A Management Center is the heart of the ExtremeManagement family of management and security solutions.
Management Center (formerly known as NetSight) is a single pane of glass management system that provides wired/wireless visibility and control from the data center to the mobile edge. The intelligence, automation, and integration of your management software enable the IT organization to optimize the efficiency of network operations and reduce total cost of ownership.
Management Center provides centralized visibility and granular control of enterprise network resources end to end. Management Center is distinctive for granularity that reaches beyond ports and VLANs down to individual users, applications, and protocols. No matter how many moves, adds, or changes occur in your environment, Management Center keeps everything in view and under control through role-based access controls. One click can equal a thousand actions when you manage your network with Extreme Networks. Management Center can even manage beyond Extreme Networks switching, routing, and wireless hardware to deliver standards-based control of other vendors’ network equipment.
A single management system for the entire network providing consistent management across all devices.
Integrated wired/wireless management – Provides consistent management of both the wired and wireless network from a single interface.
Dashboard and reports – Provides a graphical user interface for network data collection and reporting of network analytics.
Open Application Programmatic Interface (API) – Provides an open and secure two-way interface into Management Center for third-party application integration and control of software defined networking (SDN) implementations.
Network Inventory Management – Advanced network configuration and change management for the wired and wireless infrastructure.
Historical data collection and trend analysis – Provides the ability to take flow-based data to understand how the network is being used up to layer 4. With the addition of Purview this extends the detailed analytics to the application layer (layer 7) for detailed application visibility across the entire network.
Policy-based network – Allows for the centralized creation of policies that follow users and devices across the network. These are not tied to the physical network and can change based on user, device, TOD, location, and connection type.
Identity and access control – Provides visibility and control down to the user and device level.
Intelligent alarm management – Alarm and event intelligence that alert IT when issues occur within the network are automatically cleared when the problem no longer exists and allows thresholds to be set so that warnings are sent prior to an actual failure.
Troubleshooting – Eliminates the guesswork and makes troubleshooting user issues easy. Just enter the username and discover where the user is located, where they are connected on the network, the type of device they are using, and much more.
Third-party network integration – Manage third-party devices to provide a complete picture of the entire infrastructure in a heterogeneous network environment.
