SANTA CLARA, CA–(EMWNews – August 13, 2008) – Extreme Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: EXTR)

today announced that it is furthering the efficient use of energy in

networking by joining The Green Grid. As a member of this consortium,

Extreme Networks® will help promote the adoption of energy efficient

standards, processes, measurements and technologies within data centers.

The Green Grid is a global consortium dedicated to advancing energy

efficiency in data centers and business computing ecosystems. The

consortium’s scope includes collaboration with other industry groups and

government organizations worldwide to ensure that each organizational goal

is aligned with both developers and users of data center technology.

“CIO’s overseeing data centers are demanding cost-efficient network

solutions where a significant portion of their operational costs can be

reduced through energy savings,” said Paul Hooper, chief marketing officer

for Extreme Networks. “Joining The Green Grid is another example of

Extreme Networks ongoing commitment to improving power efficiency with

systems, software tools and network designs that reduce energy consumption

throughout the network.”

Extreme Networks will work with The Green Grid to help develop and deliver

energy efficient technologies and best practices for our customers with

particular focus on the implementation of green technologies in Ethernet

switching solutions targeted at data centers.

Earlier this year, Extreme Networks BlackDiamond® 8800 switch was

independently evaluated by The Tolly

Group to be one of the most efficient modular Ethernet switches in the

industry. Additionally, the Summit® X450 edge switch was independently

evaluated by David Newman of Network World and the switch was proven to

have the lowest power consumption during fully loaded operation among a

half dozen competing solutions tested.(1) Adding the device management

characteristics inherent in Extreme Networks’ ExtremeXOS® operating

system, a single, modular operating system available across the Extreme

Networks’ core and edge product family, Extreme Networks can optimize and

tune the network across the entire data center for energy efficient

operation.
