Key Capabilities 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 Analytics/ AI/ML-driven insights

Rich application telemetry combined with ExtremeAnalytics provide comprehensive network and application analytics. With on-going integration into ExtremeCloud IQ, powerful AI/ML-based insights offer the ability to fine-tuning the network, before issues become service impacting.

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. 

Universal Platforms

Avoid technology lock in and evolve to new deployment models by simply changing the software while reusing your existing hardware. Extend the life of your switches by re-deploying them as needed.

Uncover the Power of Universal Platforms

Extreme’s Universal Platforms deliver unparalleled flexibility and investment protection by being able to change deployment models and use cases through software only.

With simplified licensing, warranty and top-ranked services and support, Universal Platforms also simplify your overall deployment experience.
