Extreme Networks Inc. has expanded its line of enterprise edge networking solutions with the launch of a family of value-based Gigabit Ethernet fixed switching solutions. The company's Ethernet Access Switches (EAS) deliver Layer 2 connectivity for the access layer of the Enterprise network in environments where wired and wireless devices and users must co-exist.

IT managers face the challenge of dealing with the growth of network traffic, while containing their costs and minimising disruption. They need a mix of both high end switches and cost optimised solutions that meet the requirements of Layer 2 and Layer 3 switching.

The EAS family of Gigabit switches is available in both PoE Plus and non-PoE 24-port models, aimed at delivering versatility and cost effectiveness for network access. These purpose-built Layer 2 switches feature standards-based PoE Plus, Quality of Service and critical support for devices that require a wired connection such as VoIP phones, security cameras and WLAN access points. At the access layer, traffic from the EAS family of switches and Extreme Networks' Altitude Wireless LAN access points is forwarded to the advanced ExtremeXOS edge, extending the benefits of sophisticated identity management for wired and wireless and complementing Extreme Networks end-to-end intelligence and automation portfolio.

The EAS family of switches is already available in Singapore.
