A Visionary Partner with Trailblazing Solutions
This year, there were several key integrations spearheaded by Carousel using Extreme technologies that contributed to this tremendous growth. Following a massive wireless integration of the Buffalo Bills’ 71,870-seat Ralph Wilson Stadium, the two companies achieved several record-breaking statistics using Extreme’s Stadium 2.0 solution – including the most connected fans at one time and the most unique devices connected on game day, all while providing strong and reliable wireless connectivity.
Carousel also worked alongside Extreme Networks to help Oral Roberts University realize its ambitious vision of creating a ‘digital society’. This implementation enables students to experience the full breadth of a physical campus anywhere in the world via trailblazing technologies such as telepresence robots.
“Our work with Extreme Networks is helping customers break through traditional frontiers and enabling more innovative, revenue-generating applications of wireless technology,” said Brad McCain, Sr. Director of Data Solutions Group, Carousel Industries. “As a company, we are very proud of what we have achieved with Extreme — but we are even more excited about what is possible moving forward as our customers take their own businesses to the next level.”
