Isleta Casino and Resort Selects Extreme Networks for Converged Networking

The Isleta Casino and Resort, near Albuquerque, New Mexico, has selected Extreme Networks to provide its facilities with a new converged network and professional services for network assessment, design and deployment.

Extreme Networks will provide a complete solution for the organization, meeting all of the casino and resort's performance, voice, video and data convergence, security and wireless LAN requirements.

To replace an outdated network, Extreme Networks said that it worked with Isleta to build a new converged network from the ground up, conducting various network and IT assessments to help ensure that Isleta Casino and Resort could implement the necessary security, deliver IPTV video services and provide mobility for guests and staff throughout via wired and wireless LANs.

Extreme Networks deployed its BlackDiamond 8810 modular switches to provide data aggregation, Summit X450 fixed switches with power over ethernet at the edge, and its Summit WM system with Altitude 350 wireless LAN access points for fast wireless connectivity.

The entire network for Isleta Casino and Resort, including wired and wireless, data, voice and video, is managed with Extreme Networks EPICenter software suite, providing comprehensive network management tools and a unified view to simplify device configuration and status monitoring, said Extreme Networks. Additionally, the Extreme Networks Sentriant threat mitigation solution constantly monitors the network for abnormal traffic behavior and virus threats that lack signatures, helping to ensure integrity of data and communications.
