Award-winning IdentiFi WLAN Solution Provides Comprehensive Wireless Coverage.
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- May 20, 2014 -- Extreme Networks (Nasdaq: EXTR), a leading provider of high performance network solutions, today announced that The University of Tulsa (TU) has selected Extreme Networks to meet the University's growing mobility demands.
The University of Tulsa strives to make IT strategic to the benefit of its campus population. With about 3,400 undergraduate and 1,200 graduate and law school students who are increasingly making use of mobile devices and applications, TU required an enterprise-class WLAN solution. By implementing Extreme Networks' IdentiFi Wireless solution, the University benefits from accelerated performance and smart features, including granular controls and automation necessary to make their BYOD environment secure, flexible and simple to manage.
The University chose IdentiFi after an extensive evaluation of leading products from several companies. The individual solutions were measured for performance, scalability, cost effectiveness and ease of use. IdentiFi was selected as a cost-effective solution that would be easy to manage, provide wireless coverage across its two campuses and other locations across the city to support future mobility growth - all of which their existing wired and wireless network was unable to deliver. TU now provides an outstanding experience for its staff and students and is prepared to support current trends such as BYOD, online learning and wireless coverage for select athletic venues.
