SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Continuing its leadership in Ethernet networking, Extreme Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR) is demonstrating maximum Ethernet scalabilty at next month's Networld+Interop show. Extreme Networks is using its new 10 Gigabit Ethernet module for its BlackDiamond(R) chassis switch to power the expansive show network of over 8,000 nodes. The Interop Event Net (eNet) is the world's largest short-term network and connects the entire conference -- exhibitors, conferences, meeting rooms and attendee messaging centers. Extreme Networks' 10 Gigabit Ethernet solution combines maximum Ethernet scalability with the industry's most advanced bandwidth management, traffic shaping and Policy-based Quality of Service (QoS) features to provide the most effective application and service infrastructure. As large enterprises and metro service providers dramatically increase available bandwidth by deploying 10 Gigabit Ethernet technology, the applications and services load placed on the network increases as well. Extreme Networks' sophisticated QoS capabilities allow network managers to tailor the flow of network traffic to best meet the business needs of an organization. "Our ability to demonstrate maximum Ethernet scalability enables Extreme Networks to showcase its blueprint for the future of networks," said Paul De Zan, vice president of corporate marketing, Extreme Networks. "With our unique expertise in Ethernet technology, we are going further than just increased bandwidth with our 10GigE solution. Without flexible and powerful QoS capabilities, 10GigE is really just a bandwidth firehose -- and that's not compatible with the reality of network operations and management today. From the beginning of our 10GigE program, we've planned a complete solution, one that incorporates all of the industry-leading traffic management features that our customers have come to expect from Extreme Networks. We're very excited to be demonstrating our 10GigE solution at the industry's most prestigious event." Extreme Networks Inc.
