Carrier Ethernet - MEF Certified CompliantNetwork planners today must increasingly extend the range of their service offerings to the edge of their networks. However, extending intelligence and high-touch processing capabilities to the network edge requires the ability to flexibly define and easily manage services in an efficient manner. As a result, Quality of Service (QoS), resiliency, and security are critical factors in the deployment of these Ethernet-based services.

The availability of space often determines the feasibility of deploying new equipment and services—whether at a central office or a remote site—within service provider, campus, or data center environments. To meet these challenges, the Brocade NetIron CES 2000 Series is purpose-built to provide flexible, resilient, secure, and advanced Ethernet and MPLS-based services in a compact form factor.

The NetIron CES 2000 Series is a family of compact 1U, multiservice edge/aggregation switches that combine powerful capabilities with high performance and availability. The NetIron CES 2000 Series is available in 24- and 48-port 1 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) copper and Hybrid Fiber (HF) configurations with four or two 10 GbE ports. The switches provide a broad set of advanced Layer 2, IPv4, IPv6, MPLS, and SDN capabilities in the same device. As a result, they support a diverse set of applications in metro edge, service provider, mobile backhaul wholesale, data center, and large enterprise networks.

Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is a powerful new network paradigm that provides increased agility and programmatic control of network infrastructure for a new class of IT applications to meet critical business needs. The NetIron CES 2000 Series enables SDN by supporting the OpenFlow protocol, which allows communication between an OpenFlow controller and the OpenFlow-enabled NetIron CES 2000 switch. The NetIron CES 2000 Series delivers OpenFlow 1.3 in hybrid switch mode, meaning organizations can simultaneously deploy traditional Layer 2 and Layer 3 forwarding with OpenFlow on the same system. This unique capability enables network operators to seamlessly integrate OpenFlow into existing networks, providing the benefits offered by SDN for specific flows while the remaining traffic is forwarded as before.

CDE Lightband delivers premium Ethernet services with Brocade.

Abstract:

Metro service provider SpringNet upgrades its Brocade network infrastructure to boost capacity, improve services delivery, and generate new revenue streams

Abstract:

Next-generation networks require an overall architecture evolving to accommodate new technologies that support the growing numbers of users, applications, and services. IPv6 is designed to be more robust, dramatically increase the pool of global IP addresses, simplify network administration, resolve security and mobility issues, and improve Quality of Service (QoS).

Abstract:

Many services, such as mobile Internet and mobile TV, require high bandwidth, and current backhaul infrastructures are not optimized to handle this traffic. Advanced routers and switches from Brocade enable highly scalable designs for the eventual convergence of voice and data infrastructure that can deliver new multimedia services.

Abstract:

Dynamic orchestration and provisioning of campus network resources using Software-Defined Networking (SDN).

Abstract:

The ability to transport Ethernet over different transport technologies raises the exciting proposition of Ethernet services not only in campus or metro networks but also at a global level.
