My favorite part of Extreme Connect 2018 was the technical breakout sessions. I was able to learn a lot from those sessions, new roadmaps that are coming out, new emerging technologies, looking at product lines that we aren’t using yet at Sauder’s, that I might be able to take back to the business and apply.

At Extreme Connect 2018, I had the chance to bring a couple of my team members. I thought it was well organized and run. It’s was very informational. My team got some great certification training in as well. It was a great showcase of where Extreme is with the product roadmap and what the products of the future will look like.
