Whether you’re a communications service provider with wireline or wireless offerings, a cable operator, a Mobile Network Operator (MNO), or a cloud provider, your business model revolves around three key objectives:

Find new ways to generate revenue streams

Reduce or get a higher return on OpEx and CapEx

Increase overall customer satisfaction

We believe the path to all of these objectives is transforming your network infrastructure to the New IP.

Brocades New IP solutions for service providers

The New IP is an open, software-driven infrastructure that takes advantage of automation and software-defined networking (SDN) to simplify network processes. Simpler network operation encourages innovation and accelerates the speed of service delivery.

Our New IP products for service providers start with Brocade MLX Series high-performance routers, Brocade CER 2000 Series compact routers, and NetIron CES 2000 Series switches. The OpenFlow support in these products facilitates the use of SDN, which is essential to a New IP transformation.

In line with the software-driven spirit of the New IP, we add value to our hardware infrastructure with an extensive portfolio of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) devices. Our portfolio includes a virtual application delivery controller and products for virtual routing, network visibility and analytics (NVA), and flow optimization, plus a virtual evolved packet core solution for mobile operators. It also features the industry’s first commercial implementation of an OpenDaylight SDN controller: the Brocade SDN Controller (formally known as Brocade Vyatta Controller).

Open source solutions such as the Brocade SDN Controller are central to the New IP. Through support of open standards, our solutions enable close collaboration with third parties in multi-vendor environments that further speed the development and deployment of innovative services.

Evolve on your terms

We can help you implement a phased transition to the New IP that will shrink your service deployment time window from months to weeks. Many of our switches ease your transition to SDN with a hybrid port mode that lets you run OpenFlow and IP/MPLS traffic flows on the same port at the same time. And our NFV portfolio lets you overlay new software services on top of your existing IT infrastructure, so you can align your investments with your business priorities. Evolutionary steps, revolutionary results. That’s the New IP path to achieving your business objectives


Brocade products turn Possibilities into realities. Through industry transition and technology evolution. For large and small businesses, service providers, and the public sector. Our proven data and storage network fabrics, state-of-the-art virtual devices, management tools, and open approach are ready to support your success.
