Evolve Your Customers Network Edge With Unmatched Flexibility
Last fall, Extreme pushed the boundaries of networking technology, allowing customers to take advantage of the unparalleled flexibility and investment protection provided in our 5520 Series Universal switches. Now, we invite you to join us for a partner webinarto meet the new Extreme 5420 Series Universal switches which was made generally available June 16.
The new 5420 edge switch family delivers a simple, intuitive, consistent deployment experience, and can support multiple deployment use cases by changing the software/feature set.
Extreme’s Universal Platforms reduce hardware obsolescence by allowing customers to evolve to ExtremeCloud IQ at their own pace – all while preserving their existing hardware and associated licenses. Why is this a big deal? Our competitors can’t offer this level of flexibility!
Don‘t miss out and join us for the Extreme 5420 Series Webinar.
