Brocade and Ciena Team on Networked Storage

Brocade Communications Systems and Ciena will provide fully-tested Storage Area Network (SAN) solution over Metro and Wide Area Networks (MANs/WANs). The alliance combines Brocade's 4 Gbps SAN directors and switches with Ciena's CN 4200 FlexSelect Advanced Services Platform or CN 2000 Storage Extension Platform.

Ciena and Brocade's 4G Fibre Channel (FC) Wave Division Multiplexing (WDM) solutions are already deployed in networks operated by an international financial institution and a North American retailer, representing the industry's first 4 Gbps Fibre Channel SANs multiplexed over the WAN. http://www.brocade.com
