Fabric Connect is the Easy button for enabling secure Hyper-Segmentation and Stealth Networking for Smart City and Smart County Networks, using an industry standard protocol.

Location: Waterway 3

Chuck Long - Principal Systems Engineer, Extreme Networks


Imagine being able to easily create secure isolated zones spanning anywhere across your network supporting your agencies like law enforcement, fire, water, energy or for services like financial transactions, customer records, video surveillance, IoT devices, physical security, public WiFi and kiosks.

Today, network segmentation is generally done using complicated architectures and many access control lists or filters. Creating end-to-end segments can involve costly and tedious switch-by-switch configurations across the network – including configuring the Network Core which can be risky.

With Hyper-Segmentation, only the network end-points are configured and the end-to-end control plane takes care of everything else. In fact, by just plugging a device into the access network a segment can be automatically configured with this fabric architecture. Because of this ease of configuration, creating hundreds or thousands of segmented unique virtual networks finally becomes practical. If a segment of the network is breached with this technology, vulnerabilities are isolated to just that segment to avoid lateral movement within the network. Come and see how we’ve revolutionized many government agencies like yours with this exciting new standards-based technology!
