Extreme Networks, Inc. provides wired and wireless network infrastructure equipment, software and services for enterprises, data centers, and service providers. In 2013, the company acquired Enterasys Networks, Inc. (Enterasys), a privately held provider of wired and wireless network infrastructure and security solutions, whereby Enterasys became its wholly-owned subsidiary. Strategy The company’s strategy is to offer open, scalable, secure and connectivity solutions as an alternative to single-sourced, highly proprietary networking equipment from other companies. Key elements of the company’s strategy include providing simple, fast, smart and cost-effective wired and wireless network infrastructure solutions, as well as deliver network-based business and application analytics designed to optimize application delivery to meet the specific demands of various customers; extending switching and routing technology leadership; expanding Wi-Fi technology leadership; delivering unified management across the wired, wireless environment from the data center to the mobile edge; offering network-powered business and application analytics; supporting software defined network (SDN); expanding market penetration by targeting high-growth verticals; utilizing and expanding multiple distribution channels; maintaining and extending its strategic relationships; and providing high-quality customer service and support. Products The company builds its products into vertical markets solutions for converged campus networks with user and device mobility, data center and cloud administrators to virtualize their server and storage over a high-performance Ethernet infrastructure, service providers to provide bandwidth and service level agreements for Carrier Ethernet, 3G and 4G services, and management software that provide visibility, security and intelligent control - all through a single pane of glass. The company provides Layer 2 (L2) extension for data centers through multiple supported technologies that include virtual extensible local area network (LAN), virtual private LAN service, and Pseudo-Wire Emulation, as well as L2 extension with Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE/L2) and Shortest Path Bridging (on the S-Series). In addition to GRE/L2 and Shortest Path Bridging on its S-Series, the company offers traffic optimization for east/west and north/south traffic using Fabric routing and Host routing, respectively. This means the company can enable Virtual Machine mobility using Layer 3 Data Center Interconnect, even without L2 stretch. The company’s mobile backhaul products also support timing functionality, including Synchronous Ethernet and RFC1588, as well as Time Division Multiplexing interfaces for the transport of T1/E1 traffic across an Ethernet infrastructure. The company’s new Audio-Video Bridging capabilities add intelligence within the network to support the convergence of professional audio and video across Ethernet, while its SDN investments provide a foundation for enhanced automation, control and innovation. The company’s hardware and software offerings can be combined into solutions targeted at specific high-growth vertical markets. These include Open Fabric, its architecture for open and scalable next-generation data center deployments that offer investment protection and provide a path to SDN. Extreme Networks' All Ethernet Open Fabric is anchored by the company’s BlackDiamond BDX switch, its Summit top-of-rack data center switches, NetSight management, and where required, products from technology partners. In the campus, its Intelligent Mobile Edge offering combines its Summit edge virtual chassis switches, its WLAN access point and controller portfolio, and its NetSight management platform offering user and device identity awareness. Modular Ethernet Switching Systems: The company’s Black Diamond products deliver modular or chassis-based Ethernet connectivity solutions for enterprises, data centers and service providers. These products have a range of management and line cards that allow its customers to flexibly configure and re-purpose the systems to meet specific needs. The company’s Black Dia
