Overview:

The award-winning ExtremeWireless Appliance family provides a scalable range of solutions that are ideal for managed WLAN deployments supporting demanding voice/video/data applications. Our wireless appliances are simple to deploy and manage, yet provide advanced functionality to allow organizations to define how wireless voice/video/data traffic is processed without architectural constraints and in accordance with the business needs. The ExtremeWireless Appliance portfolio includes:

  • The C35 supporting up to 250 APs
  • The V2110 supporting up to 1,050 APs (VMware)
  • The C5210 and C5215 supporting up to 2,000 APs
  • The V2110 is available as a virtual appliance for easy deployment in VMware or Microsoft Hyper-V cloud environments. Scalable up to 1,050 APs with VMware, the V2110 extends all the cost savings, hardware independence, and resiliency benefits of data center virtualization to the wireless infrastructure.

    ExtremeWireless appliances enable role-based management for users, devices, and applications with individualized services including quality of service (QoS), call admission control, secure access policies, network access control (NAC), captive portals, rate limiting, multicast, filtering, and traffic forwarding. These services are enabled by the unique and flexible ExtremeWireless Virtual Network Service (VNS) architecture and easily provisioned and managed by an intuitive web interface. Each appliance supports mixed mode deployments of 802.11ac, 802.11n and 802.11a/b/g APs along with the ability to seamlessly roam between wireless appliances and access points, providing scalability and ease of deployment.


    High Scalability

    The ExtremeWireless portfolio supports from a single AP to 2,000 APs per wireless appliance, providing linear scalability from small to large wireless deployments. In addition, wireless appliances can be networked to scale beyond the limits of a single appliance or availability pair to offer a multi-wireless appliance mobility zone. Mobility zones enable seamless roaming across a large number of wireless appliances.

    Fast and Secure Roaming for Seamless Voice and Data Mobility

    ExtremeWireless Appliances manage sessions centrally to ensure fast, secure, and seamless roaming as users and devices move across the campus. Seamless roaming greatly improves productivity by providing true mobility across the enterprise, all transparent to the user.

    High Availability and Self-Healing

    Redundant ExtremeWireless Appliances can be deployed across the network and operate in failover or load sharing mode. Access points can be configured for fast-failover mode to allow configuration and service restoration (in tunnel mode) in less than two seconds, thus enabling user sessions to continue uninterrupted. When switching traffic locally, APs continue to provide service even when the link to the wireless appliance is severed.
