Extreme Networks completes acquisition of Aerohive Networks

Combined company forms Enterprise Cloud Networking Leader, bringing cloud management excellence to extensive edge-to-cloud, wired and wireless solutions portfolio.

Extreme Networks has completed its acquisition of Aerohive Networks, a pioneer in cloud-managed networking, bringing together the world's #2 leader in cloud managed wireless LAN services¹ with the #3 provider of enterprise networking equipment. With Aerohive, Extreme will offer customers and partners more choices for cloud and on-premises wired and wireless technology, including the industry's broadest array of wireless LAN solutions at a critical technology transition to Wi-Fi 6 – all from a single vendor and backed by its award-winning, insourced services and support team.

 

The acquisition of Aerohive adds critical cloud management and edge capabilities to Extreme's portfolio of end-to-end, edge to cloud software-driven networking solutions. It expands Extreme's technology leadership in Wi-Fi and NAC, adding cloud-managed Wi-Fi and NAC solutions to complement its on-premises Wi-Fi and NAC technology, driving Extreme deeper into key verticals and presenting numerous opportunities for cross-sell and up-sell within the combined portfolios. It also brings new SD-WAN capabilities to Extreme's solutions mix. Now, customers and partners of Extreme and Aerohive will be able to mix and match a broader array of software, hardware, and services Elements to create networks that support their unique needs and that may be managed and automated from end-to-end – from the enterprise edge to the cloud – to advance their digital transformation efforts.
