Brocade deploys router for new high-speed research network platform

Brian Karlovsky | Sept. 1, 2014
Singapore Advanced Research and Education Network is set to deploy a Brocade SDN-ready router to power its SingAREN-Lighwave Internet Exchange - a 100 Gbps community network.

"SDN will enable the dynamic configuration of connections to deliver fast transit over 'clean pipes' for researchers and educators who need to transfer Big Data payloads across SingAREN and international research networks," he said. The Brocade MLXe-4 supports OpenFlow 1.— which allows programmatic control of the router by an SDN controller — in innovative Hybrid Port Mode.

This approach allows simultaneous deployment of traditional switching or routing with OpenFlow on a single port, a unique capability that provides SingAREN with a pragmatic path to SDN by enabling it to integrate OpenFlow into its existing network operations.
