Hello,
I've updated this topic to better fit the flow of our community. The subject line is best if kept short and to the point. Use the full description/body of the topic to ask the question.

I think you may be interested in the new ExtremeFabric functionality in EXOS 22.2. Take a look at the ExtremeFabric Release Notes, as well as the GNS3 Project that we have developed as an example.

In short the answer is yes, depending on a few things to clarify:
- What type of fabric to you want to build? L2 or L3?
- If L3, what design do you look for (not the topology, but rather the L3 protocol specifics)
- The term fabric may suggest some kind of automation, what do you expect?

Rather than suggesting some functionality. I try to identify the possibility of designing a Fabric  with a SPINE-LEAF topology with Extreme Networks Summit x670-G2 switches and the associated current functionalities. Or alternatively have a perspective, as they would be developing or incorporating the mentioned in the near future (such as: Roadmap / Beta). I appreciate the answers you can give me.
