"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."
