Extreme Adds SDN in Latest OS Release

Extreme Networks released the latest version of its modular Operating System (ExtremeXOS v15.3) with new features and support for SDN technology, including OpenFlow and support for SDN applications from partners such as Big Switch Networks and NEC.

The company is also shipping its OpenStack Quantum plugin, a downloadable software module providing a rich API for ExtremeXOS that enables orchestration and management of multi-tenant networks providing security, load balancing and data center interconnect infrastructure as network services.

The OS supports Big Switch Networks' Big Tap, which provides traffic monitoring and dynamic network visibility with flow filtering, and Big Virtual Switch (BVS), an application for virtualized data center networks which provisions the physical network into multiple logical networks across the stack, from Layer 2 to 7. Additionally, ExtremeXOS 15.3 delivers support for AVB (Audio Video Bridging), Identity Management enhancements, XNV Dynamic VLANs and GRE Tunneling enhancements.
