Network planners today must expand and extend the range of services offered further into the edge of the network. This requires extending the intelligence and high-touch processing capabilities to the network edge - whether in a metro network, a campus network or in a data center. Challenge at the network edge is compounded by the need to flexibly define and easily manage customer services in an intuitive manner. Further, the expanding role of the converged network makes Quality of Service (QoS), resiliency and security crucial to the success of many rollouts.
To meet these challenges, the NetIron Carrier Ethernet Switch (CES) 2000 Series is purpose-built to offer flexible, resilient, secure and advanced services in a compact form factor. The Brocade NetIron CES 2000 Series is a compact 1 RU, multi-service edge/aggregation switch with a powerful set of capabilities that combine performance with rich functionality at the network edge. The NetIron CES 2000 Series switch offers network planners a broad set of high performance IPv4, Classic Layer 2, Provider Bridge (PB) and Provider Backbone Bridge (PBB) functionalities in the same device. With these capabilities, the NetIron CES 2000 Series addresses a diverse set of applications in metro edge networks, ISP networks, mobile backhaul networks, data centers, large enterprises, government networks and education/research.
