Incorporating new technologies, such as software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV), can provide improved network functions, management and operations. There are a number of challenges to achieving digital transformation, but intelligent automation can better enable agencies to adopt SDN and NFV into their infrastructure.

Moving to software-defined networking (SDN) can help defense agencies improve mission responsiveness and decrease costs. Learn how.
I get asked about software-defined networks (SDN) quite often and at this point I sort of expect that most people have no idea what it means. Yeah they can explain that SDN stands for Software Defined Networking, but then they quickly go on a rant explaining the virtues of OpenFlow and how managing physical switches... Read more »
Learn what hyperconvergence is and how it can help your agency increase operational and IT efficiency.
The challenge most technologists face is how best to support a dynamic network when many of their processes are not automated. But a promising solution to address this growing challenge has emerged in the form of software-defined networking (SDN).
Cloud, mobility, the Internet of Things – these transformative technologies mandate government agencies rethink their IT strategies. Now, more than ever before, the federal government needs to rapidly deploy innovative capabilities to support a more connected and automated environment. A growing number of connections and a steadily rising influx of data to manage are creating... Read more »
On August 13, Brocade co-hosted the 2014 Federal Forum with MeriTalk, bringing together leaders in government and industry to talk about changing the network conversation to bring the federal government into the 21st century. Change can be scary, especially to a community as risk-averse as the federal government – but change is also necessary –... Read more »
This post was originally published by Anthony Robbins, VP Federal, Brocade, here. You might have heard about Brocade’s recent acquisition of a company called Vyatta. Vyatta is built on the fact that software-based networking is a critical component in network virtualization, and that software networking will actually transform those same networks into innovation platforms. The... Read more »
