Brocade launches Cloud optimized switches to create new services

Telecom Lead Team:
Brocade has announced software
advancements to its ServerIron ADX Series of cloud-optimized
application delivery switches designed to help customers gain greater
application control and service scalability.

The new
Brocade OpenScript engine allows Brocade ADX customers to customize their
service delivery for improved scalability and performance.

The company
claimed that together with the OpenScript community, tools to enhance
network management and performance enhancements to IPv6, this comprehensive set
of new capabilities increases the competitiveness of the entire Brocade ADX
Series of application delivery switches.


“With the
Brocade ServerIron ADX, we look forward to continuing our success with the
platform and implementing stable, customizable traffic management capabilities
so that our new and existing customers can maintain greater application
control,” said Rob Jackson, solution line leader for networking and security at

To foster
innovation and enable the deployment of advanced capabilities in production
environments, it has introduced the OpenScript engine, a scalable and
deterministic application scripting engine that allows network operators to
customize the capabilities of their network to match their specific needs.

The OpenScript engine Built on PERL, a powerful and
widely-accepted standards-based programming language, which provides the
programming framework for network operators to develop customized traffic
management capabilities.


“A service provider’s critical asset is its network; this
makes reliability, scalability and performance critical factors for its
success. The importance to predetermine the impact network load on their
application delivery infrastructure is becoming critical as service providers
not only create new revenue generating services but also mitigate network
implications before any traffic passes through their application delivery
infrastructure,” said Alan Weckel, senior director for Dell’Oro Group.


ADX version 12.4 doubles the IPv6 performance of ADX and delivers
consistent services across IPv4 and IPv6. The Brocade ADX switch also enables a
seamless transition to IPv6 while preserving IPv4 assets through
standards-based IPv4-to-IPv6 translation technology.


Recently, Polaris Financial Technology, a global financial technology company, deployed
new switching infrastructure from Brocade within its campus and data center
