Home SDNExtreme Networks Software-Defined Networking — Extreme Networks ExtremeControl

Extreme Networks ExtremeControl is a complete standards-based, multi-vendor interoperable pre-connect and post-connect Access Control solution for wired and wireless LAN and VPN users. Using the ExtremeControl Gateway appliances and/or Virtual Appliance with Control Center management configuration and reporting software, IT administrators can deploy a leading-edge NAC solution to ensure only the right users have access to the right information from the right place at the right time including time of day, location, authentication types, device and OS type, and end system and user groups. NAC is a complete standards-based, multi-vendor interoperable pre-connect and post-connect NAC for LAN and VPN users. Using Extreme Networks NAC Gateway appliances and/or NAC Gateway Virtual Appliance with NetSight NAC management configuration and reporting software, IT administrators can deploy a NAC solution to ensure only the right users have access to the right information from the right place at the right time.

NetSight is the heart of the OneFabric Control Center family of management and security solutions. NetSight is a management system that provides wired/wireless visibility and control from the data center to the mobile edge. The intelligence, automation, and integration of your management software enable the IT organization to optimize the efficiency of network operations and reduce total cost of ownership. NetSight provides centralized visibility and granular control of enterprise network resources. NetSight is distinctive for granularity that reaches beyond ports and VLANs down to individual users, applications, and protocols. No matter how many moves, adds, or changes occur in your environment, NetSight keeps everything in view and under control through role-based access controls. One click can equal a thousand actions when you manage your network with Extreme Networks. NetSight can even manage beyond Extreme Networks switching, routing, and wireless hardware to deliver standards-based control of other vendors’ network equipment.

Extreme Networks Data Center Connect

Extreme Networks brings simplicity, agility, and optimized performance to your most strategic business asset. The data center is critically important to business operations in the enterprise, but often organizations have difficulty leveraging their data centers as a strategic business asset. OneFabric data center solution simplifies complex data center processes, makes them more agile with the SDN-based integration of intelligent services, increases the utilization to make them more efficient, allows IT to optimize their performance while providing visibility and control, and the result is less time and money spent operating your data center and more time spent making your data center work for you. Coordinates the automated assignment of virtual machines (VMs) within both the virtual and physical network fabrics. The use of granular policies, combined with Extreme Networks flow-based switching, helps users realize the goals of high availability and reliable delivery.

Extreme Networks OneController

The Extreme Networks ExtremeControl solution accelerates application innovation and reduces risks for the entire network, including wireless, campus and data center. ExtremeControl does this through a modular, open and standards-based development environment that integrates with existing infrastructure and avoids architecture lock-in. OneController leverages the OpenDaylight framework to provide an open and standards-based SDN Controller providing simple, fast, and smart automation and orchestration for your network. It forms the basis of Extreme Networks’ evolutionary SDN Platform for innovation which allows you to choose best-of-breed products and solutions. OneController tightly integrates with existing and multi-vendor hardware and software network infrastructure, preserving customer investments and avoiding lock-in. Investment protection is ensured through backward compatibility in multi-vendor networks with support for both the OpenFlow standard as well as other open APIs.
