Brocade networking solutions for service providers are designed for the most demanding performance, scalability, capacity, and reliability requirements. This includes carrier-class solutions capable of providing virtually unlimited bandwidth and capacity while supporting non-stop operations.
Brocade also understands the need for a cost-effective solution as well as the need to simplify what traditionally has been a very complex environment. As a result, Brocade helps service providers deliver new types of services to generate new revenue streams that enable continued business growth.
Service providers are rapidly adopting Carrier Ethernet services around the globe thanks to compelling capabilities such as standardized service definitions as well as improved scalability, reliability, QoS, and manageability. Brocade carrier-grade infrastructure allows providers to build highly scalable networks to deliver residential and business services, while helping them maintain price-performance leadership and investment protection in the face of increased bandwidth requirements.
Service providers that embrace public cloud services can deliver additional, value-added services and capitalize on new revenue opportunities.
Regardless of the model - private, public or hybrid - the simplicity, uptime and capabilities of the network will ultimately define application performance and the user experience in the cloud. Brocade's cloud-optimized networks span across multiple customer segments, architectures and applications and its heritage in both data center and IP networking uniquely positions the company to deliver a comprehensive portfolio for private, public and hybrid clouds.
Brocade solutions for Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) uniquely provide industry-leading density with wire-speed performance at low latency for any packet size, consuming less power and dissipating less heat than comparable solutions. The Brocade MLX Series is a powerful solution for IXPs, which explains why the largest Internet Exchanges utilize Brocade solutions to power their rapidly expanding businesses.
Brocade offers a complete range of routing products for Internet Service Providers (ISPs), ranging from compact fix-form Brocade NetIron CER 2000 Series routers to high-performance Brocade MLX Series routers. Comprehensive IPv4 unicast and multicast routing protocols support many high-performance routing scenarios, and Brocade also offers the most complete IPv6 solutions to meet growing and future demands.
With rising demand for mobile broadband services due to the ever-increasing proliferation of smart mobile communications devices, operators are seeing a sharp increase in bandwidth requirements. Brocade offers a mobile backhaul solution to keep pace with this demand by helping operators migrate to new packet backhaul networks that offer increased capacity at lower cost, while providing the necessary service, reliability, and quality of experience.
The Brocade and IBM telemetry and real-time analytics solution helps provide service providers with key insights into their networks. Leveraging the power of the Brocade MLXe Series and IBM InfoSphere Streams, the solution enables service providers to non-disruptively extract and analyze massive data flows from their networks. They can then use this information to make intelligent, real-time business decisions.
Video is rapidly creating new data traffic and exceeding the bandwidth that service providers are able to support. Service providers that want to offer triple-play and IPTV services need to build reliable aggregation networks that can deliver advanced services now and in the future. The Brocade MLX Series and NetIron CES 2000 Series routers are ideal for this type of environment because of their low-latency and high-port density design.
