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 to all of our valued customers. There has never been a better time to be partnered with Extreme. We continue to invest in more ways to win together.

As the industry moves rapidly towards cloud-managed networking, we are now well positioned to meet your needs, as well as the needs of your customers. Our plan is to invest beyond the wireless LAN current cloud management capabilities by adding our wired switching portfolio, new software, and applications to our new cloud platform. We remain committed to leading through the channel and will integrate our could management solution set into our Extreme Partner Network. 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.

I want to thank you for your support as we continue to grow and affirm that there has never been a better time to partner with Extreme!
