It’s a known fact that the reason a modern racecar can be driven so fast is because of better brakes. In networking, the insight and control provided by a single management console are the brakes that drive high performance. The proliferation of mobile devices and BYOD requires any enterprise network to have top performing Wi-Fi. But it is a myth that you can use Wi-Fi everywhere, and the fact is that you need a high performing wired/wireless solution. If you want a high-performance network – and let’s face it, who doesn’t – you cannot achieve it with a single wired or wireless solution. In fact, you cannot achieve it with a single vendor solution. Having a better dashboard is required to keep you on the road. With the release of Brocade Network Advisor 14.0 (BNA), you have the insight and control needed to manage a top performing wired/wireless network. Within a single-site or multi-site campus, Ruckus Wireless controllers and access points can now be discovered and monitored by BNA 14.0 from Brocade. BNA provides a single pane of glass for the highest performing networks in the enterprise. Brocade wired and Ruckus wireless solutions are now combined into a tightly integrated end-to-end solution. With this single management console, customers quickly collect metrics and traffic flows to detect issues and expedite trouble-shooting.
