Today we are pleased to announce the availability of our pioneering HyperEdge Architecture, which provides a holistic wired and wireless edge infrastructure and supports the next phase in delivering “The Effortless Network” to customers. Read more below...
By automating and simplifying the campus network, and creating a holistic wired and wireless infrastructure, the Brocade HyperEdge Architecture enables organizations to harness the productivity gains and competitive edge that mobility, cloud-enabled services and new applications can offer.
According to IDC, mobile workers1 will account for more than a third of the overall global workforce within the next few years2, and the adoption of services and applications to aid collaboration and increase productivity continue to grow. In addition, the deployment of virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), Unified Communications (UC) and the increased use of video for business communications place additional burdens on current campus networks. Unfortunately, these overly complex, rigid, legacy campus networks are unable to support modern requirements for fast application deployment, instant information access and multi-device mobility.
“With more users dependent on services delivered over the network, an agile and resilient campus network is crucial to business productivity. If the campus network cannot support the organization’s application needs, the ability to compete, transform and even to perform can be impaired. Solutions such as Brocade HyperEdge Architecture help flatten the network and deliver automation to simplify deployment and manageability while delivering greater flexibility, making it easier and faster to deploy business critical applications that can scale, ” said Rohit Mehra, VP Network Infrastructure, IDC
We have also announced the general availability of the Brocade HyperEdge features announced in 2012, including Distributed Services and Consolidated Management, along with additions and enhancements to the Brocade wired and wireless campus product portfolio. The new HyperEdge features include Centralized Access Point (AP) management, Distributed AP Forwarding, Self-healing Brocade Mobility APs and Active-Active links within individual and scaled HyperEdge Domains.
