Extreme Networks, Inc., a pioneer in cloud networking, today announced a set of new solutions that will enable clients to get more out of their networks in the Infinite Enterprise. The company's ExtremeCloudTM portfolio has been expanded to incorporate new SD-WAN and AIOps with digital twin capabilities, allowing clients to offer secure connection at the network's edge, accelerate cloud deployments, and unearth actionable data – all from a single platform.
Jim Burke, Chief Information Officer, John Carroll University said that “CoPilot is a game changer – its ability to proactively detect anomalies, prioritize actions and provide clear and meaningful insights is so far beyond what we’ve experienced in any other AIOps solution. We expect it will help to reduce risk across our organization, while freeing up our IT team to focus on fixing issues before they happen, not after they’ve caused a significant disruption to business.”
Mark Leary, Research Director, Network Analytics & Automation, IDC said that “Productive and collaborative IT staff and teams, from networking to security to development and from engineering to operations to support, require complete network visibility and control to deliver on the full promise of networking in this hyper-connected digital era. Comprehensive network intelligence and insights serve to bolster service quality, problem resolution, threat mitigation and digital innovation. CoPilot’s emphasis on problem avoidance is a differentiated approach to applying AI/ML across the network. Further, leveraging a digital twin in a cloud networking environment will provide the confidence that investments are optimized, and system and service adjustments are battle tested.”
“As a highly dispersed organization, it’s critical that we have visibility and control over all of the applications running across our business and can ensure that we can optimize the performance of those applications as needed. With ExtremeCloud SD-WAN, we now have a secure, reliable and cost-effective way to manage our network from within a single platform – which removes significant burden to our IT staff and helps create more operational efficiency across the board.”

Alan Weckel, Founder and Technology Analyst, 650 Group said, “The success of cloud networking in any organization will be predicated on the breadth and depth of features, simplicity and return on investment. Layering SD-WAN into a very feature-rich cloud solution with AI/ML, analytics and secure connectivity will provide enterprises with a cost-effective and highly efficient way to manage their highly dispersed businesses.”
Nabil Bukhari, Chief Technology Officer and Chief Product Officer, Extreme Networks stated “Our new suite of solutions will better equip our customers to go beyond cloud management and start unlocking critical insights that make the network a strategic asset. We’re bringing security and connectivity together and making it simple to manage, deploy and scale to meet the ever-evolving needs brought on by the Infinite Enterprise. We’ve layered features into our cloud solution that will drive meaningful business impact and ROI by simplifying operations, removing complexity and reducing risk.”
