Extreme Networks and Motorola Address Smart Connectivity for Broadband Wireless Networking

10/21/09 - Extreme Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: EXTR) and the Enterprise Mobility Solutions business unit of Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) announced that the companies have established a relationship to deliver a highly scalable unified network edge combining wired and wireless LAN (WLAN) networks that underpin mobile data and converged communications. An OEM agreement enables the companies to develop, market and support high-performance, secure, resilient and intelligent WLANs.

Extreme Networks is developing integrated wired and wireless network solutions with Motorola's technology providing customers with a unified network that is predictable, fast and features the highest integrity. Working together and with certified sales and integration partners globally, the companies will deliver wired and WLAN infrastructure including WLAN controllers, network management tools and high-performance wireless access points (APs) that will enable next-generation mobility applications.

"Wireless is a critical part of the connected enterprise and Motorola's innovative WLAN solutions, combined with its size and experience delivering smart connectivity to enterprises, make our relationship an essential one for customers," said Paul Hooper, vice president and general manager for the Volume Products Group for Extreme Networks. "The close alignment of our goals speaks to the broad and exciting vision for high-performance, Internet-connected data and communications in every business setting."

IEEE's 802.11n standard was recently ratified, allowing for greater speeds, performance and user density to support high density VoIP sessions, high-definition video conferences, and the seamless use of faster connections for business applications at the edge, via a wired or wireless port.

Motorola's WLAN technology leads the industry with its time-proven resiliency, gap-free security, pervasive management, remote monitoring and policy enforcement, which substantially reduce network deployment and maintenance costs, and ensures the availability of wireless connectivity in every corner of the enterprise.

"The agreement between Motorola and Extreme Networks provides organizations with the opportunity to create the wired and wireless network of choice bringing high-performance connectivity and the benefits of mobility through our innovative wireless LAN solutions," said Bob Sanders, vice president and general manager for Wireless Network Solutions, Motorola Enterprise Mobility Solutions.

"Motorola has a legacy of delivering innovative mobility solutions providing businesses with tremendous flexibility in architecting their networks," said Sujai Hajela, vice president and general manager for Enterprise WLAN, Motorola Enterprise Mobility Solutions. "By teaming with Extreme Networks we see a strong opportunity to deliver wired-wireless converged edge solutions that can help customers achieve a mobile edge."

With the relationship, Extreme Networks today launches its new portfolio of wireless LAN solutions based on Motorola's Enterprise Wireless LAN solutions that are available this quarter. The new Summit® WM3000 family of scalable WLAN controllers features integrated security and supports mobility applications, providing customers with WLAN solutions for their differing stages of growth.

Extreme Networks complete portfolio of resilient WLAN components includes 802.11n APs that offer reliable wireless coverage and high capacity for demanding applications and communications. Additionally, Extreme Networks Wireless Management Suite simplifies management of wireless network and services for network administrators.

Extreme Networks and Motorola are also working together on a unified wired and wireless LAN solution that integrates Motorola's WLAN-controller function with Extreme Networks award-wining portfolio of Ethernet LAN switches. In addition to accelerating network performance with the adoption of 802.11n, Extreme Networks WLAN solutions enable common security and management policies across both wired and wireless LANs in the enterprise.
