Extreme Networks Completes Acquisition of Avaya Networking



I am excited to share that we have completed our acquisition of Avaya’s networking business. By adding Avaya, we are integrating proven technology, outstanding talent and a loyal customer base all into the Extreme family.

Our acquisition of Avaya’s pioneering solutions including the fabric technology for highly secure, simplified access, management and control of campus data center, core and edge environments will open new opportunities for you as an Extreme partner. The addition of stealth networking technology and a new family of high performance modular switches also expands our capabilities to keep customers secure and supported as IoT, mobility and cloud computing continue to converge on the network. We will share additional details in the days and weeks to come on how to access these opportunities.

We pride ourselves on being a partner-centric company and are committed to enabling you with the solutions and services you need to drive profitability for your business. An integral part of that service is our Extreme Partner Network (EPN) program. In October at our annual Partner Conference, we will launch a unified partner program that encompasses new and existing Extreme partners. We’ll be in touch with details on this event shortly.

It has been an exciting year for Extreme! When you add our significant investment in research and development with our acquisition of Zebra’s WLAN business, Avaya Networking and our pending purchase of Brocade’s data center business, we can now offer our customers a significantly enhanced, state-of-the-art, newly-refreshed portfolio of networking solutions.

I invite you to learn more about how you and your customers will benefit from Avaya Networking joining the Extreme family. Please click below to access the documents below and to contact us anytime.
