Innovation for campus LAN
"The need to keep up with the speed of change in ICT in the education sector is helped by our Effortless Network vision, which drives all our solutions," said Brocade Malaysia country manager, Sean Ong. "The Effortless Network is based on three main pillars."
- Dramatically simplified and automated access layer networks to significantly reduce operational overhead and enable IT to respond to business needs in real-time
- Unmatched scalability and upgradeability to accommodate emerging applications and IT imperatives for the next decade, extending the life of the network infrastructure
- No-compromise solutions that deliver enterprise-class functionality and availability at tremendous business value
"This vision is also based on the new Brocade HyperEdge technology, which is designed to deliver new levels of automation and simplification of the campus LAN lifecycle-with significant cost savings and investment protection," said Ong. "Brocade also introduced two additions to the Brocade ICX switch family to support the company's advancements in campus LAN technology."
He said the new technology and network switches [ICX 6430 and ICX 6450] through a single point management layer can lower administrative costs and offer capital expenditure cost savings of up to 50 percent. "The Brocade ICX switch family also helps campus LAN managers to cope with the BYOD [bring your own device] trend, as well as virtualisation initiatives across the enterprise, and rising video traffic through single-point management."
