Brocade introduces first phase of open networking strategy

Brocade introduces first phase of open networking strategy 

The Vyatta Platform incorporates Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and Software-Defined Networking (SDN) technologies based on open standards and open-source initiatives, and also utilizes core components, including the Brocade Vyatta vRouter and Brocade vADX products.

The platform’s architecture consist of three core layers: NFV Connection Services, SDN Structural Services and Functional Orchestration, each of which is modular and gives the customer the freedom to choose products and solutions that fit their individual needs.

“The growing complexity of today’s virtualized networks has made it no longer feasible to rely on a single vendor to deliver an end-to-end solution that fits every customer’s requirements of service agility and scalability,” said Kelly Herrell, VP and GM, Software Networking, Brocade. “The Brocade Vyatta Platform is the industry’s first truly open platform to embrace a growing vendor ecosystem dedicated to open standards and open source projects for cloud and telco providers seeking software-based solutions to achieve new revenue streams and regain control over their networks.”

Brocade says that because the platform is so open and modular, customers will have more flexibility and interoperability.

Moreover, customers will have greater control over each layer of their infrastructure, and will be able to reduce both CapEx and OpEx.

“Where individual SDN and NFV technologies will address specific problems, the platform approach will accelerate the full realization of a modern network model,” Herrell added. “Furthermore, in working with industry partners we will continue to build out the Brocade Vyatta Platform to advance interoperability and ensure the platform is carrier-grade.”
