Webinar - Extreme Networks, Carousel Industries Team Up for Campus Mobility Webinar
By Tammy Wolf, TMCnet Web Editor
It’s no secret that mobility is taking campus networks by storm, with students becoming increasingly reliant on their mobile devices in order to collaborate with peers and professors, and complete assignments on-the-go.
More than 700 education institutions are currently running on Extreme Networks’ (News - Alert) Mobile Student architecture, which boasts a distributed and converged WLAN and wired data plane, as well as rich identity management and low total cost of ownership. Even more, the solution scales and applies equally well to other enterprise campus environments, including hospitality, public sector and manufacturing – proof that Extreme Networks is helping lead the way for the pervasiveness of mobility across all verticals.
Now, Extreme Networks, along with virtualization company Carousel Industries, will host a webinar entitled “Addressing Mobility in Campus Networks.” Set to take place Friday, Nov. 11, 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT, the webinar will focus on Extreme’s scalable WLAN portfolio, and take a closer look at unified policy management as it applies to the campus environment.
Attendees of this webinar will learn where the industry is headed in terms of mobility and networking; some of the latest product trends for addressing mobility; new technologies around identity-based networking; and best practices for reducing costs and overhead when dealing with mobile users.
CIOs, network architects and network operators looking to deploy solutions to address challenges associated with a mobile workforce, mobile students and the concept of “Bring Your Own Device,” as well as resellers, VARs and channels looking to learn about emerging trends and solutions around campus and wireless solutions, are encouraged to attend this webinar.
Leading the webinar will be Shehzad Merchant, vice president of Strategic Technology at Extreme Networks, where he oversees strategy and technology direction for advanced data center networking. An industry veteran, Merchant has more than 17 years of experience and a strong engineering background that has catapulted him toward achieving several technology patents, and becoming a pioneer in wireless Ethernet and communications. Prior to his post at Extreme Networks, Merchant served in many technology and executive management roles at leading companies like Nevis, a network security provider.
