Two Major Acquisitions by Extreme Networks
The last eight months have been a busy time for Extreme, and they are not set to slow down. In March they announced two major acquisitions:
- Avaya Networking: An asset purchase agreement to acquire Avaya’s networking business.
- Brocade Data Center Networking: An asset purchase agreement to acquire Brocade Communications Systems, Inc.’s data center switching, routing, and analytics business from Broadcom following Broadcom’s acquisition of Brocade
With one thing in mind, they are pursuing both of these acquisitions to solidify their vision to become the only true pure play, end-to-end wired and wireless enterprise networking company in the world. What that means for customers and partners of Extreme, Avaya and Brocade is that they will benefit from their hyper focus on enterprise networking, combined with a dedication to delivering industry leading services and support, and high quality management, control, automation and analytics software platforms, which enable users to simplify and secure complex networking environments.
