Expanding its NVF product portfolio, Brocade Vyatta 5600 vRouter brings an impressive performance boost for Telcos and Service Providers. As the first virtual router for telco-class networks, the Brocade Vyatta 5600 is up to 40 times faster than competitive virtual routing products.
Network centric x86 servers delivers outstanding packet processing capabilities and are increasingly populated with10GbE Network Interface Cards (NICs) to accommodate data traffic growth. The Brocade Vyatta 5600 enables telcos and large service providers to harness this extremely cost-efficient networking power by leveraging software instead of deploying traditional purpose-built hardware.
Kelly Herrell, Vice President and General Manager, Software Networking Business at Brocade says, “In proof-of-concept tests with large carriers, we are seeing a CapEx savings potential of 90 percent or more when replacing purpose-built hardware with a high-performance x86 server and the Brocade Vyatta vRouter. This system architecture shift is central to the larger pursuit of NFV architectures where CapEx and OpEx advantages go hand-in-hand with radical improvements in network service agility and time-to-service.”
Complimenting the industry leading Vyatta 5400 family, the solution addresses use cases such as BGP routing, ACL offload and Virtual BGP Route Reflection, among others and is currently in limited availability and scheduled for general availability at the end of 2013.
The new solution complements the Brocade Vyatta 5400 vRouter product family, which is designed for Cloud Service Providers (CSPs).
