The State University of New York at Canton (SUNY Canton) is Northern New York’s two and four-year college for technology, health, management and public service. SUNY Canton is known for emphasizing hands-on, engaging educational experiences designed to fully prepare students for their future careers. With a major equipment refresh on the horizon, SUNY Canton had the need to upgrade to the latest networking technology, including Wave 2 APs for greater bandwidth. Operating expenses associated with the network infrastructure were getting very high and the SUNY Canton IT organization wanted to get ahead of their equipment’s end-of-life. After evaluating numerous networking vendors, SUNY Canton ultimately chose a solution from Extreme Networks based on their success and support offerings.
