In the landscape of the public sector, governments face a myriad of evolving challenges that demand innovative solutions. From navigating complexity to meeting the growing expectations of citizens, the path to achieving desired outcomes can be difficult.

How Extreme Customers Are Making an Impact

The City of Seguin successfully implemented a fire station alerting solution running on their network that has already yielded remarkable results, lowering emergency response times and enabling their public safety departments to better protect citizens. Through the use of a tiered alerting system, firefighters experience reduced stress during crucial moments, resulting in improved overall quality of life and increased employee retention within the department. The groundwork for this achievement was laid by a significant network transformation project undertaken by the city a few years prior, setting the stage for their current success.


The City of Memphis trusts Extreme because of our commitment to simplicity. In a world where technology continues to evolve and complexity increases, we are constantly finding ways to simplify networking for our customers. We aim to make IT jobs easier rather than complex and tedious.


Loudoun County chooses to partner with Extreme because of our customer support. We are committed to standing by our customers every step of the way, ensuring their complete satisfaction with our solutions and the smooth operation of their network. Our teams work tirelessly to address issues promptly and provide ongoing assistance, helping to keep things running seamlessly as they should.


We are incredibly grateful for the trust and confidence our customers from the public sector have placed in us. Their feedback and experiences are a testament to our dedication to our network solutions, and we wouldn't be a Customers' Choice without them!
