Networks, a Siemens Enterprise Communications company, announced the launch of its
OneFabric architecture, an unified network fabric to span from the data center
to the wired and wireless edge.
allows enterprises to provision the network end-to-end with consistent
performance and enhanced security for business-critical applications, all
managed from a single pane of glass.
is an open and standards-based architecture that provides simplicity,
scalability and control for complex IT environments, delivering a platform for
reducing network tiers, flattening data center networks, and creating a more
intelligent network infrastructure.
will offer customers flexible entry points to deploy OneFabric without
requiring a rip-and-replace of existing network infrastructure. Customers
are able to identify their immediate infrastructure needs and implement one or
more OneFabric solutions. OneFabric is able to coexist with existing
infrastructure investments while providing incremental value.
and distributed appliances are transforming every part of IT and to maximize
the potential of virtualization, the network must also transform. Our new
OneFabric architecture brings simplicity and scalability to the delivery of
business-critical applications, particularly in virtualized environments,”
said Chris Crowell, president and CEO at Enterasys
redefines what constitutes a fabric by providing a single architecture that
spans from the data center to the network edge, including wired, wireless,
mobile and cloud. Furthermore, OneFabric provides one network
environment, delivering one network experience, making predictable, reliable
application delivery simple,” Crowell added.
is also introducing OneFabric Control Center, a single pane of glass for the
unified management of an end-to-end fabric, including deep integration with
virtual infrastructure from VMware, Citrix and Microsoft to dramatically
improve network performance in virtualized data centers.
OneFabric deployment from Enterasys provides us with a secure, highly available
network spanning our unified wired/wireless edge to the data center,” said
Gaston Hebert, director of technical resources,
St. Edwards University.
Control Center provides us with ‘single pane of glass’ management enabling us
to automate provisioning for users, devices and applications. This allows
us to reduce the time it takes to deploy and support new systems and 21st
Century learning tools. OneFabric is helping St. Edward’s achieve its goal to
deliver a secure, open and collaborative environment for our students, faculty
and staff around the globe,” Hebert added.
