Changing networking needs and hybrid IT environments have spurred new products and services from some of the biggest networking vendors and startups alike. Here are 10 of the newest offerings to join the market.

Extreme Networks' Universal 5720 Switch

Extreme’s new 5720 Universal Switch, revealed in June, is the latest in a series of high-performance wired and wireless switches for enterprise deployments. The 5720 Universal Switch can support multiple use cases, making it easy for customers to adopt new technologies while preserving hardware and associated licenses, Extreme said. The series can be managed alongside a range of wire and wireless services and SD-WAN platforms from the ExtremeCloud IQ cloud-based management platform.

The latest switch series is a continuation of Extreme’s universal platforms, which are helping to support a slew of brand-new used cases. Extreme’s universal hardware is also giving enterprises more flexibility and choice, while reducing the number of products they have to buy, according to Nabil Bukhari, Extreme’s CTO and chief product officer. “People ask: ’Is it a campus switch or a branch switch?’ and that’s the exact thing we’re trying to get away from,” he said.

Right now more than ever, enterprises need technologies that aren’t location-dependent, he said. “The technology needs to deliver an outcome wherever you want that outcome,” he said. “The 5720 Universal Switch will help enterprises get the best of their Wi-Fi 6E regardless of where they deploy it.”
