Extreme Networks Open Fabric Edge Delivers High Performance Network Solution For Enterprise Campuses





SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Extreme Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR) today announced further expansion of its Open Fabric network architecture, extending the network edge to scale for multiple services and bring advanced capabilities driven by ExtremeXOS® to the network edge, where devices and users require innovation. The Open Fabric Edge enables Unified Communications (UC), Physical Security (PhySec) systems, Audio-Video Bridging (AVB), and WLAN on a single converged network. The solution offers increased scalability (1-40GbE), reliability, advanced services and customization through an open standards approach to lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for enterprises.

Extreme Networks is delivering new edge products, including switches, management and WLAN access points with enhancements to scale for the new challenges and benefits stemming from UC platforms.  The Open Fabric Edge solution meets the strategic imperative of IT to embrace virtualization, mobility and advanced services.

"Traditionally the enterprise edge architecture was about device connectivity, authentication and power over Ethernet, but with its Open Fabric Edge position, Extreme Networks is heightening the return on infrastructure investment with innovations contributing to availability, automation and task enablement that the market has experienced with cloud and data center networks," said Zeus Kerravala, principal analyst and founder of ZK Research. "ExtremeXOS serves as middleware across switches at each layer, brokering intelligence and communications for convergence, mobility and SDN."

Extreme Networks is now certified for operation with market leading collaboration platforms including qualification in the Network Infrastructure Optimization program for Microsoft Lync Server 2010. The network can support every aspect of UC, including VoIP desk phones, softphones, instant messaging and video collaboration. The Open Fabric Edge also offers more flexible and scalable network access architecture, delivering intelligent mobility for Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD).

"Both IT and end-users want the collaboration and flexibility benefits of an integrated and mobile experience, be it for a web conference, a phone call or video." said BJ Haberkorn, Director Product Marketing of Microsoft Lync. "With completion of the Lync qualification, Extreme Networks, with its Open Fabric solutions, has demonstrated a network solution that is highly capable to deliver converged services and keep users and communications connected. This promotes open technologies for convergence."
