Brocade Intros SDN Flow Optimizer App

Brocade introduced a new FLOW OPTIMIZER application and new SDN capabilities for its MLX SERIES routers.

The Brocade Flow Optimizer is designed to adapt the network based on anomalous traffic patterns and behaviors. The goal is to enable service providers and enterprises to gain proactive insight into their network traffic, mitigate network attacks, and eliminate network congestion, in order to improve the end user experience.

The SDN application supports an OpenDaylight-based controller that provides real-time policy-based management for network traffic flows through Brocade MLXe routers.  The Brocade Flow Optimizer allows network managers to mitigate network flood attacks, throttle bandwidth intensive workloads, reprioritize rogue traffic, and redirect suspicious activity for further analysis. The Brocade Flow Optimizer SDN application is generally available. Price is based on a perpetual software license, depending on the network capacity supported. Capacity for up to 20 GB of traffic management is priced at $4,995 and capacity for up to 200 GB of traffic management is priced at $12,995.

Brocade also announced the Brocade NetIron OS 5.9 software, building on the continued advancement of SDN capabilities in the Brocade MLXe routers. This latest OS release leverages the company's VersaScale programmable forwarding architecture.

"With the introduction of the Brocade Flow Optimizer, Brocade is taking a concrete step to help its customers maximize the value of software-driven networks and increase network performance by mitigating network attacks and enabling policy-based traffic engineering," said Jason Nolet, senior vice president, Switching, Routing, and Analytics Products Group at Brocade. "Brocade is delivering on the merits of agile, New IP networks with a low-risk, highly innovative SDN solution."
