To address the challenges of the evolving data center landscape, Extreme Networks developed a scalable network infrastructure solution that enables users to migrate from a traditional or "physical" network to a virtualized network, to a location-independent cloud network, without forcing a certain technology, or operating methodology on the user.

Extreme Networks accomplishes this with solutions that leverage applied performance through a flexible network architecture built on a family of fixed and modular switching platforms that enables a flattening of network tiers while providing the network scale to meet the needs of the future. BlackDiamond® and Summit® switching products from Extreme Networks are designed to meet the exacting demands of Enterprises and hosting centers of any scale, which require solutions that combine consistent performance and availability, enhanced security, and simplified management.

BlackDiamond X series switches simplify enterprise and cloud data center networks with the highest throughput performance in the industry. The BlackDiamond X8 supports up to 192 wire speed 40 Gigabit Ethernet or 768 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports in one third of a rack.

BlackDiamond 8800 series switches simplify network architecture. Purpose-built core, aggregation, edge and Data Center modules meet chassis needs across the network. Traditional three-tier architectures are replaced with a streamlined two-tier network that can reduce management overhead, operational complexity and capital expenditures.

The Summit X670 series are high-density, low latency 10 Gigabit Ethernet stackable switches with optional 40 GbE uplinks, for data center, and enterprise core and aggregation deployments.

Summit X650 is the ultimate Top-of-Rack switch for enterprise data center server virtualization and 10 gigabit aggregation with Extreme Networks revolutionary modular operating system, Extreme XOS®.

The Summit X480 series switch is a versatile, high-end Ethernet switch for data center, enterprise aggregation, and Carrier Ethernet deployments. Summit X480 helps optimize application performance for a variety of network deployments with its rich features and high scalability.

Summit X460 switches are highly flexible and scalable, making them ideal aggregation switches or a top-of-rack switch solution offering cross-rack stacking within data centers and longer-reach stacking options among data centers.

Highly flexible and scalable, Summit X450a is an ideal aggregation switch for 1 GbE and demanding Top-of-Rack data center applications.
