SINGAPORE, 1 APRIL 2009 Extreme Networks has announced new network solutions that extend simplicity and management consistency beyond the wiring closet to the local area network's (LAN) outer edge.
The company that provides converged ethernet networks that support data, voice and video for enterprises and service providers, has come out with ReachNXT 100-8t and EPICenter 7.0. ReachNXT 100-8t is an 8-port enterprise port extender while EPICenter 7.0 is a scalable network management system that simplifies configuration, troubleshooting and status monitoring of IP-based networks.
Taking control of the network
Enterprise architects and users alike have faced difficult challenges when addressing wired ethernet connectivity in conference rooms, visitor areas and similar settings, where network connectivity is often limited or temporary, said a company representative. The new ReachNXT Enterprise port extender, coupled with enhancements to Extreme Networks' EPICenter management suite, allow for complete visibility and control of the entire network.
Extreme Networks lets enterprises take control of the LAN's outer edge with intelligent solutions that helps reduce deployment and connectivity challenges, said Harpreet Chadha, senior director of product management for Extreme Networks.
