SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Extreme Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR) today announced that it has joined with the new Carrier Ethernet Ecosystem spearheaded by Nortel. The Ecosystem’s goal is to focus on the interoperability necessary to help carriers to meet the explosion in demand on metro area networks from video, VoIP and other real-time communications. As part of this, the Ecosystem will focus on Provider Backbone Bridging Traffic Engineering (PBB-TE), which provides scalability and economic enhancements to Ethernet also known as Provider Backbone Transport.

“We are excited to be a part of the Carrier Ethernet Ecosystem and to work within this framework to accelerate the adoption of PBT-enabled carrier solutions,” said Peter Lunk, director of service provider marketing for Extreme Networks®. “The PBT interoperability demonstration between Extreme and Nortel scheduled at NXTcomm in Chicago this week is a great example of what we can get done by working together.”
