Extreme Networks helps customers transition to the new normal
Launches comprehensive program to provide information, insights, and cloud-driven solutions to help customers adapt and thrive in the new normal working environments
COVID-19 has compelled organisations to accelerate their digital transformation efforts. This has led to the rapid adoption of new cloud technologies to support remote working and online learning.
Extreme Networks, a cloud-driven networking company, has launched a #NewNormal initiative to help all of its customers adapt to the transition. The #NewNormal initiative is a comprehensive program that provides information and industry insights to help companies survive and thrive leveraging the firm’s ExtremeCloud IQ solution.
ExtremeCloud IQ is a machine learning and AI- driven cloud management solution, built on a 4th generation cloud platform. Integrated with the company’s end-to-end enterprise networking technology, it assists in collecting data to build, secure, and maintain agile and distributed work environments. For organisations bringing employees back to work and students back to school, ExtremeCloud IQ helps ensure safe mobility on campus with IoT and robotics connectivity and visibility, as well as support for occupancy management and contact tracing applications.
Norman Rice, chief operating officer, Extreme Networks, said, “As we grapple with more data, coming from more places, more connected devices, and more SaaS-based applications, the cloud is becoming fundamental to establishing a new normal. This means organisations need an even better cloud – one that delivers infinite 9s of uptime, dependable and uncorrupted data over an unlimited time span, and the industry’s best security. That comes with a 4th generation cloud and Extreme is the only company that has one with its ExtremeCloud IQ platform.”
ExtremeCloud IQ offers several advantages to customers such as facilitating agile work environments, IoT monitoring and robotics automation. Those firms who require to connect, secure and manage remote network sites or enable distance learning, can effortlessly deploy ExtremeCloud IQ. Among other benefits, the solution also offers analytics and tools to proactively monitor and optimise network health across the organisation, whether it be a fixed or temporary location, or over a wired or wireless network.
When it comes to IoT monitoring and robotics automation, those firms who need a high-level of visibility and environmental monitoring, Extreme offers secure wired and wireless connectivity and simple, secure device onboarding and management via ExtremeCloud IQ. The application provides complete visibility and management of connected devices that monitor health and safety, without requiring technical staff or staging services. It offers correlation of device location and gathered data, with unlimited data available in July. It also helps to manage remote operations for unmanned manufacturing facilities that are using robotics assistance to minimise staff exposure.
The solution also offers Contact Tracing Enablement feature. The same network that is already providing corporate communication is also continually monitoring, gathering, and recording client activity. With ExtremeWireless access points, managed by ExtremeCloud IQ, organisations have complete visibility into their distributed network traffic, providing specific location information and unlimited historical data, starting in July. Administrators can easily track where users connected, where they roamed within the facility, and what other devices were connected in those areas at the same time, and then feed that data to third-party applications that support contact tracing.
