The Converged Communications Group (CCG) of Van Ausdall & Farrar is officially an Authorized Channel Partner for Extreme Networks.

Extreme Networks is a publicly traded company (NASDAQ: EXTR) headquartered in San Jose, California and founded in 1996. Extreme Networks provides enterprise flexibility by delivering edge-to-core network infrastructure offerings that can be managed from on-premises, cloud or hybrid network service applications.

Extreme is a Gartner Magic Quadrant Visionary for both wired and wireless networking. Extreme generated over $1B in revenue in 2017. They are trusted by over 50% of the Fortune 50 and have 30,000 customers overall. With Extreme’s recent acquisitions of Avaya networking, Zebra Technologies and Brocade Communications, they now employ over 3000 people and conduct business in over 80 countries.

“VA&F always strives to offer best-in-class products in every market we support. We seek out innovative leadership from strong companies with bold aspirations, all driven by customer success. After evaluating multiple networking platforms and having detailed conversations with our customers, Extreme Networks was an obvious choice,” said Trent Smith, VP and GM of VA&F’s Converged Communications Group.

Extreme provides us with a wide array of network switching and wireless products to meet the diverse needs of our customers. Extreme’s fabric solution allows us to provide fully integrated switching and wi-fi solutions that are managed from a single pane of glass. CCG intends to continue to grow and support our Fortinet business. However, unlike our Fortinet solutions, Extreme can be positioned and integrate with just about any Enterprise Nextgen Firewall. Extreme’s fabric also provides enhanced security, ease of deployment, and advanced analytics.
