Deliver New Human Experiences

Delivering better outcomes and next-generation experiences rely on connecting humans to technology. These connections require more than just newer hardware – they require an intelligent network.

We’ve launched Extreme Elements so you can create new human experiences and business outcomes. Whether you are a school looking to enhance Digital Citizenship and Student Safety, a retail store wishing to enhance the in-store shopping experience or a hospital focused on delivering enhanced patient care and experience, Extreme Elements can help you build your future.

Introducing Extreme Elements

Extreme Elements provides the building blocks enterprises need to build the right architecture to fulfill the specialized demands of their business. Unlike other vendors, Extreme does not offer one-size-fits-all solutions because we recognize every business and human experience is different.

Extreme Elements provides enterprises the flexibility to pick and choose the elements they need to yield positives outcome for their business. It provides a self-sustaining foundation – the autonomous network – with elements that adapt and work together in harmony.

Extreme Elements Components

The central element is the Human element. Every product, application and service Extreme designs and brings to market delivers a superior human experience. We are relentless in our commitment to delivering customer-driven networks that help businesses accelerate their digital transformation and deliver better outcomes to their users.

  • Software-Driven Infrastructure: An infrastructure that continuously learns, and self optimizes, adjusting resources in real-time depending on the needs of your users and customers. Extreme software-driven Infrastructure extends from the edge to the campus core, to the cloud, and the datacenter. Offering a comprehensive portfolio of next-generation switches, routers, and mobility products, businesses can pick and choose the elements they need.
  • Insights and Analytics: Comprehensive insights and analytics so businesses can track user, application, and IoT device usage in real-time; identify anomalous behavior, and automatically resolve issues without human intervention. For example, ExtremeAnalytics is a network-based business intelligence solution that captures and analyzes context-based application traffic to deliver meaningful intelligence about applications, users, locations and devices.
  • Closed-Loop Automation: Delivering cross-domain and closed-loop automation so businesses can optimize network performance from the end device to the application. By automating manual changes and updates, enterprises can optimize network performance, enable greater business agility, and accelerate the rollout of new services. For example, Extreme fabric automation solutions enable fast setup for the most demanding network architectures, and the cross-domain Extreme Workflow Composer automation solution extends the benefits beyond the network domain to security, storage, compute and operations.
  • Open Ecosystem: An open and standards-based ecosystem that allows businesses to build exactly the architecture and applications they require to fulfill the specialized demands of their enterprise. Extreme has partnerships with leading cloud, stack, application and device technology innovators to develop unique solutions that solve real-world problems. In Extreme Elements partner elements are denoted with a “P”; Extreme products and services with an “E’.
  • Security: Delivering multi-layered network security capabilities without complexity. Extreme security elements can help protect your organization by gaining visibility and control over your connected users, devices, and applications, segmenting your network with ease and scale and creating a holistic security eco-system through integration with best of breed security vendors.

For example, ExtremeAI RF is Extreme’s AI-powered solution for Wi-Fi RF management and ExtremeAI Security is our AI-powered solution for IoT device security and automated threat remediation. Both solutions provide IT with proactive resolutions rather than the traditional reactive mode; freeing up time for IT to focus on value-add initiatives.
