back to article Extreme Networks confirms it's buying Avaya's network biz

Avaya and Extreme Networks have confirmed that the former will sell its networking business to the latter, for “approximately US$100m”. The two flagged the deal in March, but because Avaya was courting other bids it's taken a while for Extreme to be confirmed as the buyer. Now both companies have emitted canned statements …

    Anybody using Avaya switches ? Motorola, now Extreme Wing Wireless is very feature rich and flexible for a competitive price. But Avaya ?

      No, they said it was more for VOIP business, Brocade will handle more of the switching business.

    The curse of Commodore, sorry I mean Nortel, continues.

    Avaya switching is great, usually half the price of cisco, the stacking and redundancy are better, the managment tools are a lot better and cheaper, oh and the lifetime nextday waranty is free

    there new wireless is great, their Identity Engines IAM is excelent (cisco used to use it before avaya purchased it,) their switches out perform most in the pure speeds and feeds, oh and the VPS series fabric switches are excellent, they have run the last couple of winter olympics and are pushing cisco hard for the summer ones too.

    I just hope they don't go purple.
