Extreme’s Commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility

We are relentless in our commitment to our customers and partners around the world, building networks that drive competitive advantages, accelerate innovation, and improve the human experience. This includes a commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR) in our own business, and in fostering this with our business partners and our supply chain.

One of our biggest achievements this year was the reduction of our carbon emissions by 20% thanks to Bloom Energy‘s fuel cell technology!

Continued Supply Chain Updates
Extreme Networks Update on Prioritization of Shipments

Given the global supply chain challenges we are all experiencing, we’d like to provide the latest Extreme Networks guidance on the prioritization of shipments.

Shipments will be made to the customers that “Accept Partial” shipment terms, with the remaining shipments occurring when hardware becomes available. Please be aware that orders with “No Partials” shipment terms will not have inventory held and/or aggregated and could therefore be delayed.

We are working with our distributors to establish more efficient processes, and we encourage our distributors and resellers to accept partial shipments.

Services will not be impacted negatively; services will begin after the last shipment of an order with the option to request to extend the start date by 90 days after shipment is complete.

Please work with your customers and distributor to allow partial shipment on your orders.

Questions? Please contact your distributor.

Supply Chain Letter for Your Customers

If your customers would like an update on where we and our industry stand with regards to our supply chain challenges, please reach out to your PAM or DPAM for a customized letter from Extreme Networks.

Access Open Book and End of Sale Announcements

If you have questions about Hardware Lead-Time updates, Open Book Announcements, and/or End of Sale Announcements, please work directly with your distributor or partner account manager.
