BlackDiamond 8800 Switch Series simplify the enterprise network

Enterprise IT managers have limited time or resources to deal with overly complex, specialized network infrastructure solutions. BlackDiamond 8800 series switches from Extreme Networks simplify the architecture. Purpose-built core, aggregation, edge and Data Center modules can meet your chassis needs across the network. Traditional three-tier architectures can be replaced with a streamlined two-tier network that reduces management overhead, operational complexity and capital expenditures.
BlackDiamond 8800 series switches deliver voice-class availability, high-density Power over Ethernet (PoE), Gigabit Ethernet, and 10 Gigabit Ethernet wherever it's needed. They serve well as a high-performance Enterprise core. The non-blocking ports interconnect thousands of servers for High Performance Cluster Computing (HPCC) and data center applications. A full range of Layers 2 - 4 features for IPv4 and IPv6 allow the aggregation of high-speed connections, eliminating bottlenecks between edge and core. BlackDiamond 8800 fits well at the edge of the most demanding enterprises switching Voice-over-IP (VoIP), video, wireless and data traffic.

• Cost-effective edge switch for the wiring closet
• High-density PoE edge switch for integrated wired, wireless and IP Telephony
• Single switch network solution that scales from small to medium to large deployments
• High density Gigabit or 10 Gigabit Ethernet aggregation switch
• Interconnect switch providing low-latency connections for HPCC and data center

Summit Advanced Switch Series capable of stacking (SummitStack)

Extreme Networks offers a number of switches for aggregation and edge applications, many of which are capable of stacking with SummitStack technology. There are several options available to meet the demanding requirements of your network.
Within the range of the Summit product line, they offer switches designed to support the evolving applications of a converged network with exceptional Quality of Service, low latency, resiliency, line rate performance and Power over Ethernet (PoE). Summit switches offer various critical capabilities, from Top-of-Rack server aggregation switch, processing packets between core and edge switches, providing high availability, control and simplified management of your entire network with ExtremeXOS, to providing high density gigabit PoE to the desktop in a network running ExtremeXOS from the core to the edge, including 10/100 Layer 2/Layer 3 intelligent switching for advanced IP services.
Summit switches are designed to meet the performance and availability requirements of today’s high-performance converged networks.

• Universal Port dynamic port configuration for IP Telephony and security
• IPv4/IPv6 unicast and multicast routing and intelligent Layer 2 switching
• ExtremeXOS operating system
• ExtremeXOS scripting capability to automate switch configuration
