Extreme Networks, a specialist in cloud networking, has announced it has been named as a Gartner Peer Insights Customers' Choice for Enterprise Wired and Wireless LAN Infrastructure for the sixth consecutive year.

The company received a 4.7 out of 5 rating as of May 2023 among globally representative customers across verticals, including education, healthcare, government and manufacturing.
