Hi Ilya,

SDN is very wide subject - and in the past a headline for a lot of things - functionality of this subject are main components of the extreme solution.

Currently automation and connecting/connect management tools and authentication with other IT components are kindly more important than ever.

If you have Netsight (Extreme Manament Center) and NAC (Extreme Control) than you have the most important components. Regarding which specific feature or functionality you need, some additional licenses are necessary.

I hope this helps. If not - please specify your question.

Hi Matthias -

I think he might be referring to the OneC SDN controllers that used (a few years ago) to be called out on the Products page.

Hi, I believed that OneController had end of sale.

However, agree with M.Nees. that ExtremeManagement Center and ExtremeControl have the most important components for SDN.

Best regards.
