The Pro Football Hall of Fame recently announced a key strategic relationship with Extreme Networks
, a leading provider of high performance network solutions centered on education and community outreach in K-12 school districts across the country. The sponsorship emphasizes the commitment of both organizations to these endeavors and highlights Extreme's leadership as a provider of optimized networking and wireless solutions to support education innovation.
As part of the sponsorship, Extreme will be donating its IdentiFi wireless and high performance switch technology to be distributed across multiple school districts to stimulate online and mobile learning efforts and to aid in the management and control of wireless devices resulting from BYOD and 1-on-1 initiatives. Extreme is also powering the Hall's Heart of a Hall of Famer series
, which provides students the opportunity to hear directly from Hall of Fame players about what it took beyond athletic ability to achieve success on and off the football field, with a focus on positive character qualities.
"Extreme Networks has always been passionate about the importance of education and community outreach, and our work with the Pro Football Hall of Fame is a testament to those goals. As BYOD in the classroom continues to gain prevalence, it's important to have solutions in place to manage those networks efficiently and securely. In addition to working closely with the Pro Football Hall of Fame on community programs, this partnership extends our world class technology to K-12 districts looking to innovate their education environments," stated Bob Nilsson, Director of Solutions Marketing, Extreme Networks.
"We're excited to partner with Extreme Networks, a company that is as passionate and committed to K-12 education innovation as we are. This relationship enables us to support several programs, including the Heart of a Hall of Famer series, that are aimed at empowering today's youth and enhancing their learning experience. We're excited to kick off this relationship and look forward to enhancing our youth and education programs with Extreme," shared Dave Motts, Vice President Marketing/Sponsorship, Pro Football Hall of Fame
