Open Fabric Network Architecture Leverages Converged Ethernet

The incorporation of flexible attributes including identity management, power over Ethernet, and connected device automation.

Mobile workers influenced by their experiences as consumers are gaining technical savvy and higher expectations; cloud applications and ubiquitous wireless networks are enabling anytime/anywhere access to enterprise resources. Likewise, IT departments tasked with lowering operating costs are becoming responsible for supporting new and unique lines of business requirements.

Extreme Networks is redefining the campus and enterprise edge by providing a network architecture that for the first time offers the flexibility, scale, and resiliency to support these new requirements and applications, such as Unified Communications (UC), WLAN, Physical Security, and AVB over the same converged Ethernet infrastructure.

The Open Fabric Edge results in lower TCO for the enterprise through optimized CapEx and OpEx, and enables the creation of a network architecture for enterprises, education, government, and other markets composed of best-in-class switches, a single powerful network operating system, and centralized management.
