  • Extreme provided the Washington County School District with high-performance wireless and wired solutions, including IdentiFiā„¢ Wireless and NetSight®, to ease the management burden and provide increased visibility for its small network staff managing the campus network comprised of over 4,000 users in 50 buildings across nine locations.

Customer Perspectives

Sandra Coppedge, IT Director, Washington County School District"We chose Extreme Networks for their unique ability to provide device visibility and centralized management of the wired and wireless network. The visibility of our new Extreme network has enabled us to deliver a secure network by providing us with the ability to see and track all the devices on our network. It is very exciting and the students, faculty, staff and guests love the new wireless access. Not only is it faster, but it allows users to take their devices from school-to-school without signing on each time."

Chris Thompson, CIO, Elmbrook School District"As a top-tier school district, we are constantly challenged to innovate and personalize learning for our 7,000 students. By aligning with Extreme Networks, we are able to provide a robust and flexible environment that allows our 525 teachers to focus on the successful integration of interactive technologies and student devices, including Chromebooks and iPads. Further, Extreme Networks continues to add value to our approach to engage all students in their learning by taking an active and ongoing interest in the student achievement goals of the district. Together, we are able to share best practices in technology and education and deliver on our district's mission to educate and inspire every student to think, to learn, and to succeed."

Jonathan Kidwell, Director of Education, Extreme Networks"In school districts that strive to provide personalized learning and the ability to integrate technology with student learning initiatives, there is a strong need for a reliable and powerful wireless infrastructure that can support such objectives. As a proven leader in K-12 technology, Extreme is able to provide both the solution and support for school districts across the globe."
