FULLERTON, CA, August 14, 2018 — Altura Communication Solutions has teamed with Extreme Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR) to simplify and secure enterprise networks, ensuring readiness for IoT and digital transformation.
As businesses embark on Digital Transformation and are faced with an ever-increasing number of Internet-connected devices, having an agile, secure and resilient network foundation has become critical. Traditional network architectures are complex to manage and lack flexibility to seamlessly scale to support new devices, introducing a multitude of network vulnerabilities.
By leveraging Extreme Networks’ Extreme Fabric Connect™ technology, part of its Automated Campus™ solution, Altura Communications is providing a simple, secure alternative to complex and outdated networking architectures, helping networking teams be more responsive to their business, reduce operational costs, and increase their ability to innovate.
With thousands of unique deployments, spanning every industry, the Extreme Fabric Connect technology aligns with Altura’s goal of making technology easy for businesses. Based on a simplified network infrastructure, this technology enables Altura’s diverse range of enterprise customers to:
- Automate many of today’s manual network processes to be more agile and reduce the risk of error
- Facilitate the use of digital technology and deploy applications 31x faster
- Conduct network moves, adds and changes on the fly instead of waiting for maintenance windows
- Increase the performance and scale of complex multicast applications by 28x
- Enhance network security by eliminating back-door entry points, preventing lateral movements and isolating potentially insecure IoT devices.
Gordon McIntosh, Vice President Worldwide Channels, Extreme Networks, Inc.:
“Growing networks, constrained IT budgets and constant threats to security keep more than a few network and IT managers up at night.
