Have you ever felt technologically locked in by the choice of your old networking equipment? Time to break the chains.
Mother of dragons Extreme’s Universal Platforms are here!
Your organization needs a reliable, highly-efficient and secure network, but the existing IT infrastructure can no longer keep up with the needs of your business? Sick and tired of ripping and replacing the depreciating equipment every time there’s a need to evolve to a new use case? Terrified about complex per device licensing and different warranties for wired and wireless?
Well, let’s just say you’re not the first. But you’re also not alone.
Tying your capital in a rigid networking solution, no matter how heavily customized it is at the beginning, doesn’t seem like the best idea. That’s how we came up with the idea of Universal Platforms.
Universal Platforms? What’s that?
Extreme’s Universal Platforms combine the power of cloud management with next-generation switches and access points that can support multiple deployment use cases. We think it's what's on the inside that counts, therefore all it takes to move to a different use case is a simple change of the software or feature set!
In other words, Universal Platforms increase flexibility and reduce hardware obsolescence by allowing you to gradually adopt new technologies or change their desired use case by changing the software or feature set and/or management system, while preserving the hardware and even the associated licenses.
Switching between traditional and fabric networking? No problem. Moving between campus and distributed office? Sure. Managing it all on-premises or in the cloud? Why not both?
Pretty neat, isn’t it?
Learn how to expand cloud management to all devices, in the cloud or on-premises:
Keep your head in the clouds and your feet on the ground
Life is seemingly full of some eternal dilemmas like “how to eat the cake and have it, too?” or “how to extend cloud management to third party and non-cloud native devices?”. Unfortunately, we can't help with the former, but we can help with the latter. Meet ExtremeCloud...
