The solution is very cost-effective. It's not overly expensive at all.

The solution is budget-friendly especially when you buy in bulk. The price is hardware based. We paid 25,000 to 30,000 INR.

The pricing is fair. It's quite good overall. I'd rate it a three or a four out of five in terms of affordability. It's not quite as cheap as, for example, Huawei. However, it's reasonable.

The pricing keeps going up and that is worrying us for when we need to upgrade in the future. Our concern is we will not be able to afford it.

There is no license required to use the solution. The hardware controller is expensive, and this is why I prefer controlling ExtremeSwitching on the cloud.

There is a cost for ExtremeSwitching and if you want the support and maintenance, there are additional costs. My clients typically pay for the support and maintenance annually.

It is not a subscription-based model, and there is no licensing concept. We have to pay for hardware AMC. We have hardware on our premises and for the hardware support, we have to go for the annual maintenance contract with the partner.

All I can say about Extreme pricing is that it is much less expensive than Cisco and more expensive than HP. It is less expensive than Tesco by a mile. On pricing, it is going to beat most of the major competition.

I have been a network engineer since the mid-nineties. The company I am in now has19 buildings and 50 plus switches, all Extreme. We use lots of gen one and gen twos — either the X460s or X690s — using the SummitStack. That is our standard variant of the Extreme Networks. We do have a couple of old 460s and a couple of old 480s, but we use the SummitStack for those versions instead of the Black Diamond.

We primarily use the solution for the networking infrastructure. Actually, we use lots of products. Some are for the center of the infrastructure, and some are for the distribution and so on.
