The Georgia Technology Centre (GTC), a live laboratory for network equipment vendors to demonstrate their networking hardware and software functionality, will deploy Brocade Communications Systems Inc.’s MLXe16 routers as the peering fabric in its Atlanta exchange.

As a new vendor partner of the GTC, Brocade  says it can leverage its partnership to demonstrate its Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Ethernet fabric technology. The Brocade MLX Series delivers 10 GbE and 100 GbE density for software-defined networks in conjunction with traditional routing.

The GTC was created and engineered to promote interoperability testing, live customer trials and demonstrations for equipment vendors.

“GTC is more than just a live laboratory — it represents actual technology deployment and implementation,” said Tom Ellery, vice president of sales in North America for Brocade. “The facility is top-notch and the GTC resource community is invaluable.”
