STOCKHOLM -- Transmode announced today that the TS-1100 C/DWDM platform has been verified by Brocade as interoperable with Brocade-based Storage Area Networking (SAN) infrastructure, according to the testing requirements of the Brocade Fabric Aware Program, an end-to-end interoperability initiative for SANs. The program is a comprehensive testing and configuration initiative designed to foster SAN interoperability in multi-vendor Brocade-based SAN environments.

Testing was conducted at the Brocade interoperability labs, which are state-of-the-art facilities supporting end-to-end interoperability and performance testing of SAN products in multi-vendor and large fabric SAN environments. The Brocade Fabric Aware Program has added more than fifty members since its launch in 2000. In addition, as part of its investment in SAN interoperability, Brocade actively supports its members' interoperability initiatives.

"Certification with Brocade is an important step in our expansion into the SAN market and further enhances our solutions for these applications," said Magnus Öberg, Transmode's Chief Technology Officer. "Storage area networking is a rapidly growing market and contributes considerably to our overall sales, so we are pleased to have passed this certification, as are our customers."

The TS-1100 platform is a cost-optimised, "plug-and-forget" WDM solution that is ideally suited to Enterprises and other direct users deploying their own networks over leased fibre. Furthermore, the low cost, operational simplicity, broad service support and pay-as-you-grow architecture of the TS-1100 means it is equally well suited to Network Operators and Service Providers deploying Carrier Managed Services to this same group of users.

"We are pleased that Transmode has successfully completed the Fabric Aware testing with Brocade fabric switches in multi-vendor SAN environments," said Jay Kidd, Brocade CTO, Infrastructure Systems Group. "Storage area networks are being deployed worldwide at a rapid rate as a scalable, high performance networking foundation for storage environments. The Fabric Aware program is an example of our continued commitment to delivering end-to-end interoperability to SAN customers."
