Extreme BlackDiamond 8800 Series
Enterprise IT managers have limited time or resources to deal with overly complex, specialized network infrastructure solutions. BlackDiamond® 8800 series switches from Extreme Networks® simplify the architecture. Purpose-built core, aggregation, edge and Data Center modules can meet your chassis needs across the network. Traditional three-tier architectures can be replaced with a streamlined two-tier network that reduces management overhead, operational complexity and capital expenditures. BlackDiamond 8800 series switches deliver voice-class availability, high-density Power over Ethernet (PoE), Gigabit Ethernet, and 10 Gigabit Ethernet wherever it’s needed. They serve well as a high-performance Enterprise core. The non-blocking ports interconnect thousands of servers for High Performance Cluster Computing (HPCC) and data center applications. A full range of Layers 2 - 4 features for IPv4 and IPv6 allow the aggregation of high-speed connections, eliminating bottlenecks between edge and core. BlackDiamond 8800 fits well at the edge of the most demanding enterprises switching Voice-over-IP (VoIP), video, wireless and data traffic.
