Cisco And Brocade Join Forces For Technology Development Agreement.
In the first phase of the technology agreement, the two companies will develop a Fibre Channel interface for Cisco's Catalyst 6000 family of multi- layer switches. In addition, Brocade and Cisco will certify the interoperability between Brocade SilkWorm Fibre Channel fabric switches with Cisco Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) products, which will enable SAN-to-SAN connectivity over fiber optic MANs.
Cisco and Brocade have also agreed to develop switch-to-switch connection products in the future to expand customers' options for connecting Brocade Fibre Channel-based SANs across Cisco networking infrastructures, supporting a variety of network interfaces. All products resulting from this agreement will be compliant with ANSI T11 standards.
