Extreme Networks announced Extreme Elements, a combination of software, hardware and services that can be mixed and matched to create customized solutions for enterprises in every industry.

Extreme Elements are components of Extreme's Smart OmniEdge, Automated Campus and Agile Data Center solutions – underpinned by human and machine intelligence – that give customers the building blocks they need to create autonomous networks capable of learning and self-correcting, and ultimately an autonomous enterprise where architecture, automation, and human intelligence operate in harmony. Unlike other networking architectures, Extreme Elements are intrinsically secure, and offer multi-vendor support in an open and standards-based ecosystem. Analytics, automation, security and IoT tools are the glue that bring distinct elements together, and include:

- Extreme Management Center: Network management software gives IT centralized management and end-to-end visibility, ensuring smooth operations and fast problem resolution.

- ExtremeAI Security: New application leverages machine learning and artificial intelligence to deliver deep visibility and detection of malicious traffic, real-time monitoring of IoT devices for behavioral anomalies and automated remediation.

- Extreme Workflow Composer: Network orchestrator allows organizations to implement automation at their own pace with turnkey, customizable or do-it-yourself network workflow automation, all supported in multi-vendor network environments.

- Extreme Software-Driven Infrastructure: State-of-the-art edge, campus and data center solutions enhanced with next-generation x86-based intelligent appliances, including the ExtremeCloud Appliance™, ExtremeSwitching™ X465 premium, stackable multi-rate gigabit Ethernet switch and the forthcoming ExtremeAccess platform — all of which offer container support to deliver computing power right to where you need it.

- ExtremeAnalytics: Network and application analytics software enables IT to understand which applications are running on the network, who is using them and the response time for each application so they can quickly detect anomalies and optimize application performance, from the edge to the data center and into the multi-cloud.

- Defender for IoT: Endpoint security solution empowers enterprises to securely deploy unsecured IoT devices, while isolating them from other services. Defender for IoT can be deployed on any network and is so easy to use even non-technical staff at schools, hospitals, retailers and hospitality venues can use it to isolate and protect both wired and wireless IoT devices from cyberattacks.

Software and hardware Elements are complemented by a robust portfolio of services and support provided by Extreme via its Professional Services organization and its global partner community, and underscored by a collaborative, customer-driven approach. Anything is possible with the right combination of Elements.
