Extreme Networks leads modular 40GbE switches market in Q3 2011

Extreme Networks is leading the modular 40GbE switches
market and second in overall 40GbE Ethernet in Q3 2011, according to Dell’Oro

As 10GbE servers are deployed to serve mobile devices and
web applications, 40GbE ports are emerging as the switch inter-connect of
choice for the private data center and the hosted cloud.

The 40GbE BlackDiamond modular switches from Extreme
Networks ranked #1 worldwide in product revenue and the combined BlackDiamond
and Summit switching products ranked #2 last quarter.

Earlier, Extreme Networks earned a Top 5 rating in data
center and cloud switching (ToR/EoR) market share according to a separate
Dell’Oro report on the Cloud market opportunity and data center networks,
released in November.

The Dell’Oro Report market reports follow the recent
Lippis Test Report results that showed the BlackDiamond X8 switch tested 3-10
faster than other network vendors.  The Extreme Networks core fabric
switch also had the lowest latency (of 2.3 microseconds for 64 bit frames) and
lowest energy use (5.6 watts per port) of any core products in the test. The
BlackDiamond X8 is expected to begin shipping in the first half of next
calendar year.

Extreme Networks has more than 6,000 customers worldwide,
including 19 of the top 20 mobile operators.  Extreme Networks also has
more than 700 data center customers worldwide, including Johns Hopkins
University, Korea Telecom, Microsoft, Samsung, SingTel, VMware and Wynn

“Our recent momentum in the high-end of the data
center market puts us in great position to lead as cloud networks evolve,”
said Harpreet Chadra, vice president, product management for Extreme Networks.
