Recent tests have further demonstrated that Extreme Networks Inc.'s BlackDiamond 6808 and Summit 48si Ethernet switching platforms provide superior performance and value for IP convergence applications over competitors, according to the results of tests performed by The Tolly Group.

The tests underscored that Extreme's high performance switching solutions delivered toll-quality voice traffic even during periods of congestion on both the inter-switch links and in the network backbone. Network architects using Extreme's multi-layer switching solutions as the underlying network infrastructure can support Cisco System's AVVID voice traffic alongside data. Notably, the Extreme infrastructure tested by The Tolly Group costs approximately 50% less than the similarly-equipped competitor switching infrastructure under test.

Extreme delivered consistent voice quality, latency and jitter even as congestion levels rose to 100% of network use of core switch ports and interswitch links. This Tolly report can be viewed on the Internet.

Extreme Networks is headquartered in Santa Clara, CA. The Tolly Group is based in Manasquan, NJ.
