Extreme Networks’ deal with the NFL has implications for in-game betting Matt Rybaltowski, SportsHandle · September 20, 2021 at 4:14 pm Extreme Networks announced Monday that it reached a deal with the NFL to remain as the official Wi-Fi network solutions provider and official Wi-Fi analytics provider of the league through 2024. The multi-year partnership has considerable implications for in-game betting from an in-stadium perspective as mobile sports wagering continues to proliferate. Mobile sports betting is live in more than a dozen states, with several others ready to add an online component over the next six months. Under the deal, the San Jose-based, cloud-driven networking company is adding new Wi-Fi 6 deployments with several NFL franchises, including the Baltimore Ravens, Green Bay Packers, New England Patriots, and Seattle Seahawks. Wi-Fi 6 is largely considered to be the next generation of Wi-Fi based on its added speed capabilities and improved efficiency.
