"In order to deliver fast and dependable applications over the wireless network for 75,000 fans, we need a Wi-Fi analytics solution that is dependable, effective and provides insights into fan engagement in our venues. Extreme Networks successfully delivered on all three of these qualifications at Super Bowl XLVIII and XLIX.

"Last year's Super Bowl surpassed the largest amount of data ever consumed in a single day. More fans are expressing the need to capture, upload and share their experiences and it has caused data usage to skyrocket at big games, heightening the need for a solution to monitor and measure the vast number of devices on the network at one time. ExtremeAnalytics is unique because it provides intelligent, actionable insights that boost network performance in real time, ensuring that fans are never without wireless coverage."
