Delivering voice-class availability, high-density Power over Ethernet (PoE), Gigabit Ethernet, and 10 Gigabit Ethernet wherever it’s needed.

Enterprise IT managers have limited time or resources to deal with overly complex, specialized network infrastructure solutions. 8000 Series switches from Extreme Networks simplify the architecture. Purpose-built core, aggregation, edge and data center modules can meet your chassis needs across the network. Traditional three-tier architectures can be replaced with a streamlined two-tier network that reduces management overhead, operational complexity, and capital expenditures.

8000 Series switches deliver voice-class availability, high-density Power over Ethernet (PoE), Gigabit Ethernet, and 10 Gigabit Ethernet wherever it’s needed. They serve well as a high-performance enterprise core. The non-blocking ports interconnect thousands of servers for high-performance cluster computing (HPCC) and data center applications. A full range of Layers 2 – 4 features for IPv4 and IPv6 allow the aggregation of high-speed connections, eliminating bottlenecks between edge and core. The 8000 Series fits well at the edge of the most demanding enterprises switching Voice-over-IP (VoIP), video, wireless, and data traffic.
