network or Wi-Fi Management, Analysis and Monitoring Tool.” The winners of the third-annual Readers’ Choice Awards were selected by more than 1,450 educators and readers of THE Journal, who voted for their favorite technology and programs across various categories – from Best Robotics Curriculum to Favorite Anti-Virus Tool.

Extreme’s Wi-Fi access points and ExtremeManagement™ platform give schools a cost-effective solution that’s easy-to-manage and provides reliable connectivity. McMinn Country School System and Le Jardin Academy recently deployed these solutions to support and manage the influx of student devices while delivering fast and reliable connectivity during critical learning sessions. With ExtremeManagement, Le Jardin has been able to manage and control which devices connect to their wireless network, giving access to appropriate resources and blocking security risks depending on the user, device type, location, and time of day. 

We’re honored to be recognized by fellow educators for our solutions. These awards are a testament to our dedication in helping schools reach their technology goals and we look forward to continuing to assist schools improve their networks.
