Extreme Networks 40 Gigabit Ethernet: Another hat in the ring

 Extreme Networks pulls virtual switching back into the network

Extreme Networks used Interop 2010 as the stage to launch its VIM3-40G4X 40 Gigabit Ethernet strategy, which adds four 40 Gigabit Ethernet connections to its Summit X650 top-of-rack stackable switches at less than $1,000 per port. Extreme is pushing the "no-forklift" approach, saying that users can transition to 40 Gigabit Ethernet switching using their existing X650 and X480 equipment.

Extreme Networks executives are aiming for users who will depend on the super speed to enabled highly virtualized environments.

NEXT: For one vendor, 10 Gigabit Ethernet is still plenty.
