Brocade Network Subscription provides a new way for organizations to acquire cloud-optimized network infrastructure on a monthly subscription basis. It is a flexible, open-ended way to deploy network infrastructure and aligns capacity with changing business requirements.
Brocade Network Subscription has no term commitments and provides complete obsolescence protection to expand, contract, or refresh infrastructure based on ever-evolving requirements.
- Enterprises can keep network investments off the balance sheet so that they do not impact credit ratings and performance metrics.
- Service providers can align network infrastructure costs with revenue, streamlining time to profitability.
- Government agencies gain the flexibility to upgrade anytime by spreading the cost over several fiscal years.
Moreover, organizations can upgrade to the latest equipment, at any time. There is no need to wait for CapEx budgets or depreciation schedules to catch up.
With Brocade Network Subscription, organizations can invest in scaling their businesses instead of their networks by avoiding network infrastructure capital expenditures. They also can avoid rigid multi-year lease obligations through a "pay-as-you-go" approach. In addition, Brocade direct support helps maximize availability and performance while eliminating the need to manage separate support contracts.
