  • Difficulty connecting student and faculty devices across multiple schools
  • Significant increased number of devices connecting to network
  • Improve uptime to 100%
  • Enhanced bandwidth to support critical, bandwidth-hungry learning applications
"Support is 100% a selling point. If you're working with [other vendors] you might not get called back for days. You might not get a replacement for a broken device for days, whereas with Extreme, broken switch was replaced a day later."
Tyler Savage
Network Manager, Southington Public Schools
