Extreme CEO: New products in 2012, growth in 2013

John Dix and Jim Duffy | Dec. 22, 2011
After years of stagnant or lackluster growth, Extreme Networks tapped Oscar Rodriguez to bring new life to the switch maker in 2010.

It's getting to the point where, thanks to applications that are coming from the mobility side, every iPad and every Android (device) is going to have a different set of applications per user and so the traffic is no longer predictable. You've got to have policy that's applied that is based on the criteria of what we should be allowed to do on the network, the types of resources we should be allowed to access, the kind of bandwidth and quality of service that we need to have, and that needs to go all the way back into the data center.
