Brocade Shares Vision for New IP at Mobile World Congress

SDN, NFV and Analytics for Mobile Networks on Display in Barcelona

BARCELONA, SPAIN and SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 26, 2015) - Brocade (NASDAQ: BRCD), the leader in storage fabric networking solutions, will share its vision for New IP, a breakthrough networking technology and architecture, at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain on March 2-5, 2015. Brocade will exhibit in Suite 2G29, Hall 2 under the theme "Break the Status Quo: Think Big. Start Now."

At Mobile World Congress, Brocade will showcase its insights and research into the future of mobile networks, which can be summarized in just two words: New IP. Far more efficient and agile than conventional IP networks, this contemporary version of IP, 20 years in the making, is the future of global networking.

What is New IP?

Simply put, New IP is a new way of doing business. It transforms the service provider network to help with increasing network costs due to the ever-expanding rise in network traffic and connected devices. The New IP is open with a purpose and is Ecosystem driving, enabling service providers to quickly innovate and deliver new high-margin services to their customers. New IP is endlessly flexible, so it can be implemented by service providers in their own way and in their own time. Service providers, education, government and enterprise customers of all sizes can all benefit from New IP.

With the New IP, service providers are finally free to rethink longstanding business models and embrace the IP revolution, which has been racing towards virtualization for the past two decades. New IP is also a critical business tool for unlocking innovation both internally and externally through DevOps and open sourced technologies.

We invite you to experience the power and performance of New IP first-hand by joining us for a suite of demonstrations that will take place throughout the day in the Brocade suite. Our on-site experts can also walk you through the details -- technology, networking architecture and more -- to explain how service providers can benefit significantly from New IP via virtualization and SDN.

Also on display in the Brocade suite:

  • Evolving the Customer Edge with the New IP: Watch a demonstration of a before-and-after of the services typically delivered with physical customer premise equipment and how service provider can migrate these virtual services within the network.
  • Mobile Network Visibility and Analytics for the New IP: Learn about Brocade's Network Visibility Analytics (NVA) architecture based on high density packet broker and Vistapointe analytics orchestrated with Open Daylight and Openstack.
  • Delivering On-Demand Services for the SGi-LAN with the New IP: Experience how agility is achieved through dynamic service chaining of network functions in the SGi-LAN, and orchestrated with Open Daylight and OpenStack dynamic instantiating and configuration of NFV instances on the SGi-LAN.
  • Practical Steps to Deploy the NFV & SDN: Gain knowledge of practical steps from today's network to the next generation design based on the new IP. We will show existing support for Open Daylight on Brocade's routers & switches as a foundation for future services.

Brocade will also host a series of Tech Talks. Taking place twice a day, these top-of-mind technology sessions will feature some of Brocade's leading thinkers.
