Feature a scale-out networking architecture to incrementally add port access when and where needed, in a cost-effective manner.
Leverage open standards-based technology to aggregate Brocade ICX switches into a single logical switch over distances up to 10km.
Reduce operational costs by consolidating management, eliminating network layers and individual switch touch points.
Maximise investment through shared network services that allow premium and entry-level switches to share advanced layer 2/3 network services.
