France’s Leading Magazine Publisher Deploys Tomorrow’s Network Today

Prisma Media is France’s leading multi-channel publisher with a portfolio of 26 print titles and over 20 web sites covering key segments of consumer media. Prisma Media’s ambitious growth strategy has accelerated their digital media activity with no plans of slowing down. The developmental process is entirely digital, from initial concept to print run, so network bandwidth has a direct impact on productivity. After relocating their headquarters, Prisma Media wanted to redefine the corporate network architecture and upgrade their network with leading-edge technology capable of adapting to meet future demands.

Before selecting a new network architecture, Prisma Media identified a number of requirements including high level performance and security, a flexible, easy-to-use network management platform, and a scalable solution capable of handing high-performance network deployments in the future. After interviewing a number of players in the market of network vendors, Prisma Media chose Extreme Networks.

  • Security, redundancy and high performance for a network linking corporate HQ two remote datacenters
  • Deployment integrated with business continuity planning
