Extreme Networks, Inc., together with its subsidiaries, provides wired and wireless network infrastructure equipment, software and services for enterprises, data centers, and service providers. Products The company builds its products into vertical markets solutions for converged campus networks with user and device mobility, data center and cloud administrators to virtualize their server and storage through an Ethernet infrastructure, service providers to provide bandwidth and service level agreements for Carrier Ethernet, 3G and 4G services, and management software that provide visibility, security and intelligent control - all through a single pane of glass. Resilient High Performance Networking: The company offers a Quality of Service (QoS) solution that allows network operators to configure bandwidth for mission critical applications and in doing so control the overall experience and the service-level of the communication flows. The company has experience with communication quality controls, starting with its introduction to the market of the first QoS controls for Ethernet to the new Data Center Bridging protocols for 'lossless' Ethernet that enables traditional storage networks to converge over a common Ethernet infrastructure. The company provides Layer 2 (L2) extension for data centers through multiple supported technologies that include Virtual Extensible LAN (Local Area Network), Virtual Private LAN Service, and Pseudo-Wire Emulation, as well as Layer 2 extension with Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE/L2) and SPB (Shortest Path Bridging) (on the S-Series). In addition to GRE/L2 and SPB on the company’s S-Series, it offers traffic optimization for east/west and north/south traffic using Fabric routing and Host routing, respectively. This means that the company could enable Virtual Machine mobility using Layer 3 Data Center Interconnect, even without L2 stretch. The company’s mobile backhaul products also support timing functionality, including Synchronous Ethernet and RFC1588, as well as time division multiplexing interfaces for the transport of T1/E1 traffic across an Ethernet infrastructure. Intelligence: CLEAR-Flow, the company’s wire-speed security rules engine, helps detect and mitigate traffic anomalies, including denial of service attacks. NetSight provides centralized visibility and granular control of enterprise network resources end to end, to manage, automate and report on the entire network through a single interface. Network Access Control (NAC)/ MobileIAM and Purview provide visibility and policy for multi-vendor environments, providing detailed context that correlates users with their devices, applications, locations and other attributes. These products provide network insight and analytics, which could be used for network optimization, improved security and smarter business decisions. The company’s new Audio-Video Bridging capabilities add intelligence within the network to support the convergence of professional audio and video across Ethernet, while its SDN (software defined network) investments provide a foundation for improved automation, control and innovation. Operational Simplicity: The company provides a unified management system for the entire network providing management across all network segments and devices, making information technology (IT) operations more efficient and simpler. NetSight could even manage beyond Extreme Networks switching, routing, and wireless hardware to deliver standards-based control of other vendors’ network equipment. Vertical Market Solutions: The company’s software and services-led networking solution offerings are solutions targeted at specific high-growth vertical markets. These include Open Fabric, its architecture for open next-generation data center deployments that offer investment protection and provide a path to SDN. The company’s All Ethernet Open Fabric is anchored by its BlackDiamond BDX switch, its Summit top-of-rack data center switches, NetSight management, and where required, products from technology partners. In the campus, the company’s Intelligent Mobile Edge offering combines its Summit edge virtual chassis switches,
