Extreme Networks, Inc. announced that leading national retailer, The Limited, supporting 222 stores across more than 40 states, has selected its high performance data center network, converged edge and wireless LAN solutions featuring 802.11n technology to boost the performance and efficiency of its business.

The Limited is an iconic name in retail providing an exceptional shopping experience -- both in its stores and online -- for successful women who select from private-label apparel appealing to both style and sophistication. The Limited recently singled out Extreme Networks leading-edge network core and data center performance and its broad converged wired and wireless network portfolio for the edge. The network fuels The Limited's sales, marketing, and customer service while supporting the needs of mobile employees.

The Limited has fortified its network by creating a highly scalable and responsive data center and a converged wired and wireless network addressing mission-critical business applications. The network enables employees, who require mobile access and converged multimedia, to stay productive and enjoy rich videoconferencing. The Limited leverages a high performance network infrastructure supporting thousands of daily transactions, high definition video conferencing, and voice over IP (VoIP) between its sites.

"Successful retail hinges on the consistent and gratifying experience of every customer and Extreme Networks has gone above and beyond the task in delivering the performance, features and value from our network to help make this happen," said Roger Coville, CIO for The Limited. "Creating solutions that are fast, responsive and cost effective dovetails with The Limited's technology acquisition strategy, and these attributes were found with Extreme Networks, which is partnering with us to implement a powerful and intelligent wired/wireless Ethernet solution and data center that enables us to achieve our business goals."

The Limited has deployed Extreme Networks Summit X450 and Summit X480 fixed Gigabit switches for high performance aggregation of critical business information within its data centers. Additionally, Wireless LAN controllers and network convergence switches are deployed at the network edge for its offices, including the Summit X450a and Summit WM 3000 series wireless LAN controllers with Altitude access points. The solution enables secure and flexible connections and wireless mobility within The Limited's main sites found in Columbus, Ohio and New York City.

"The Limited has created an impressive retail capability leveraging the extensibility of a high performance data center and converged network to connect mobile and distributed employees," said Paul Hooper, chief marketing officer for Extreme Networks. "Extreme Networks is proud to provide mission critical capabilities enabling the delivery of integrated communications and seamless mobility."

Extreme Networks, with its innovative ExtremeXOS operating system from end-to-end, simplifies the operation of the network, from across the room or across the country, with consistent features and commands.

Based in Columbus, Ohio, The Limited, an affiliated portfolio company of Sun Capital Partners, Inc., is well-known as the store concept that began mall-based specialty retailing as we know it. Drawing on more than 40 years of presence in American shopping centers, The Limited is an iconic fashion retailer that offers high-quality, private-label apparel designed to help the modern woman succeed with Design-driven, fashionable styles include suiting, sweaters, dresses, denim, outerwear, and accessories -- to suit her lifestyle demands, from workday to weekend.
