Extreme’s Universal Platforms combine the power of cloud management with next-generation switches and access points that can support multiple deployment use cases through a simple change of the software or feature set.
Universal Platforms increase flexibility and reduce hardware obsolescence by allowing customers to gradually adopt new technologies or change their desired use case by changing the software or feature set and/or management system, while preserving the hardware and even the associated licenses.
With Universal, gone are the days of complex licensing and confusing warranty offers! Instead, licensing is poolable and portable, warranty is clear and consistent, and services and support is fully in-sourced and top ranked.
