Partner Profile: Extreme Networks & Super Bowl LII

Super Bowl Utilizes Extreme Networks

One of our partners, Extreme Networks has made significant moves in Gartner’s magic quadrant.  Over the past four years Extreme has gone from 13th in the enterprise networking space to #3 and with the acquisitions of Avaya and Brocade they have positioned themselves as a disrupter to wired and wireless networking vendors.

This year’s Super Bowl is set to take place at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. With a seating capacity of about 67,000 fans you can bet the stadium’s Wi-Fi network will feel the pressure. Millions of touch points in the stadium mean security and reporting tools will be critical for IT and stadium personnel to gain actionable insights. This is a challenge we often manage and Extreme is prepared.

Data consumption numbers are growing year over year and a stadium is a perfect place to capture and see these types of statistics.  With today’s highly-connected fan, new game day apps, stadium apps, and social media engagement it is imperative that IT personnel have access to real-time data in order to diagnose, troubleshoot, and solve issues before they happen. Extreme Analytics provides those insights, visibility, and control.



Analytics like this are imperative for large-scale, live events. In fact, utilizing this technology is key for stadiums and arena events of all sizes, not just the Super Bowl. And, when paired with our managed service teams, Wi-Fi, security, and reporting are no problem. We’ve been working with arenas, stadiums, and businesses for over 20 years to expertly manage their networks and analytics.

In fact, two upcoming events are the perfect place to discuss how our team, paired with Extreme Networks, can improve your analytics and networks.
