Requirements are evolving in today's complex environment, and businesses must often select from different operating systems to boost capabilities, improve product usability, or extend useful lifespan.
FREMONT, CA: Cloud-driven network company, Extreme Networks announced the launch of universal platforms for its switching and wireless portfolios. The new platforms enable simplified ordering, licensing, and warranty processes and reduced complexity and versatile operations, creating a more effortless experience for patrons. Extreme is the only networking vendor offering universal wired and wireless platforms for enterprise-class infrastructure.
"For those companies proactively seeking operational efficiencies, choice, and suppleness, Extreme continues to make a path forward through differentiated offerings like our universal wired and wireless platforms. Universal platforms combined with ExtremeCloud IQ and our world-class service are the key enablers of a simple experience. Our customers demand flexibility and selection for their investment in an intelligent infrastructure and universal platforms allow us to fulfill those demands while improving experience, reducing complexity, and saving our customers money," said Nabil Bukhari, Chief Product Officer and Chief Technology Officer, Extreme Networks.
Requirements are evolving in today's complex environment, and businesses must often select from different operating systems to boost capabilities, improve product usability, or extend useful lifespan. With legacy products, this typically means a rip and replace. However, universal platforms from Extreme simplify the whole process. Identical platforms can run multiple Extreme operating systems, providing flexibility and selection while minimizing the overall cost of ownership.
Customers of the new ExtremeSwitching 5520 Series and ExtremeWireless AP300C, and AP400C Series wireless access points (APs) can choose the excellent OS for their business needs and activate it via automated, zero-touch deployment. They will do that through ExtremeCloud IQ, the industry's most advanced end-to-end cloud management platform, or manually through a customized on-premises deployment. Offering choice simplifies use and deployment and buying and operations, as there's only one hardware/software SKU to order. That hardware is often applied to multiple use cases.
"We are known as a leader in IT and network infrastructure, and it is important to us to provide our customers with technology that can perform complex tasks and analyze massive data sets but at the same time feel easy to use and implement. As a partner of Extreme, we are excited about the concept of universal hardware. This flexible approach to hardware provisioning will save time and energy for our customers and future proof their investments. Those who have been part of the beta test of universal hardware are already indicating how beneficial this increased flexibility can be." said Wim Coenen, CTO, Conscia Netherlands.
