SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Brocade® (Nasdaq:BRCD) today unveiled three new blades designed to seamlessly integrate into its two flagship platforms, the Brocade NetIron MLX Series and the Brocade DCX Backbone. These new blades offer industry-leading wire-speed performance and density to address increasing traffic in service provider networks and booming server virtualization adoption in data centers. The new blades reinforce Brocade’s commitment to continuous networking innovation while also preserving customers’ investments in their existing network infrastructures.

Brocade achieved this milestone in performance and density with the new Brocade 8×10G-M Series Blade for Carrier Ethernet networks and 8×10G-D Series Blade for the data center. These two new blades double the wire-speed 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) density for the NetIron MLX to 256 ports on a single chassis. Brocade also unveiled the new 64-port 8 Gigabits per second (Gbps) blade for the Brocade DCX. The Brocade FC8-64 Blade is the industry’s highest performance blade, delivering wire-speed density of up to 512 ports per chassis.

“Brocade continues to deliver unmatched performance and density across all networking environments. With our customer-driven focus, we are investing in existing flagship platforms, while accelerating development of advanced technologies such as 100 GbE,” said Ken Cheng, vice president of service provider products for Brocade. “In fact, Brocade recently hosted a summit with key customers to discuss the deployment of 100 GbE technology for high-performance networking applications. Based on the success of this summit, Brocade has begun taking early orders for our 100 GbE-based products.”
