Extreme Networks introduced a suite of new solutions, creating new ways for customers to drive better outcomes from their networks in the era of the Infinite Enterprise.

The company has extended its ExtremeCloud portfolio to include new SD-WAN and AIOps with digital twin capabilities – enabling customers to deliver secure connectivity at the edge of the network, speed cloud deployments and uncover actionable insights – all from within a single platform.

ExtremeCloud SD-WAN: As work from anywhere models are becoming the standard, organizations strive to find a way to modernize both branch and remote networks to securely connect applications in the cloud. With Extreme’s new SD-WAN offering, enterprises can:

- Simplify management by enabling customers to manage wired, wireless and SD-WAN from a single platform.

- Enhance security by leveraging a range of options from built-in firewall to advanced cloud security using EdgeSentry (powered by Check Point).

- Improve application performance optimizing more than 4,000 apps and dynamically routing traffic to ensure quality experiences for critical applications like voice and video.

- Improve TCO via a simple, cost-effective subscription licensing model inclusive of hardware, software, support and customer success.

ExtremeCloud IQ CoPilot AIOps solution is now available with several new features designed to improve deployment and day-to-day operations, while reducing business risk.

- Simplify staging, validation and deployment of switches and access points from the cloud with new digital twin capabilities. Eliminate weeks or months associated with hardware deployments by first creating a digital twin to ensure smooth roll outs.

- Reduce mean time to resolution leveraging explainable AI/ML to distinguish network anomalies and help IT and network administrators see, verify and trust proactive insights.

- Efficiently use IT resources with features like automated ticketing, which does not require customer action.

- Manage the network from any device using ExtremeCloud IQ Companion. IT teams can flexibly manage operations and gain real-time visibility into the network, regardless of location or device.

Extreme also introduced the 5720 Universal Switch, the latest in a series of high-performance, feature-rich wired switches for enterprise deployments. Benefits include:

- Support for multiple deployment use cases makes it easy for customers to run their networking operating system of choice, while preserving hardware and associated licenses.

- Automate network operations, streamline network provisioning and enhance security as a result of support for Extreme’s Fabric Connect™.

Nabil Bukhari, CTO and CPO, Extreme Networks, said: “Our new suite of solutions will better equip our customers to go beyond cloud management and start unlocking critical insights that make the network a strategic asset. We’re bringing security and connectivity together and making it simple to manage, deploy and scale to meet the ever-evolving needs brought on by the Infinite Enterprise. We’ve layered features into our cloud solution that will drive meaningful business impact and ROI by simplifying operations, removing complexity and reducing risk.”
