Of all of the infrastructure environments, service provider networks have historically faced the most unrelenting pressure day in and day out. The need for scalability, reliability, and support for many individual customers while under the pressure of generating high revenue drive specific network requirements. Now, with major technology evolutions, societal trends, and challenging global business environments, the increasing pressure on service providers and their networks is forcing a fundamental transformation in their business. The applications and services that run on the network are rapidly evolving and growing, as well as the type, power, and number of network-connected devices.

With these considerable challenges for all service providers, the status quo no longer suffices to grow or sustain their business. Yet, significant opportunities exist in rethinking how they architect, deploy, and upgrade their transport, exchange, and wireless networks. Additionally, existing providers, as well as new entrants to the market, are rapidly building out data center infrastructure to support new types of services as customers adopt new communications trends and enterprise IT business transitions to the cloud.

Brocade helps providers maximize their advantage through Software-Defined Networking, Network Function Virtualization, and Ethernet Fabrics. The Brocade On-Demand Data Center blueprint enables providers to build out industry-leading data center networks with the flexibility, agility, and scalability to deliver new cloud services. Additionally, Brocade high-performance and scalable carrier-class routers enable new network architectures that meet the massive bandwidth requirements all across the network, while simplifying provider deployment and operations. Brocade IP switching and routing products, as well as Fibre Channel SAN solutions, are proven in some of the most demanding service provider networks in the world.
