Software, Hardware and Services Can Be Mixed and Matched to Create Customized Solutions that Elevate the End-User Experience
SAN JOSE, Calif., May 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The network is the gateway to digital transformation, yet many organizations are inhibited by rigid and restrictive technology that prevents true innovation and growth. Future-forward enterprises are abandoning monolithic, one-size-fits-all networking products in favor of flexible solutions built and packaged for the specific needs in their business. Recognizing this, Extreme Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR) today announced Extreme Elements™, a combination of software, hardware and services that can be mixed and matched to create customized solutions for enterprises in every industry.
Extreme Elements are components of Extreme’s Smart OmniEdge™, Automated Campus™ and Agile Data Center™ solutions – underpinned by human and machine intelligence – that give customers the building blocks they need to create autonomous networks capable of learning and self-correcting, and ultimately an autonomous enterprise where architecture, automation, and human intelligence operate in harmony. Unlike other networking architectures, Extreme Elements are intrinsically secure, and offer multi-vendor support in an open and standards-based ecosystem. Analytics, automation, security and IoT tools are the glue that bring distinct elements together, and include:
Software and hardware Elements are complemented by a robust portfolio of services and support provided by Extreme via its Professional Services organization and its global partner community, and underscored by a collaborative, customer-driven approach. Anything is possible with the right combination of Elements.
Extreme Elements are on display in full-force at the Extreme Connect User Conference this week in Nashville, Tennessee. For more details, click here.
Nabil Bukhari, Executive Vice President, Products, Extreme Networks
“For too long, networking vendors have allowed infrastructure to become a roadblock to customers’ most innovative ambitions. We’re introducing a powerful, self-driving network, fueled by Extreme Elements, that will allow enterprises to finally pursue the bold transformation projects they always wanted to. Leveraging our deep expertise in advanced, agile networking, and combining it with artificial intelligence and automation, we’re giving our customers the tools they need to deliver extraordinary human experiences. It’s a new era of networking.”
Pierre-André Rulmont, Vice President, Information Systems, Brussels Intercommunal Transport Company / Société des Transports Intercommunaux de Bruxelles (STIB)
“The number of people using public transportation in Brussels is constantly rising, making it a real challenge for our systems to scale and for our people to manage operations during peak periods. With Extreme Elements such as Extreme Fabric Connect, we’ve integrated manual and automated processes to build a robust, scalable video surveillance network – called Mission Critical Network – to transport 1000’s of multicast video streams and support up to 15,000 IP cameras to control the traffic and ensure public safety. Ultimately, we’ve enabled real-time automated control of metro traffic, improving system uptime for our customers and freeing up IT resources to focus on creating new services.”
Andrew Grimm, Vice President of Information Technology, Bowen Center
“From the staff we employ to the innovative projects like telemedicine we’re piloting, Bowen Center is a different kind of healthcare provider, and we need a different kind of network — one that fits us. A one-size-fits-all networking solution simply doesn’t cut it. By combining a range of Extreme Elements that suit our specific needs, we can focus less on network management and more on providing the best and most secure patient care possible.”
Bob Laliberte, Practice Director and Senior Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group
“Modern enterprises face a complex set of issues – from IoT proliferation to sophisticated security threats to data overload. Traditional networking technologies haven’t helped businesses navigate these issues – they’ve exacerbated them. Extreme’s decision to embrace automation and artificial intelligence is an important step for optimizing network environments for current and future needs. As enterprises spanning all industries take the next step in their digital transformation journeys, it will require a mix of services, software, hardware and automation solutions. Extreme recognizes this reality and Elements provides organizations a path to transformation and autonomous networking.”
