Converged App Networking with Next-Gen OS Tech

Length:  14 pages

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.

Working in tandem, our next-generation features include:

  • Modular architecture
  • Open-standards POSIX compliance
  • Secure operation with authentication
  • Encryption
  • Integrity, and protection
  • Flexible policy language with file-based ACLs
  • XML and Tcl languages

Extreme Networks can remove the bond between the software functions by sectionalizing the many lines of code into multiple layers. As a result, this modular approach delivers a resilient and multithreaded OS.
