INDIA: To provide the agile, application and services-centric campus network organizations need, Brocade has delivered the Brocade HyperEdge architecture, an evolutionary approach to campus network design.
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.
Brocade 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.
According to IDC, mobile workers will account for more than a third of the overall global workforce within the next few years, 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.
A cornerstone of The Effortless Network vision, the Brocade HyperEdge Architecture provides unmatched levels of network agility and automation. It delivers a campus environment that can quickly and easily scale and respond to the demands of increased user mobility, while delivering instant access to services and applications.
