SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Extreme Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR) today announced that Enterasys Networks, now part of Extreme Networks, has been awarded a Readers' Choice Top 100 Product award for its IdentiFi Wireless solution. The winners, selected by District Administration magazine's editors from more than 1,800 submissions, were products that received the highest number of nominations and esteemed descriptions from K-12 leaders.
IdentiFi Wireless enables K-12 school districts to manage and control the massive influx of wireless devices resulting from BYOD and 1-on-1 initiatives, providing the highest quality Wi-Fi user experience in classroom and campus environments, including hyper-dense areas in auditoriums, libraries and cafeterias. Challenging requirements such as network discovery, file sharing, and printing for Apple, Google, and Microsoft environments are delivered with IdentiFi's unique containment approach. Through seamless integration with Mobile IAM, a comprehensive BYOD solution that provides total security, full IT control and predictable network experience for all users, Extreme Networks' customers can support the growing demand for BYOD in the classroom, while operating their individual networks securely.
"Being honored as a Readers' Choice Top 100 Product winner is another indication that the market recognizes our extensive work in providing the K-12 market with top-of-the-line education technology solutions," said Bob Nilsson, director of vertical solutions at Extreme Networks. "Not only has IdentiFi allowed our customers to securely manage BYOD networks within schools, but it also addresses the critical requirements in education, including manageability, scalability, visibility, security and application performance."
In recognizing the most innovative products, the annual District Administration Readers' Choice Top 100 Products awards inform superintendents and other senior school district leaders about products their colleagues around the country are using to help their districts excel.
"The fact that we had a record number of readers participating in this recognition program is a testament to the interest that K-12 leaders have in products for improving educational outcomes and operational efficiencies," said JD Solomon, District Administration's editorial director. "All of the honorees in our Top 100 program should be very proud of their achievement."
