Fabric Attach Network Automation

Published 18 Feb 2021
One of the key benefits of Extreme Fabric Connect (an enhanced implementation of IEEE 802.1Q Shortest Path Bridging) is simplified operations by replacing current hop-by-hop provisioning practices with edge only provisioning. Fabric Connect delivers a “Zero-Touch-Core” that virtually eliminates the chance of core network misconfiguration. Extreme Fabric Attach further extends the zero-touch core to the wiring closet by enabling attachment to Fabric Connect virtual services on switches that do not support SPB. Fabric Attach provides automated service creation and attachment for Fabric Attach capable network elements as well as users and IoT devices, either directly on a switch or centrally via RADIUS authentication.
