Extreme Networks Becomes First Official Wi-Fi Provider of NFL

November 21, 2014

Networking company Extreme Networks has announced an expanded relationship to become the first official Wi-Fi provider of the National Football League (NFL).

As part of the sponsorship, Extreme Networks and the NFL will work together to enhance the fan experience through Extreme Networks’ technology in NFL stadiums.

Extreme Networks became the Official Wi-Fi Analytics Provider of the NFL earlier this year and will also continue in this role.

Extreme Networks’ Wi-Fi solutions are currently used in the stadiums of six NFL teams; the New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles, Jacksonville Jaguars, Cincinnati Bengals, Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans.

“Enhancing the fan experience continues to be one the NFL’s top priorities,” the league’s chief information officer, Michelle McKenna-Doyle, said.

“By teaming up with Extreme Networks, we’re building the technology infrastructure needed and delivering on the high standards we have put in place to give our fans the type of experience they deserve.”

Extreme Networks president and chief executive Chuck Berger said: “We live in a world transformed by digital technology, and as a society, we’ve developed heightened expectations about how technology should support us – at work, at home and even at stadia.

“As the official Wi-Fi solutions provider and Wi-Fi analytics provider of the NFL, we’re helping the league to meet and exceed expectations during games for today’s highly connected fans.”
