Hi Expert,
Can I ask why some of X460G2 belong to Extreme switching but some of X460G2 belong to summit series switches? Even in the hardware installation guide, X450G2 belong to summit, X440G2 belong to Extreme switching, but all of them using EXOS software. They are quite mess, is there someone know the reason?

Hi Li,
All of the X460-G2s are in the same series (and run EXOS, as you mentioned).

The Summit X460-G2s were released prior to a brand change that removed the family name and referred to all switching products as "ExtremeSwitching." The ExtremeSwitching X460-G2s were introduced more recently, and received the "new" name.

Your point is a valid one. Fortunately this issue should only exist in transition as we move forward with the new product naming conventions.

Hi Drew,
Can I ask what product Extreme switching include? I can see new EXOS and 200 series belong to "Extreme switching" any other product?

Hi Li,

There are two categories for Extreme Switching: Campus Switching and Data CenterSwitching.

Th new EXOS and 200 series belong to Campus Switching.

Hi Li,

Brocade switch, such as VDX and SLX , belong to our Data Center Switching 
http://www.extremenetworks.com/products/switching/data-center-switching/

Avaya switch, such as ERS and VSP, belong to our Campus Switching
http://www.extremenetworks.com/products/switching/campus-switching/


As summary, Avaya and Brocade switches belong to Extreme Switching. But they are under different categories. 


Best regards,
