Going Head To Head With Competitors

Extreme Networks' leading strategist, Dan Dulac, said the networking vendor has its sights set on rivals Cisco Systems, Hewlett Packard Enterprise-Aruba and Arista Networks with a new arsenal of technologies acquired from Avaya, Brocade Communications and Zebra Technologies.

"The way we think about Extreme now in the marketplace is, we are really the only alternative to Cisco as it relates to end to end, the data center and all the way out to the wireless edge," said Dulac, vice president of product management and strategy for Extreme, adding his company can now go "head to head" with Arista.

In an interview with CRN, Dulac talks about how Extreme's product and M&A strategy is turning up the heat on its enterprise networking competitors.
