The City of Troy, Alabama, offers visitors the charm of a small town along with a stimulating urban environment. In order to provide fast and reliable network connectivity for 70 locations, including their nationally-recognized parks and recreation programs and facilities, innovative and creative Colley Senior Complex, and outstanding Troy Public Library, the City of Troy decided to standardize their switching platform with Extreme Networks. Covering 100,000 square feet and providing network connectivity for 70 locations, over 400 employees and 10,000+ wired and wireless devices – everything from BYOD, public computers, IP cameras, IP phone system, utility meters, security systems, fire alarms, wireless APs and more – it comes as no surprise that network reliability was a top concern.


  • Reliable, fast, and secure switching
  • Mobility
  • Redundancy
"The raw power and reliability of the Extreme switches drove the decision to standardize the city with Extreme. It's perfect for our switching needs. I'v never had an Extreme Switch fail because of a hardware issue. Extreme is simply the best compared to the rest."
Jason Bell
Network Administrator, City of Troy
