ExtremeCloud IQ Site Engine

IT organizations are having to adapt to constant change while they face challenges due to growing complexity, limited integration between technologies, and a lack of operational automation. They need to decrease the overall cost of ongoing operations as well as scaling to support new business initiatives. Administrators require effective tools to help them simplify management, automate daily tasks, and facilitate the transition to unified, cloud-based solutions.
Extreme unifies network management under One Cloud. As part of this, ExtremeCloud IQ Site Engine simplifies and streamlines IT operations. It provides end-to-end network management, task automation, analytics, service assurance, and orchestration. Site Engine supports cloud-native, legacy Extreme, and third-party devices and facilitates the transition to cloud-based management.
Cross-domain workflow capabilities automate routine network tasks. Site Engine provides role-based network access control (NAC) for all devices, including third-party networking devices. Flexible deployment options address a range of security and compliance requirements. The added ability to integrate with other Extreme tools provides customers with the extensibility they need to adapt. Site Engine is a subscription-based offering based on Universal Licenses, so IT organizations can cost-effectively transition their entire network to cloud-based management in a way that works best for them.

ExtremeCloud IQ CoPilot

The increasing challenges of supporting hybrid workforces, new business services at the edge, and digital transformation are straining IT staff. Teams are actively looking for ways to make life easier for network admins to reduce trouble tickets and provide more efficient ways to resolve problems while ensuring SLAs and enhancing user experiences.
Most IT organizations are adopting artificial intelligence for operations (AIOps) as a way of addressing this complexity. The ExtremeCloud IQ CoPilot license tier builds on the extensive cloud-based network management capabilities of ExtremeCloud IQ offered with the Pilot license tier. It provides enhanced AIOps to help teams to be more data-driven and proactive. Time-consuming IT tasks are replaced with machine learning (ML) algorithms and derived insights. Anomaly detection capabilities help proactively identify problems before they impact end users and business services. CoPilot reduces the noise so users can focus on relevant insights and recommend corrective actions.
With most data breaches starting at endpoints, granular control is needed over users and loT devices and consistent policies across the entire network into multi-cloud. With ExtremeControl, an application available as part of ExtremeCloud IQ – Site Engine, users have centralized in-depth visibility and control over all endpoints across their network through one simple, flexible, and easy-to-consume dashboard.
ExtremeControl securely enables BYOD and loT to protect the network against external threats. It provides central management and the ability to define granular policies to meet compliance obligations, locate, authenticate, and apply targeted policies to users and devices.

ExtremeCloud IQ Essentials

The goal of any management solution is to provide the IT department with all the tools required to provide complete enterprise visibility, management, and control from a single platform. This avoids the challenges of having to integrate multiple applications, with multiple databases and often multiple interfaces. ExtremeCloud IQ is an industry-leading and visionary approach to cloud-driven network management, built from the ground up to take full advantage of Extreme’s end-to-end networking solutions. ExtremeCloud IQ delivers unified, full-stack management of wireless access points, switches, and routers and enables onboarding, configuration, monitoring, troubleshooting, reporting, and more. ExtremeCloud IQ Essentials integrates four Enterprise Service Applications into its Pilot subscription license.
Enterprises have varied requirements and limited budgets, as a result only the most critical applications or services may be purchased, potentially sacrificing visibility into important network information due to budget constraints. ExtremeCloud IQ Essentials ends the decision-making – any organization can now receive access to all enterprise network services without the complexity of integrating multiple applications, tying separate platforms, no additional licenses, no separate database and most importantly, with no additional cost.
ExtremeCloud IQ Essentials provides four key applications: Guest management, Location services, WIPS, and IoT, enabling organizations to take advantage of an all-in-one platform for wired and wireless management, business insights, location tracking, wireless security, seamless IoT onboarding and guest access, and guest access through a single user interface simplifying network management while infusing network and business insights.
ExtremeAnalytics extends the value of ExtremeCloud IQ – Site Engine. It enables users to keep their network secure through granular visibility and analytics into their applications and network, from the edge to the data center. Integrations into Extreme Networks’ Universal Platform Series, VSP series, Summit Series, ERS series, SLX platforms and ExtremeCloud IQ – Controllers provide application layer visibility and latency calculations for traffic flows regarding wired and wireless edge devices through the campus and all the way into the data center.
With ExtremeAnalytics, user behavior on the network can be better understood, level of user engagement can be identified, and business application delivery for optimized quality of experience can be ensured.
