New Smart OmniEdge Solution Brings Intelligence, Adaptability and Security to Campus and Distributed Environments via On-Premise Deployments or As-a-Service

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The convergence of technology, users and devices at the network edge, coupled with insatiable demand for secure, reliable connectivity, has created unprecedented complexity for enterprise IT teams that need to manage it all. To help provide the simplicity and intelligence today's businesses require, Extreme Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR) today announced Smart OmniEdge, a powerful artificial intelligence (AI)- enabled network edge solution that offers enterprises the ability to deliver an exceptional customer-driven experience with pervasive intelligence, business adaptability and intrinsic security to accelerate their digital transformation.

Extreme Networks' Smart OmniEdge solution is comprised of a secure, unified wired/wireless infrastructure and AI-driven management capabilities, accessible through a single pane of glass. The solution provides common visibility, policy and authentication services across the entire infrastructure. Purpose built to address the growth of users and internet of things (IoT) devices, Smart OmniEdge uniquely delivers a consistent customer-driven experience across diverse network environments, via flexibility of on-premise deployment or as-a-service offering. The resulting network and insights give customers the agility required to grow and adapt quickly as their business needs change, while protecting their investments.

The Extreme Networks Smart OmniEdge solution family includes Extreme's leading wired, wireless, network management, cloud, analytics and security capabilities. New technologies being introduced today are designed specifically to enhance the edge network experience, and include:

  • ExtremeAI for Smart OmniEdge – A powerful, hosted application that augments human intelligence with proactive artificial intelligence to simplify the complex task of RF management. The solution uses machine learning to collect network analytics, device statistics, connection rates, and user and application experience characteristics. This enables the network to continuously learn and adapt to a customer's clients and applications accessing the Wi-Fi network.
  • ExtremeCloud Appliance – Designed for customers that love the simplicity of the ExtremeCloud solution and want an on-premise solution. ExtremeCloud Appliance delivers cloud-like licensing and management with tightly integrated services and features on-premise deployments require. ExtremeCloud Appliance is container ready for operational expansion. It is also available as a virtual machine (VM) for customers that have their own private cloud services.
  • Extreme Extended Edge Switching – An innovative technology that collapses multiple network layers into a single logical switch, enhancing the intelligence of edge switches, while flattening the network and eliminating deployment complexity. The result is a simplified operational model that reduces costs.
  • Extreme Defender for IoT – A comprehensive security solution that simplifies onboarding and securing of wired IoT devices. The Defender for IoT application can be deployed on the ExtremeCloud Appliance in any form factor, and used to help ensure secure access of IoT devices plugged into the wall jack AP or the Extreme Defender Adaptor. The solution provides centralized visibility and management, enabling IT to analyze traffic flows and pinpoint anomalies. The solution works with the Extreme Fabric Connect solution or over third-party networks to protect IoT devices, and is ideal for healthcare environments.

Smart OmniEdge incorporates pervasive intelligence throughout the solution to provide mobile users with an exceptional experience and drive business and operational transformation. The solution is agile and business adaptive, allowing networks to quickly transform in lockstep with the businesses that rely on them using any combination of solutions to meet their business needs today, and in the future, without rip and replace, or retraining.

As the network edge has become the primary access for users, devices and IoT, it has also become an attack surface. Smart OmniEdge is intrinsically secure, from the Wi-Fi RF, access point and Ethernet switches which extend through the campus to the data center, with automated compliance checks, threat detection, analytics and mitigation from the time of IoT device onboarding until completion of the user's session.
