ExtremeSwitching Valuable Features
Network Engineer at a government with 501-1,000 employees
I have been using ExtremeSwitching for so long that it is really natural for me. I just use them. I guess if I had to pick something I really like, it would maybe be the ease of using their protocol. They use ring topology protocol. Using that protocol is somewhat unique to Extreme. It is actually really handy.

Their number one valuable feature is the inspection firewalls that carry out a deep packet inspection on a port basis. It's a feature they've had for a number of years. Our customers like the switching, which does the deep packet inspections but can also write traffic from one VLAN to the next.
Extreme has become more aggressive with its pricing. The cost per switch per port has come down quite a bit, making it very competitive in the small and medium-size market. It has made the solution more favorable.

In our country, we have established a good relationship with the local representatives, and they made a good contract between us and the US, and they have offered good-priced performance rates for us. Mostly the price and the performance have been very valuable aspects of the solution for us.
You can scale the solution if you want to.
The stability has been largely pretty good.View full review »
