Make The Right Move with Extreme: A Six-Time Consecutive Leader in the Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Enterprise Wired and Wireless LAN Infrastructure


In chess, the opening move sets the tone for the match, influencing game strategy and the path to success. Similarly, in technology, your network serves as your first move – the foundation upon which all subsequent technologies are built. It shapes your strategy, directs your operations, and ultimately defines your organization's journey to success so you need a vendor that can help you make winning moves.

Each year, Gartner, a company that delivers objective insight to organizations, evaluates vendors in the networking space across the completeness of their vision and their ability to execute. Extreme has once again secured a spot in the Leaders Quadrant of the 2024 Gartner® Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Wired and Wireless LAN for the sixth consecutive time.
