The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) has approved the Brocade MLX and MLXe 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) networking solutions to be added to the Unified Capabilities - Approved Products List (UC-APL), which tracks products that have completed Interoperability (IO) and Information Assurance (IA) certification.  The newly certified Brocade networking solutions can be deployed by Department of Defense (DoD) agencies.

"With one of the largest and most complex network environments in the world, the Department of Defense required access to the most robust and flexible network solutions available. DoD network capabilities must meet the challenges posed by the massive influx of data, devices and applications that defense organizations are supporting today," said Anthony Robbins, vice president of federal, Brocade. "Brocade realizes that maintaining uninterrupted network connectivity is essential to meeting DoD mission priorities, and we are proud to be included as part of the DoD UC-APL."
