Enhance Single Pane of Management & Policy
ExtremeFabric v1.0 (Beta only)Fabric Solution that is scalable, resilient and easy-to-deploy. Only Config, Discovery, and Forwarding are supported for this first release.
Convergence End PointDynamically apply policy to a port depending on a device (IP telephone or video device) detected.
Policy profile will override port authentication via a profile based attribute
Strengthens Enterprise Solutions
ELRP with Dynamic VLAN
Extreme’s proprietary loop prevention (ELRP) mechanism is enhanced to detect loops on dynamic VLANs created by modules like Netlogin/Policy, XNV, MVRP etc.
IP route scaling with ALPM
Algorithmic longest-prefix match (ALPM) is being used on X670-G2, X770, and X870 platforms to increase hardware IP route scale.
Scale of virtual router instances used by VRRP to increase the availability and reliability of routing has been increased to 2K
NTP over multiple VRs
NTP has been enhanced to work across multiple virtual routers simultaneously.
Enhance Ease of Use & Serviceability Capabilities
Node Alias MIB
Discovery of end systems' VLANID, Source MAC, Source IP, Protocol etc. on a per-port basis.
Reliable File Transfers
File transfers (download and TFTP) commands will automatically attempt to use both default and management VRs
Multiple STP enhancements (default MSTP, support for netlogin campus mode etc.) were made to make it more robust and resilient.
Automatically save configuration
Periodically auto-saves current running switch configuration
Manage Process Control Groups
Segregate processes running on a device into groups and assign appropriate limits for usage of memory and CPU.
