Proven DCI Solutions for Brocade Networking

Data centre interconnection (DCI) is crucial for enterprises with mission-critical workloads. According to Broadcom, 96% of global banks, airlines, healthcare providers, pharmaceutical companies, and retailers use Fibre Channel (FC) for their most critical operations because of its unparalleled security and reliability. Brocade switches, whether sold by Brocade or through OEM partners have been the backbone of FC networks for generations. The importance of a reliable DCI solution that seamlessly integrates with Brocade cannot be overstated.

Solutions like Smartoptics for Brocade networking ensure minimal risk of downtime, the lowest latency and the fastest error resolution. This reliability is important for industries where even a minor disruption can result in significant liabilities. For instance, a bank or airline facing DCI downtime during a disaster could incur substantial financial and reputational damage.

Consistency and Compatibility Across Platforms

One of the key advantages of solutions like Smartoptics is their compatibility across different purchasing channels. Whether enterprises buy Brocade SAN switches directly from Broadcom or through OEM partners, they can rely on the same performance and benefits from using Smartoptics to interconnect them. This flexibility ensures that enterprises can maintain consistent performance and reliability regardless of their procurement choices. Several leading distributors globally offer both Brocade SAN switches and Smartoptics’ embedded transceivers and open line systems, further simplifying the integration process for enterprises.
