BERLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EXTREME CONNECT CONFERENCE – Extreme Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR), a leader in cloud networking, today announced that Living Tomorrow Innovation Campus, an experimental lab located just outside of Brussels, Belgium, has selected Extreme as its network connectivity partner to build, test and validate cutting-edge, technology-driven experiences and products. In collaboration with a wide network of customers, partners and government agencies, Extreme will work with Living Tomorrow to promote and design innovative products that are likely to become widely adopted by the year 2030. The Living Tomorrow Innovation campus will become the largest technological showcase to date, with a 10,000-square-meter demo center.
The advanced technologies across the Innovation Campus, from automated assistants greeting guests at the hotel’s front desk to surgical robots within the healthcare lab, will be powered by Extreme’s wired and wireless networking solutions, including hundreds of AP4000 Wi-Fi 6E access points (APs). Extreme will also showcase innovative networking solutions in the Digital Experience Center, a large space that includes a conference center and 96 hotel rooms outfitted with smart technology. Here, Extreme will demonstrate how autonomous networks will work in the future, and showcase how leveraging digital twin technology will transform network operations, product development and the customer journey.
The first Living Tomorrow project, called The House of the Future, opened in 1995. Since then, Living Tomorrow has helped introduce innovations including the mobile phone, solar panels, electric cars and video conferencing. The new Living Tomorrow Innovation Campus will help to progress technologies including drone transportation, remote surgeries and autonomous vehicles.
Living Tomorrow’s IT team will also rely on ExtremeAnalytics™ and ExtremeCloud™ IQ to provide insights into network performance and application usage to optimize connectivity across the campus, improve guest experiences and enhance security and IT productivity. Further, ExtremeCloud IQ will enable the IT team to leverage AI to automate tasks related to daily network maintenance and detect anomalies in network activity. This will help ensure incredible guest experiences, as issues can be easily identified and resolved before users are impacted, as well as help improve network security and IT team efficiency.
