SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Extreme Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: EXTR) today announced that Eufaula City Schools, in Eufaula, Alabama, selected Extreme's software-driven wireless networking solutions to support BYOD initiatives and cutting-edge sports technology within its state-of-the-art athletic facility. Extreme's technology will allow Eufaula to extend networking connectivity across its high school campus to deliver reliable, high-density Wi-Fi within the classroom, and support Eufaula's academic, enrichment and athletic programs.
In 2016, the district funded a $3.2 million project to construct a new indoor athletic practice facility in support of Eufaula's athletic program. In order for this facility to serve as a technology hub, equipped with the latest fitness monitoring devices, Eufaula needed a robust wireless network that could easily manage high-volume network activity, at all times.
After working with Extreme's partner, Synergetics DCS, Inc., to deploy ExtremeWireless™ access points, ExtremeManagement™ and ExtremeAnalytics™ across campus, Eufaula's small IT staff can now manage the entire network and provide efficient, uninterrupted wireless connectivity to all users within the facility and throughout each high school classroom.
- The athletic facility and high school classrooms have been transformed into a BYOD zone. Students that do not have Internet access at home are able to stream educational videos or download practice videos to their own devices or Eufaula-issued devices.
- By using Extreme's NFL grade analytics offering, Eufaula is now able to track an athlete's progress by monitoring iPads hooked up to weights and gym equipment and water fountains that measure an athlete's fluid intake.
- With ExtremeWireless deployed in four classrooms, teachers can easily prepare lesson plans, host online tutoring sessions and stream content, all without fear of a network crash in the middle of a lecture.
- In the future, the district plans to deploy wireless infrastructure that supports more mobile applications and online learning environments across its other schools.
To learn more about the benefits of Extreme's wireless networking solutions and how the company supports its education customers, like Eufaula, to deploy new technology, visit the team at the following events:
- Brainstorm K20 in Wisconsin Dells, WI from February 26-28 in booth no. 305.
- KYSTE in Louisville, KY from March 8-10 in booth no. 403.
