City of Seguin Upgrades Network Enterprise to Meet the Demands of Rapid Growth

The City of Seguin, sometimes referred to as a “gateway to South Texas,” evinces an old-world charm, from its classic downtown Main Street to its own icon of roadside Americana: a 1,000-pound plaster cast of the world’s largest pecan. Thanks to an abundance of limestone construction, Seguin once had the largest concentration of concrete buildings in the United States. Today, the emerging city of 30,000 residents (including approximately 450 city employees) still cherishes its hometown origins while boasting the largest manufacturing sector per capita in Texas.


  • Replace flat, outdated network with a robust, scalable, enterprise-level solution
  • Connect all three data centers
  • Upgrade perimeter security
"When I applied for this opportunity two years ago, I told the City Manager we’d put Seguin IT on the map. A lot of productivity is coming out of this incredibly talented and enthusiastic group, and Extreme Networks is the technology foundation for everything that’s being accomplished. I don’t know if there’s anything on our radar that our staff and network can’t handle. When you marry strong tech with a can-do country IT approach it really is something special."

Director of IT, City of Seguin
