As today’s enterprise networks continue to converge, there is an increasing need for a smarter network operating system that can deliver plug-and-play connectivity, resilient connectivity, and secured connectivity. Historically, network switches and routers have operated on a monolithic operating system.
However, today’s converged applications such as voice, video, storage and data require capabilities from a network infrastructure that are beyond the reach of a monolithic operating system.
This informative white paper describes how ExtremeXOS®, Extreme Networks® modular operating system is a key component in building networks that run today’s business applications. This paper provides an overview of ExtremeXOS, including the key bene ts of a modular operating system.
