Foundry at Interop: New Modules, Green Award
May 1, 2008
I had the opportunity to meet with Foundry Networks at Interop this week, to discuss their latest offerings, a pair of high-density interface modules to its data center switching and routing product lines, the BigIron RX Series switches and the NetIron MLX Series routers.
The new modules will reportedly allow the BigIron RX Series switches and the NetIron MLX Series routers to deliver the industry’s highest 10 gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) and gigabit Ethernet (GbE) density of up to 512 ports of 10GbE and 1,536 ports of GbE in a single system.
The news of the new modules came on the heels of Foundry’s announcement of a new vision for advancing the data center based upon four key pillars: performance, virtualization, convergence and efficiency.
Foundry also was awarded the first-ever Interop Green Award. According to a release on Foundry’s site, the company was “…singled out for its ability to deliver industry-leading performance while minimizing power, space and cooling consumption in its switching, routing and application delivery controller (ADC) product set and solutions.”
