SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Extreme Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR - News) today announced that a unanimous jury in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin has awarded a complete victory to Extreme Networks in a patent case filed against Enterasys Networks, Inc. The jury found that Enterasys Networks had infringed all three of Extreme Networks' asserted patents. Extreme Networks also defeated Enterasys' challenge to the validity of the Company's patents.

These successful results followed Extreme Networks earlier defeat of Enterasys' claims for damages when the Judge determined that the Company did not infringe any of the Enterasys patents in the lawsuit.

"This is another great legal victory for Extreme Networks," said Mark Canepa, president and CEO of Extreme Networks. "After validating our patents, the court found that Enterasys had infringed upon the patents while Extreme Networks had not infringed upon any of the Enterasys patents in the case."
