Networks today are straining to support unprecedented levels of traffic due to high-bandwidth demands for on-demand personalized content. Leading-edge services such as high-definition video streaming, mobile broadband, and cloud services have significantly altered network traffic behavior. Instead of localized flows with occasional bursts, traffic flows are more collaborative over geographical distances and last longer. These new traffic patterns not only consume enormous amounts of network capacity, but also add a greater degree of complexity to network operations. Additionally, as many organizations look to offer IT services via the cloud, the need for networks to be cloud-optimized and cloud-ready is pressing. As a result, today’s network planners are seeking solutions that provide the right mix of scalability, performance, and operational simplicity. High-density 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) can meet rising commodity traffic demands while helping organizations maximize revenue and reduce costs.
Brocade delivers 100 GbE on its flagship routing platform, the Brocade MLX Series. The Brocade MLX 2-port 100 GbE CFP2 module provides industry-leading performance and scalability, enabling networks under extreme pressure - such as next-generation service provider networks, virtualized data centers, High- Performance Computing (HPC) networks, and large distributed enterprises - to support increasing application traffic.
