Oral Roberts University, located in Tulsa, Oklahoma, said it has selected Extreme Networks (NASDAQ: EXTR) to upgrade its network infrastructure to support desktop and server virtualization, mobility and a BYOD environment of 4,500 students, faculty and staff.
Over the past year, ORU added about 1,000 users and over 3,500 new devices to its network. To meet these new demands, the ORU network staff needed to upgrade their existing equipment to provide more bandwidth to handle the additional traffic. ORU also needed to accommodate classroom and dorm technology such as Apple TV, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), iPads, Smart Boards and IP cameras. In response to the school´s requirements, Extreme Networks was able to deliver reliable, easy-to-manage and cost-effective solutions that helped solve ORU´s network challenges by enabling the University to transition smoothly from a 1G to 10G capacity and reduce costs for the University at the same time.
Extreme Networks delivers high-performance switching and routing products for data centre and core-to-edge networks, wired/wireless LAN access, and unified network management and control. Its website is at www.extremenetworks.com.
