Brocade introduced its HyperEdge network architecture in 2012 and is now expanding on the effort. HyperEdge leverages Brocade’s hardware and software to enable a more centralized point of control for the network.
Brocade is expanding HyperEdge with a trio of new WLAN access points. The Brocade Mobility 1220 and 1240 are new 802.11n access points delivering up to 450 Mbps of throughput. At the top end of the portfolio is the Brocade Mobility 1250 Access Point, equipped with support for the new 802.11ac wireless standard. 802.11ac offers the promise of 1 Gbps of wireless throughput.
In support of the new access points, Brocade also offers the new RFS9510 controller, which will support as many as 10,240 access points.
