A vendor’s reputation speaks for itself; it is built on how well the vendor delivers for its customers, employees, shareholders, and the community at large. Building a reputation takes years of hard work and consistency.

“At Duxbury Networking we believe that by surrounding ourselves with dynamic, like-minded suppliers, we will be able to fulfil our promise to our customers to provide them with networking solutions that ensure reliability, redundancy, scalability, visibility and reporting capability. One such OEM is Extreme Networks, with the company repeatedly featuring as a customers choice in Gartner’s Peer Insights,” says Pete Nel, Business Development Executive at Duxbury Networking, local distributors for Extreme Networking technology.

Testament to Extreme’s customer-centric approach is evident in the recent news that for the fifth consecutive year it has been selected as a Gartner Peer Insights* Customer Choice for Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure. Achieving this goal year after year requires constant effort and work to support customers, listening to what works and what doesn’t, and taking their suggestions into account, regardless of the industry or region they are in.

In May 2022, Extreme received a 4.7 out of 5 rating out of 546 customer ratings from around the world. 91% of respondents said they would “recommend” Extreme’s solutions and services. Customers cited several key reasons for choosing Extreme, including flexibility and ease of new deployments, excellent IT support services, and strong connectivity in demanding environments.

In an online article[1] by Light Reading’s Editorial Director, 5G & Mobile Strategies – Mike Dano – he cites financial analysts at WestPark Capital: “Extreme Networks has the potential to be both a rising star and a disruptor in enterprise networking, bringing a streamlined architectural vision of wireless enterprise connectivity and an agile culture to a number of key verticals.”

“We’re going to see a significant ramp up as major telcos start deploying this cloud-native infrastructure solution where we’re the sole source vendor for networking around the major service provider 5G networks around the globe,” says Extreme Networks CEO Ed Meyercord.
