Trunk Networks Selects Brocade to Help it Future-Proof Network Infrastructure

Trunk Networks announced that it has chosen Brocade to help it future-proof its infrastructure in anticipation of major increases in customer data and traffic flows. The deployment will be based on the company MLX Series core routers, which are designed to deliver scale and performance, high reliability and operational efficiency for the most demanding network environments. With a customer-focused portfolio of services designed to be a one-stop shop for IT services, Trunk Networks needed a network that would be able to cope with the future needs of its customers. Anticipating a significant increase in data volumes - with some predicting that global data volumes will grow from tenfold between 2013 and 2020 - as a result of business growth and changing customer requirements, in particular an increased preference for cloud-based software and applications, Trunk wanted to increase capacity and improve the performance of the network in order to future proof its infrastructure. A longstanding the company customer, Trunk's existing network was made up of NetIron CER compact routers and ICX stackable switches, which had been in place for several years. The new, chosen solution involved replacing half the network with the Brocade MLX Series core routers, and enhancing the remaining NetIron CERs in some sites with 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) interfaces, interconnected across the entire estate. Trunk Networks has been able to dramatically increase its bandwidth capacity and provide greater speed and performance for its hosted, cloud and ISP services. In 2015 Trunk Networks will continue to upgrade its network with the addition of load balancers and has plans to expand its metro area network and pod sites by creating and consolidating dark fiber links between London data centers.
