In today's highly connected, and overly stimulated world, it is exceedingly difficult to measure user engagement, improve the mobile and social user experience, and ensure the integrity of mission critical networks. Purview uniquely addresses these complex requirements by integrating with network data that carries context of users, devices, locations and applications in use. Purview captures network data and then aggregates, analyzes, correlates, characterizes, and finally reports; providing unprecedented insight into how and why systems and users perform. Purview leverages breakthrough technology to bridge the gap between IT network management, security, and business intelligence through a single integrated view. Purview helps organizations improve user experience, while meeting the growing needs of network users, and improving network performance. The benefits of Purview can be realized with Extreme Networks solutions, or networks from any other Ethernet switching vendor.

"We want to deliver the most immersive and connected experience for our fans at the stadium and Purview from Extreme Networks can help enhance the fan experience through its advanced analytics capabilities," said Michelle McKenna-Doyle, CIO of the National Football League. "In delivering insight on user application preference and usage, our teams are able to best use the Wi-Fi technology to deliver an exceptional game day experience."  

Purview is the official Wi-Fi analytics solution for the National Football League (NFL), available to all 32 teams. Purview is currently deployed across four NFL stadiums, and Purview provided the Wi-Fi analytics for the NFL at Super Bowl XLVIII, as shown in the infographic.

"With the explosion of enterprise mobility, social and collaborative applications, network infrastructure is now viewed as an enterprise IT asset and a key contributor to optimizing business applications and strategic intelligence," said Rohit Mehra, vice president, network infrastructure, IDC. "Solutions such as Purview are unique in terms of providing rich application analytics integrated within a network management platform, so enterprise IT is enabled with deep visibility and control of data, applications and users, for better business decisions, easily and efficiently."

"We believe that the better the connection, the better the experience," said Chuck Berger, president and CEO, Extreme Networks. "To guarantee a better user experience, the enterprise must see the network as a strategic business asset. With Purview, we have introduced a groundbreaking offering that leverages the network to empower customers and partners to improve interactions with end users, enhance engagement and optimize system efficiencies. This deeper level of insight allows organizations to rapidly make well-informed decisions aimed at improving the user experience."

Purview is capable of collecting, analyzing and reporting application data from the entire network, including wired and wireless devices and core/data centers.
