Global Convergence, Inc. Intensifies Intelligent SDN Control for Solution Provider Partners with Addition of Big Switch Networks to its Solutions Portfolio

Global Convergence Inc. NSM (Network Security Monitoring), Software Defined Data Center, and Open Infrastructure for the global IT channel, and Big Switch Networks® (Big Switch) announced a definitive new distribution agreement that adds Big Switch solutions to the GCI line card effective immediately. Big Switch enables data center transformation that accelerates business velocity by delivering a responsive, automated, and programmable software-defined networking (SDN)-based solution to solve for the new and changing challenges presented from digital disruption. Traditionally, the network has been viewed as the barrier to data center transformation as legacy networking architectures hinder IT organizations with brittle, complex and cumbersome switch-by-switch management paradigms and inflexible, proprietary hardware choices that are increasingly unable to keep up with the pace required of businesses today. Through this partnership, GCI will distribute both Big Monitoring Fabric (BMF) and Big Cloud Fabric (BCF) products. By combining open networking hardware, with an intelligent SDN-based data center switching fabric, Big Switch is bringing unmatched intelligence, agility, and flexibility to data centers that enables network owners to quickly deploy, automate, scale out, and monitor and secure their networks, while optimizing OpEx and CapEx.
