SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Extreme Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR) today announced that it is continuing its tradition of supporting leading gaming events as a Gold Level sponsor of NorthCon 2012, Germany's largest gaming and computer festival, where the company worked with its partner Innovalan to provide the high speed backbone network. At the NorthCon LANparty, 2,500 gamers met to play and compete on a state of the art high performance Ethernet LAN with full gigabit connections to many of the gaming systems and 10GbE for interconnects and the network backbone.

NorthCon hosts a multi-day video gaming tournament near Hamburg, held at the "NorthCon eSport arena that attracts international attention from leading players and teams who will play the world's most exciting titles, such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and League of Legends.
