Extreme Networks Agrees to Acquire Wirelss LAN Business from Zebra Technologies

We are pleased to share with you that Extreme Networks has signed an agreement to acquire Zebra Technologies’ wireless LAN business. ScanSource will be able to continue to provide Zebra’s full wireless LAN portfolio, which will become a part of the existing Extreme networks product line. This includes the complete Zebra WLAN portfolio of access points, controllers, software, advanced security (AirDefense and WIPS) and award-winning WiNG operating system.

We don’t expect any disruption in the market and ScanSource will continue to offer the same service level than in the past for the complete wireless LAN product range: good stock levels, trainings, seminars, webinars and all needed actions to promote the new brand.

Members of the Zebra® PartnerConnect program that are active in selling and integrating WLAN solutions will be contacted by Extreme over the coming weeks with instructions on how to become members of the Extreme Partner Network. ScanSource will help in the transition and if you have still uncertainties about the move, don’t hesitate to contact one of our Account managers.

ScanSource is the largest distributor of actual Zebra wireless portfolio in the world and we have the guarantee from Extreme networks that actual Zebra partners can count on us to continue to benefit from existing structure. The change is effective today, Oct 31st and all the open orders you have placed in the previous weeks are ready to be processed. You may expect a short delay in shipments but we will make sure the business is not disrupted for too long and that SCSC as usual will maintain the right standard level the wireless business requires.
