Extreme Networks, Inc. announced further expansion of its Intelligent Mobile Edge (IME) Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) campus solution. The Company is making mobility more affordable with a new line of 802.11n wireless LAN access points complementing its sophisticated identity management, ease of user and device onboarding, and Smart RF® for automated site deployment of wireless LANs. The solution is supported by ExtremeXOS®, a single modular software platform supporting all edge and core network switches.

Extreme Networks new solution helps mobilise businesses and schools with a combination of hardware and software intelligence easing the burden of the BYOD movement. Extreme Networks IME is available with expanded offerings to help enterprises respond to the proliferation of devices and wireless services across campus networks. Enterprises require expanded choices and more affordable solutions to deploy next-generation 802.11n wireless technology without compromising mobility features and performance.

The key benefits of Extreme Networks IME include a converged data plane based on the Motorola WiNG 5 architecture. The system can increase the performance of wireless services compared to traditional hub and spoke WLAN systems by removing traditional bottlenecks. Extreme Networks smart identity management brings user, device and location awareness to network administrators, so that mobile users are tracked and accounted for without manual intervention.

Extreme Networks new wireless APs serve to lower the cost of deploying wireless networks and meet the growing demands of increased wireless traffic with intelligence and independence. The SmartRF system for APs helps ensure uninterrupted user access by dynamically sensing weak of failing signals, securely moving users to alternate APs and automatically boosting signal power to fill in coverage gaps.
