Extreme Networks extends leadership position among cloud-managed network services providers
Extreme Networks announced it is one of the fastest growing cloud-managed network service providers and is the second-ranking brand in the industry as reported in 650 Group’s June 2021 Cloud-Managed Network Services Report.
Extreme is significantly outpacing the market, including the market leader, and holds more market share than the third and fourth ranked vendors combined.
According to 650 Group, the cloud-managed network services market experienced 38% growth year-over-year from 2020 to 2021, while Extreme delivered 101% growth during that same period. Extreme was ranked as the second leading vendor in the cloud-managed network services market.
The 650 Group anticipates additional growth in the cloud-managed network services market over the next five years as vendors bring further innovation to the market such as artificial intelligence (AI), analytics, and locationing. The report shows that Wi-Fi 6 market revenues have doubled year-over-year and forecasts that the highest growth access point (AP) types in 2022 will be Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E systems. Wi-Fi 6 ensures networks can support the bandwidth demands of the rapidly increasing number of internal and external IoT devices that flood every organization today.
