Extreme Networks, Inc. continues to innovate in the data center by addressing power consumption and reduced operational costs.  Extreme Networks is now shipping a greener, more energy efficient version of its Summit® X650 10GBASE-T data center switch, a very high performance 10GbE, Top-of-Rack Ethernet switch, designed for the next generation data center, cloud computing and hosted environments.

A second generation 10 Gigabit, Top-of-Rack switch, the Summit X650-24t consumes 200W less power than the first generation, meeting the energy efficiency goals of data center planners. The solution is complemented with Intel’s new lower power 10GBASE-T adapter that provides state-of the art interfaces to high performance servers.

Earlier this year, Extreme Networks was also the first to support copper 10 Gigabit (10GBASE-T ) with the Summit® X650 Top-of-Rack data center switch, complementing a complete 10GBASE-T ecosystem, from high performance server adapters to switches.

“Power savings is critical to data center where space, heat and bandwidth have to be optimized,” said Aziz Ala’ali, Regional Director for Extreme Networks, Middle East & Africa.  “Delivery of the latest generation of the Summit X650 makes it the only switch that provides excellent energy efficiency and provides customers with cost-effective 10 GbE options for standard RJ45 copper interfaces using CAT 5 and CAT 6 cabling, up to 100 meters making it a must have for the data center.”
