Founded in 1996, Extreme has over two decades of experience in the networking industry. As a global networking solutions provider, we are financially strong with more than 30,000 customers in over 80 countries, more than 3,000 employees worldwide and 2,000+ local technology partners. Extreme is headquartered in San Jose, California.
In November 2013, Extreme acquired Enterasys, which originated in 1983 as Cabletron System. Together, this resulted in more than 50 years of networking experience, offering differentiated products and solutions across a broad portfolio and R&D investments to accelerate high-performance networking solutions.
In July 2017, Extreme completed the acquisition of Avaya’s Networking business as part of the company’s growth strategy. In October 2017, Extreme also acquired Brocade Communications Systems’ Switching, Routing and Analytics (SRA) Data Center business. The Avaya Networking and Brocade Data Center Networking acquisitions come shortly after Extreme successfully completed the integration of Zebra’s wireless LAN business, including AirDefense wireless security. These acquisitions – along with Extreme’s organic investments in R&D – have resulted in a state-of-the-art, newly-refreshed portfolio of enterprise solutions for Extreme customers. Extreme is now the third largest competitor in the enterprise wired and wireless IP networking market.
These acquisitions have played a big role in Extreme’s growth. Our acquisitions have helped to consolidate the market, opened up new markets for us, broadened our product portfolio, and introduced us to more than 10,000 new customers. Through organic execution and acquisitions, Extreme has catapulted from #13 in enterprise networking to number #3.
