SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Extreme Networks, Inc.
(Nasdaq: EXTR) today announced that Brazil's Procempa, a leading ICT company,
has successfully implemented the company's high performance switching
solutions for a complete, city-wide wired and wireless network. The Infoway
Procempa network supports Procempa's mission to benefit the lives of Porto

    km of Fiber cabling
  oThe network also provides wireless broadband to more than 350 municipal
    buildings, thousands of employees and approximately 100 schools
  oFor video surveillance, more than 1,000 IP cameras are supported within
    public schools and the transit system today with near term plans to
    support hundreds more
  o2,000+ VoIP lines are supported allowing the Municipality of Porto Alegre

Procempa's converged network, supported with design and implementation
services from Extreme Networks solutions provider Damovo.

"The ambitious Infoway project and deployment of Extreme Networks Gigabit
Ethernet solutions began in 2006 when it was revealed that the previous ATM
network was not compatible with a new generation of digital services, part of
an ambitious multi-year plan with government leaders to position Port Alegre
as a central point for connectivity in Brazil and internationally," said
Lafaiete Everardi dos Santos, Operations Manager at Procempa. "In addition to
ensuring increased scale and the flexibility to deliver all services for the
Infoway, the solution features the ExtremeXOS® OS, that is capable of managing
and configuring our wired and wireless hybrid networks, all from a single
switch and management console. This distinction is important for Procempa to
be able to create a truly integrated network infrastructure that incorporates
a unified view of all the multiple services it needs to support."
