Extreme Networks on Tuesday expanded its portfolio with new fixed-edge switches and new Gigabit Ethernet, Power over Ethernet (PoE) and security features for its modular edge/aggregation switch line.

Extreme Networks said the new switches and switch modules come as part of its effort to support converged networking environments for voice, video and data.

The Summit X450 fixed Gigabit Ethernet edge switches come in 24- and 48-port versions with PoE support. Optional dual-port 10-Gigabit Ethernet uplinks also are available.

In addition, the switches feature IPv6 routing plus security features such as hardware-based sFlow sampling and policy-based security functions. SFlow is an industry standard for monitoring high-speed switched and routed networks.

Available now, the new X450 switches carry a starting price of $4,995.
