Ethernet
 



Brocade MLX Series
 

Brocade MLX Series core routers deliver unprecedented scale and performance, high reliability, and operational efficiency for the most demanding service provider and enterprise networks. Built on a programmable architecture with high-density 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), 40 GbE, and 10 GbE routing, these routers meet massive bandwidth demands, while maximizing ROI. Leading OpenFlow 1.3 scale in hybrid port mode provides a seamless transition to SDN for increased network agility and programmatic control.
 


Brocade NetIron CER 2000 Series


Brocade NetIron CER 2000 Series compact routers are purpose-built for high-performance Ethernet edge routing, MPLS, and SDN. These 10 GbE-enabled fixed-form routers can store a complete Internet table and are ideal for supporting routing applications cost-effectively in Metro Ethernet, data center, and campus networks. In addition to providing unmatched route scalability in a flexible form, the NetIron CER 2000 supports OpenFlow, providing an SDN solution for programmatic control of the network.
