A Letter to Extreme Customers on Aerohive Acquisition

Hello all,

We’re thrilled to announce that we closed our acquisition of Aerohive! Extreme is now a leader in cloud-managed networking with the highest performance next-gen cloud platform in the industry! We are excited about the new capabilities we will be able to offer all of our valued customers.

As the industry moves rapidly towards cloud-managed networking, we are now well positioned to meet your needs. Our plan is to invest beyond wireless LAN by adding our wired switching portfolio, new software and applications to our new cloud management platform. This is consistent with our goal of delivering the highest quality networking needs from the access edge through the cloud data center backed up with 100% insourced technical support.

Thank you for your support as we continue to grow. Wherever your networking journey takes you, we want to be the technology partner you trust to get you there.
