About Brocade:

Since 1995, Brocade has empowered government agencies to accomplish their missions through leading-edge networking solutions and modernized IT infrastructure.

Today, Brocade is helping agencies realize the benefits of cloud computing, mobility, and Big Data as they increase operational efficiency, offer new services to constituents, and reduce total cost of IT ownership. A key part of this strategy is enabling agencies to embrace the New IP, a modern approach to networking built on open, multivendor, user-driven, and software-centric infrastructure.

The New IP allows agencies to develop flexible networks that can easily adapt to meet the critical challenges of both today and tomorrow. Whether that involves simplifying access for citizens or empowering war fighters to complete their mission, Brocade delivers the networks that connect modern government with the world.
