Internet2 Deploys Brocade for National-Scale, 100GbE SDN

Internet2 is using Brocade's MLXe Core Routers as an integral component of its 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE)  network.



"Networking infrastructure is being transformed by SDN into an open platform for innovation. We are excited that Brocade 100 GbE and true Hybrid-Mode OpenFlow technologies are part of the new Internet2 Network. By working with Internet2 and its members, Brocade will build upon its pioneering work on high-speed software-defined networks," said Ken Cheng, vice president of the Routing, Application Delivery and Software Networking Group at Brocade.


The Brocade MLXe 100 GbE routers enable programmatic control of the network infrastructure to deliver massive scale and intelligent service delivery capabilities.  Notably, Brocade is offering support for OpenFlow in Hybrid Mode, enabling the 10 GbE and 100 GbE Brocade MLXe solutions to integrate SDN with existing IP/MPLS networks. Brocade said this unique capability enables network operators such as Internet2 to integrate OpenFlow into existing networks, giving them the programmatic control offered by SDN for specific flows while the remaining traffic is handled as before.
