Extreme to expand networking offering with Broadcom

Extreme Networks has announced it has selected Broadcom’s networking products to power its extensive family of access, edge, and campus networking solutions. Extreme will give enterprise customers and partners powerful security, segmentation, resiliency, policy, telemetry, and performance advantages as they pursue cloud-driven digital transformation with the industry’s most simple, secure, and intelligent campus architecture.

Broadcom networking chipsets and programmable silicon can be found everywhere from client to edge to data centre. Broadcom ships millions of switches into enterprise networks each year and has shipped over 100 million Wi-Fi 6 chips in mobile phones and access points around the world to date.

New Extreme hardware products, from the edge to the data centre, will be built with Broadcom chips. As a member of Broadcom’s early access and support program, Extreme has priority access to Broadcom testing, technology, and training. This early access enables Extreme to introduce next-generation networking solutions to the market quickly, providing its customers and partners with a definitive competitive advantage.

Extreme and Broadcom are collaborating on a validated campus networking design that will be available later this year. With Extreme Elements™, enterprises can tailor their network to specific business goals and realize the power of Extreme products with Broadcom technology.

Ed Meyercord, President and Chief Executive Officer, Extreme Networks commented “Broadcom’s silicon and expanded suite of software solutions are second to none in our industry. For Broadcom to select Extreme as a recommended networking provider for enterprise customers speaks volumes about the superior quality and ease of use of our rapidly evolving cloud-driven solutions. All enterprise customers should take note of this.”
