Brocade Partner Network (BPN)

Brocade’s Channel Partners─value-added distributors and resellers─leverage their extensive technology expertise, wide range of services, and vertical industry knowledge to market, sell, and support our industry-leading solutions.


Network requirements are going through a dramatic change as technology shifts toward cloud, mobile, big data, and social platforms. That shift is driving networks to be built on the New IP, enabling the higher performance, flexibility, scalability, and resiliency required to support a growing array of applications, on-demand workloads, and global and mobile network users. At Brocade, we’ve been an industry leader in addressing these changes, and have created a product portfolio, compelling programs, and the tools for success that simplifies this transition for our partners.

Differentiated Portfolio Built On Open Solutions

From the data center to the network edge and into the cloud, Brocade is helping organizations make a smooth transition to today’s world where information and applications reside anywhere and everywhere. Because Brocade is driving innovation in both hardware and software defined networking (SDN), our customers can choose the best networking architecture for their specific needs. And, because Brocade is committed to delivering interoperable, open solutions that leverage our broad, multi-vendor ecosystem, our customers get more choices, increased flexibility, and greater control.

Partnering For Success

Effectively selling today’s networking solution requires a partner that understands what it takes to succeed. That’s why Brocade is committed to helping our partners grow their businesses, leveraging our innovative, highly-differentiated technologies. We work closely and collaboratively with our partners to develop their solutions expertise, sales skills, and profitability. You can make the most of this opportunity by joining the Brocade Partner Network program. Once you join you’ll get the sales and marketing tools, training, services, and pre- and post-sales support you need to effectively sell Brocade solutions.
