Extreme's Fabric Connect
Cut Costs, While Improving Security and Agility with a Virtual Network Solution
Be More Agile
Create a dynamic environment where new or changed services can be implemented on the fly—taking only minutes instead of days, weeks, or months.
With reported 11x faster time to service, Extreme’s Fabric Connect offers edge only provisioning – eliminating time consuming and risky hop by hop provisioning.
Extreme’s Fabric Connect supports integrated Layer 2, Layer 3, IP routing, and IP multicast services with a single next-generation technology. Migrate away from complex legacy protocol overlays (STP RIP, OSPF, BGP, PIM, etc) to take advantage of faster recovery times and simplified management and troubleshooting.
Improve Network Uptime
Never drop a VoIP call or lose a video call again. Gain sub-second recoveries for all Layer 2, Layer 3, IP routing, and IP multicast services. See a significant improvement over conventional Spanning Tree/OSPF-based networks, as well as a massive improvement over average recovery times in PIM-based Multicast networks.
Contain breaches and protect yourself against would-be-hackers
Extreme’s unique hyper-segmentation capabilities create dead ends for hackers. Through the creation of isolated and secure end to end network segments, if a single segment of the network is attacked, hyper-segmentation prevents uncontrolled access everywhere. Furthermore, our native stealth capabilities ensure that the network topology remains hidden. For would be hackers – what you can’t see, you can’t attack. Lastly the elasticity of our solution means services are created and also retracted dynamically based on who or what is connecting to the network, eliminating potential back door entry points.
Reduce Operating Costs with Network Fabric
Put money back in your pocket. Our simplified network virtualization solution eliminates cumbersome manual tasks, reducing IT operating expenses. High-priority change requests can be made easily at the network edge rather than during off hours. Plus, a single-technology network that reduces complex provisioning of protocol overlays simplifies management and troubleshooting.
Take advantage of 28x more scalable IP Multicast
Extreme’s Fabric Connect offers a scalable, reliable and efficient way of supporting IP Multicast Routing, without the onerous requirement of configuring, deploying, and maintaining a complex overlay such as PIM.Deploy applications such as IPTV, IP video surveillance, desktop imaging and more with greater ease, higher performance and greater scale with this innovative technology.
