Make room for the “Internet Of Things”

You need a network that can forward both IPv4 and IPv6 traffic without fail. The Brocade MLXe Enterprise switches delivers industry-leading scale for simultaneous forwarding of both v4 and v6 traffic with a wide range of configurations to meet every business need.

Pervasive security capabilities

MACsec and IPsec-enabled modules provides pervasive protection for valuable business data without complexity. Encrypted network traffic forwarded at wire-speed with no degradation in performance.

Move seamlessly to SDN

Bring the power of “interworking” to your network with SDN and OpenFlow. The Brocade MLX Series features Brocade’s unique hybrid-port mode, which lets you combine traditional IPv4, IPv6, with OpenFlow forwarding on a single port.
