Brocade launches Open Mobility Solutions Program

Brocade has launched its Open Mobility Solutions Program designed to assure customers that their current, and future, wireless networks will perform well when running on a Brocade wired network infrastructure.

This program addresses the need for advanced future-proof capabilities to support growth and new technologies, such as Software-Defined Networking (SDN), while offering customers a unified wired and wireless experience through strategic partnerships with leading wireless network vendors.

To address advances in wireless technology that have pushed wired networks to their limit—such as increased speeds and the increased number of devices supported by each access point—Brocade campus networking solutions provide a best-in-class foundation for wireless networks. Based on open standards technology, Brocade wired networking solutions are designed to interoperate smoothly with whatever wireless network technology customers decide to purchase in the future. To help ensure compatibility, Brocade has recently completed third-party certification testing with the leading wireless network vendors, including Aerohive, Aruba, and Ruckus.

A key tenet of the Open Mobility Solutions Program is to provide customers with a consistent management and user experience across wired and wireless environments. To achieve this, Brocade has collaborated with best-in-class wireless partners to integrate the Brocade ICX0 switches with their solutions.

“The Brocade Open Mobility Solutions Program was created to deliver a best-in-class wired foundation for wireless networks and to optimize customers’ campus network environments,” said Jason Nolet, senior vice president of the Switching, Routing, and Analytics Products Group at Brocade.
“Brocade pioneered this approach with Aruba Networks based on an open and interoperable framework, and our Open Mobility Solutions Program is now ready to expand to a broader set of partners. We are pleased to announce that Aerohive and Ruckus are joining our program in recognition that together we can provide unique added value to our customers—a combined solution with a consistent experience across the wired and wireless networks.”
