Extreme Networks is ready to finish 2020 with a bang having been named as the “overall winner” of the Networking category in CRN’s prestigious “2020 Products of the Year” Awards.

Businesses and schools around the world are looking for new ways to streamline every aspect of the network, from deployment to maintenance – to be able to focus on what’s really important to them instead of dealing with menial and time consuming operational tasks.

These needs can be met by using Extreme’s fourth generation Cloud Services architecture, capable of supporting millions of infrastructure devices and hundreds of millions of clients per Regional Data Center. Imagine an all-in-one platform for wired and wireless management, business insights, location tracking, wireless security, seamless IoT onboarding and guest access, and guest access through a single user interface.

CRN editors looked at the best new products and major updates of 2020, and then turned to solution providers to choose the winners based on technology, revenue and profit opportunities, and customer demand. ExtremeCloud IQ was selected as the winner in the ‘Networking’ category for its enhanced insight, visibility and control, as well as new automation capabilities for IT administrators.

Here’s what CRN had to say:

“The enterprise network management app provides full visibility into every user and device in a network, as well as unified policy management across devices and sites. ExtremeCloud IQ also uses machine learning and AI to deliver actionable insight derived from the 3 PB of data that’s ingested by the company’s cloud instances each day. In addition, the new Co-Pilot feature provides automation capabilities that dramatically reduces the amount of context-gathering needed by IT administrators for handling support calls.”

ExtremeCloud IQ was selected over solutions from Cisco, CommScope, HPE, and Juniper Networks. If you want to learn more about ExtremeCloud IQ, please click below:
