Executive Perspectives

Zeus Kerravala, Founder and Principal Analyst, ZK Research "The evolution of Extreme's product offerings for the education vertical continues to elevate their expertise and position in the market. Extreme Management Center 8.0 delivers new features that perfectly align with school IT departments' pain points around increasing number of devices and quality end-user experiences."

Mike Seitz, Vice President, IK Network Solutions "The new upgrades to Extreme Management Center 8.0 allow us to provide better monitoring services for our customers in need of an easy-to-use, single interface that delivers actionable insights for network performance. Not only does this help us resolve client issues, it empowers our customers to be more proactive when looking to improve the end-user experience, therefore meeting their expectations for superior connectivity."

David Monachino, Network Engineer, Douglas County School District "We're thrilled with the new enhancements to Extreme Management Center 8.0. Our small IT staff had been stretched to keep up with the latest edtech trends, and these new capabilities provide the best level of control and visibility that we were looking for in order to support our school's 1:1 computing and BYOD programs, especially during online testing periods."

Zachary Blazich, Network Administrator, Salem School District "From one easy-to-use web interface, I've been able to view information on individual devices, available port statistics and network uptime. This has significantly streamlined my daily workflow since I no longer have to open other features to complete tasks when managing activity on the network. I'm impressed by the new enhancements and excited to use the new interface moving forward."
