Lincoln University Enables Distance Learning, Remote Access to Digital Resources From Any Location with Extreme Networks


SAN JOSE, Calif., March 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Extreme Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR), a cloud-driven networking company, today announced Lincoln University of Pennsylvania has deployed Extreme's wireless access points and cloud network management solution to provide high-speed, Wi-Fi 6 connectivity throughout its 422-acre main campus and off-campus graduate center. With increased capacity in all indoor and outdoor spaces, the University makes it easy for students, faculty, and staff to connect with digital education resources from any device, anywhere ? a need that became more pronounced with the COVID-19 pandemic and the additional requirement to offer a mix of in-person and remote instruction.

Lincoln University was founded in 1854 as the nation's first degree-granting historically black college and university (HBCU), with notable alumni including poet Langston Hughes and the first black U.S. Supreme Court Justice, Thurgood Marshall. It is a top 20 HBCU in 2021, according to U.S. News & World Report. However, the University's commitment to providing its students with an excellent education was not previously supported by a robust network infrastructure. Connectivity issues often left students and faculty unable to access educational resources or livestream online courses, a significant challenge as many students were forced to isolate in their dorms during the onset of the pandemic. The University turned to Extreme and its partner, Howard Technology Solutions, to deploy a reliable, flexible network solution that could handle the increasing demands for video streaming, remote learning, and the use of bandwidth-hungry applications.
