Extreme Powers Superior Wi-Fi and Provides Actionable Insights to Simplify Venue Management and Improve Fan Experience

Sports & Public Venues

Extreme Networks delivers safe, quality, connected in-venue experiences while supporting the critical demands and future needs of sports brands and their venues.

We are extremely grateful for, and proud of our partnership with Verizon and Extreme Networks. This partnership has allowed us to provide a world-class connected experience for our spectators in our stadium that feels like home

Chip Suttles
Vice President of Technology, Seattle Seahawks

Reliable Wi-Fi is essential in order to get the most out of our investment in instant replay cameras, mobile ticketing and our mobile app. Raymond James Stadium was one of the first NFL venues to provide Wi-Fi for fans and over the last few years, the use of our networks has increased exponentially. Extreme Networks helped us elevate our stadium to the next level and truly deliver a championship caliber experience to our fans.

Brian Ford
COO, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

For us, adopting Wi-Fi 6 is a business imperative, because if our network can't provide a highly reliable, seamless experience throughout the game, our fans will stay home

Bob Flynn
Vice President of Facilities and Game Day Operations, Tennessee Titans

In-stadium, high density Wi-Fi connectivity that provides any guest unrestricted mobile access with a rich content experience was always the next frontier for the NFL. It’s also extremely helpful for us to have insight into how people are using the Wi-Fi at Gillette Stadium beyond the obvious platforms. Having that type of knowledge opens up opportunities.

Fred Kirsch
VP of Content, New England Patriots and Kraft Sports Productions

A great in-stadium experience is reliant on seamless connectivity – which Extreme Networks has made possible for our fans. We know we can rely on Extreme’s network to deliver not only at the stadium, but throughout our business operations at our facility.

Tom Murphy
Vice President Information Technology, New York Jets

At the time we chose Extreme Networks, they were the only manufacturer to have a purpose-built, in-stadium solution that was weatherproof for outdoor stadiums. With the past 5 years, our current relationship, and the purpose-built solution, it was a no brainer to go with Extreme.

Director of Information and Technology, Green Bay Packers
