Key Benefits of ExtremeSwitching

Fabric-Enabled

As a leader in fabric networking, Extreme offers a flexible portfolio of Ethernet and IP fabric solutions. Whether you are transforming your campus, data center, metro, or WAN, our fabric technologies ensure a faster, more flexible, and more secure foundation for your business.

Dynamic Role–based Policies

Extreme Switches support a common highly-scalable policy mechanism across wired and wireless devices. These policies are centrally defined but locally enforced at the switch. These policies travel with the user, device, and application as they move through the network.

Application Hosting

Extreme Switches can run onboard applications alongside the switch OS – all without impacting performance. This can help provide network insight through on-board analytics applications and even enable new network applications without the need for a separate hardware device. 

Rich Telemetry and Analytics

Rich application telemetry combined with ExtremeAnalytics provide comprehensive network and application analytics. Eliminate shadow IT, improve security, and enable faster, more efficient network remediation with full layer 2-7 visibility.

Secure Link Encryption

Extreme switches help secure your traffic with support for IEEE 802.1AE MACsec across our various switch platforms. MACsec is a hop-by-hop security capability which encrypts/ decrypts packets between connected switches or devices. 

Extended Edge Switching

Extended Edge Switching enables you to scale out your campus access ports in a simple and cost-effective way. Using a combination of controller bridges with low cost access devices, a single logical switch architecture can be created to simplify both deployment and operations.

X435 Series – Economical Connectivity Without Compromise

The ExtremeSwitching X435 Series deliver role-based policy enforcement, comprehensive security services, and advanced PoE while remaining economical for cost-conscious enterprises looking for a value-based edge solution.
