ExtremeXOS Applications Environment

ExtremeXOS 16.2 introduces an environment that allows management applications, controllable through a web interface, to communicate directly with other switch management applications.

Applications are management software modules that manage, configure, or monitor specific functions within a switch. The applications leverage existing ExtremeXOS capabilities and protocols to simplify complex tasks. You may download applications to a switch independently from an ExtremeXOS release (see ezServiceablity (File Upload/Download)).
