Extreme Networks and Netco Sports go partners: The two companies team up to transform users’ mobile experience in the world of sport

Paris, France – April 20th 2015 – Extreme Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: EXTR) and Netco Sports join force to create a whole new value chain from installation of the application infrastructure, and also to deliver incrementally improved experience to sport fans – in stadiums and during sport events.

Sport organizations are now looking for a better computing solution, which provides a high-density network with total visibility and control allowing for a large number of devices to connect and stream rich content consistently at the same time as well as return reliable statistics needed for identify the most used devices or platforms in order to create their own mobile applications. Extreme Networks sees the challenge and therefore brings its expertise in the analysis and implementation of wireless solutions that solve the issue. Having a personalized approach, Extreme Networks provides technology solutions that communicate with mobile devices to propose the best in-game experience, automatically and predictably.

 

“The experience and the fans’ consumption patterns during sport events are evolving. Without adequate infrastructure, users cannot fully enjoy the richness of our applications and services”_ said Stanislas de Villelongue, General Manager of Netco Sports.

 

“Just like our US partnership with NFL, we are pleased to be working closely with Netco Sports team to meet sport lovers‘ expectations when they come to the stadium. With the freedom offered for using their applications to interact with the community and be ‘actors’, fans will find themselves the pleasure coming to the stadium. This satisfaction should retain viewers.” _ said Frédéric Aguilar, Technical Director of Extreme Networks France. “In addition to the reliability and quality of the wireless network, Extreme Networks provides monitoring and analysis tools that will allow players to understand better the performance of their network and application usage by the audience, thus opening the door to new revenue opportunities”.
