The way organizations communicate and conduct business has changed dramatically in the past decade. Services such as high-definition video streaming, cloud services, and anytime/anywhere connectivity not only consume an enormous amount of network capacity, but also create a greater degree of complexity for network operations. As a result, today's network planners are seeking solutions that provide the right mix of scalability, performance, operational simplicity, and cost-effectiveness.
The Brocade MLX Series of high performance routers is designed to meet these requirements and many others. The Brocade MLXe routers provide several enhancements to the product family, including rear exhaust for all chassis, timing capabilities for future applications, and higher slot capacity.
Built with a state-of-the-art, sixth-generation, network processor-based architecture and terabit-scale switch fabrics, the Brocade MLX Series provides a rich set of high performance IPv4, IPv6, and Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) capabilities as well as advanced Layer 2 switching capabilities. As a result, these routers address the diverse needs in environments that include service provider backbones, Metro Ethernet networks, transit/wholesale networks, Internet Service Providers (ISPs), Content Delivery Networks (CDNs), Internet Exchange Points (IXPs), data centers, and distributed enterprises.
