SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Extreme Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR) today announced new 100GbE and 40 GbE modules for its Open Fabric switch, the BlackDiamond® X8. High density 'XL' 100GbE and 40 GbE switch modules offer industry leading scale, supporting up to a million routes, Virtual Machines (VMs) and flow entries in the network.  Extreme Networks also announced support of Big Switch Networks Software Defined Networking (SDN) applications providing progressive and centralized methods to achieve network monitoring and virtualize networks. 

Extreme Networks 100/40GbE XL modules help to scale the network for a variety of highly virtualized multi-tenant cloud data centers, Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) and data center core deployments. The capability to scale to a million route entries, addresses and flows, and to logically segment Multi-tenant networks with L2 broadcast domains are critical elements in building next-generation data center networks.

Extreme Networks, with its open and modular ExtremeXOS® operating system, continues delivering on its SDN roadmap with support of two SDN applications: Big Switch Networks' Big Tap®, providing traffic monitoring and dynamic network visibility with flow filtering. And for virtualized data center networks, Big Switch Networks' BVS (Big Virtual Switch) application virtualizes the network by provisioning the physical network into multiple logical networks across the stack, from Layer 2 to 7.

Extreme Networks new 4 port 100GbE and 12 port 40GbE modules offer high performance and options for virtualized data centers where density, power efficiency and performance are mission critical.  The modules support 100GbE & 40GbE with non-blocking, wire-speed performance of Layer 2/3 services,  Layer 2/3 ACLs and flow flexibility with support of 100G-SR (100m) and 100G-OR (10Km) optics, a boost in scale of tables supported via an upgraded TCAM, and fault tolerance and redundancy with N+1 power support.
