SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/17/13 --  Today Brocade (NASDAQ:
BRCD) announced that the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA)
has approved the Brocade(R) MLX(R) and MLXe 100 Gigabit Ethernet
(GbE) networking solutions to be added to the Unified Capabilities -
Approved Products List (UC-APL). The objective of the UC-APL is to
provide a consolidated list of products that have completed
Interoperability (IO) and Information Assurance (IA) certification.
The newly certified Brocade networking solutions provide Department
of Defense (DoD) agencies with greater capabilities for
virtualization and previously unavailable levels of network
performance, reliability and efficiency.  
The addition of the Brocade MLX and MLXe 100 GbE networking solutions
to the DoD's options for Assured Services Local Area Networks (AS
LAN) will help improve the robustness of the DoD's networks and
create additional architectural flexibility. With the Brocade
solutions, network managers will have more control and visibility
over data flows to help ensure more effective response to the changes
in network traffic and data.  
"With one of the largest and most complex network environments in the
world, the Department of Defense required access to the most robust
and flexible network solutions available. DoD network capabilities
must meet the challenges posed by the massive influx of data, devices
and applications that defense organizations are supporting today,"
said Anthony Robbins, vice president of federal, Brocade. "Brocade
realizes that maintaining uninterrupted network connectivity is
essential to meeting DoD mission priorities, and we are proud to be
included as part of the DoD UC-APL." 
With the installation of Brocade MLX Series routers, defense
customers can securely deploy and utilize interoperable,
cloud-optimized networks. In addition, they can easily build a path
for software-defined network (SDN) environments in the future.
