Networks, Inc. and the Enterprise Mobility Solutions business unit of Motorola, Inc.  today announced that the companies have established a relationship to deliver a highly scalable unified network edge combining wired and wireless LAN (WLAN) networks that underpin mobile data and converged communications. An OEM agreement enables the companies to develop, market and support high-performance, secure, resilient and intelligent WLANs.

Extreme Networks is developing integrated wired and wireless network solutions with Motorola’s technology providing customers with a unified network that is predictable, fast and features the highest integrity. Working together and with certified sales and integration partners globally, the companies will deliver wired and WLAN infrastructure including WLAN controllers, network management tools and high-performance wireless access points (APs) that will enable next-generation mobility applications.

“Wireless is a critical part of the connected enterprise and Motorola’s innovative WLAN solutions combined with its size and experience deliver smart connectivity to enterprises, making our relationship an essential one for customers,” said Aziz Ala’ali, Regional Director for Extreme Networks, Middle East & Africa.  “The close alignment of our goals speaks to the broad and exciting vision for high-performance, Internet-connected data and communications in every business setting.”

IEEE’s 802.11n standard was recently ratified, allowing for greater speeds, performance and user density to support high density VoIP sessions, high-definition video conferences, and the seamless use of faster connections for business applications at the edge, via a wired or wireless port.

Motorola’s WLAN technology leads the industry with its time-proven resiliency, gap-free security, pervasive management, remote monitoring and policy enforcement, which substantially reduce network deployment and maintenance costs, and ensures the availability of wireless connectivity in every corner of the enterprise.

“The agreement between Motorola and Extreme Networks provides organizations with the opportunity to create the wired and wireless network of choice bringing high-performance connectivity and the benefits of mobility through our innovative wireless LAN solutions,” said Bob Sanders, vice president and general manager for Wireless Network Solutions, Motorola Enterprise Mobility Solutions.  
“Motorola has a legacy of delivering innovative mobility solutions providing businesses with tremendous flexibility in architecting their networks,” said Sujai Hajela, vice president and general manager for Enterprise WLAN, Motorola Enterprise Mobility Solutions. “By teaming with Extreme Networks we see a strong opportunity to deliver wired-wireless converged edge solutions that can help customers achieve a mobile edge.”
