FRAMINGHAM (03/26/2004) - Extreme Networks Inc., a global networking leader, provides a family of Ethernet switching solutions that deliver greatly improved performance for applications and services. Extreme's Unified Access (UA) strategy addresses enterprises that have been waiting to deploy a single, secure and seamless network for both wired and wireless network access, rather than operating two separate, parallel networks. UA delivers versatile edge access to wired, wireless, telephony, and simple networked devices without compromising security, mobility or management.
Extreme's UA capabilities are available on fixed configuration and modular switches, and its EPICenter(tm) management suite. Now customers can benefit from the proven capabilities of Extreme's award-winning solutions coupled with Power over Ethernet and crucial wireless connectivity features. Organizations can easily deploy and manage networks consisting of any combination of stationary users, VoIP phones, simple devices, and roaming users.
Versatility is the essential UA ingredient. A comprehensive set of authentication and mobility features supports everything from mobile users to guests to simple devices, while encryption options deliver high-performance support for legacy and leading-edge applications. Furthermore, built-in rogue access point and intrusion detection capacities address critical enterprise concerns regarding network integrity. Extreme's extensive core-to-edge QoS support delivers superior voice over IP capabilities for wired and wireless handsets.
