Avaya core switch: Nortel's data business continued

 Extreme Networks pulls virtual switching back into the network

Avaya is stepping up efforts to carry on the Nortel data business, releasing an Ethernet switching line meant to outpace the existing Avaya 8600 switches. The new Avaya Ethernet Routing Switch (ERS) 8800 promises a 150% increase in memory and a 33% decrease in power consumption.

The switch architecture integrates wired and wireless networks, which Avaya says will make its unified communications applications more accessible to wireless users. The company also claims that the souped-up performance will better enable video.
