Brocade is a longstanding sponsor at NANOG, at NANOG 71 we’ll be hosting at the Beer and Gear on Tuesday October 3. The Product Management team in our Switching, Routing and Analytics BU will be meeting a host of customers all week long. We’ll discuss all the solutions are gaining traction in SP networks, colocation providers, and Internet and Cloud Exchanges, as well as other areas.
As always, the NANOG Program Committee is preparing a solid program. Among the key topics are network telemetry data collection and network automation, themes which dovetail entirely with our visibility and automation technologies.

And these applications demand ever-greater interface speeds, which explains why we’ve deployed well in excess of ten thousand 100Gbps interfaces into these networks. Brocade has long experience and knowledge in building technologies for IXPs, and we’re bringing data center costs to this growing market today.
