As an industry, we need to turn more of our attention to service creation, launch, and adoption of virtualized managed services, designing them for the ultimate end users, to enable digital transformation.

Some of you may recognize the name Brocade. Yes, you may know Brocade as the leading supplier of data center networking products, and have heard of their IP connectivity and enterprise mobility solutions. But we’d like you to consider another side of Brocade -- a side deep-rooted in the enabling technologies currently shaping and redefining communication networks, namely Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV).

You can visit our booth (#400-402, right next to the Solutions Showcase area) to see demos of the Brocade SDN Controller with the Brocade Flow Optimizer application, running on the Brocade MLXe and ICX platforms. We will also be showing how to integrate OpenStack with the Brocade SDN Controller, using OVSDB southbound, as well as the Brocade vRouter.
In addition, visit the Tallac Networks booth to see a joint demo of its SDN LAN-as-a-service solution with the Brocade SDN Controller and Elbrys Networks SDN Application for K-12 Education environments.

Back in September, we announced the Brocade Vyatta Controller, a commercial package of the OpenDaylight controller. We did an initial release in November and since that time have been working with our early adopters to understand and respond to the full range of their needs.
The single biggest challenge for any organization looking at SDN is simply getting started, non-disruptively. That means not having to spring for a lot of new equipment, but it also means supporting the organization through a ramp-up in skillsets and a shift in processes. So we’ve spent a fair amount of time developing ancillary education and support services in addition to making it easy to acquire the controller in the first place.
