Service providers today are focused on transforming their networks and business models to operate more efficiently and profitably. To meet these challenges, service providers need to extend their reach and offer differentiated services while reducing both cost and complexity.

The Brocade® 6910 Ethernet Access Switch provides a flexible, easyto-deploy solution to address these challenges. Optimized for pureplay Ethernet access within metro areas, the Brocade 6910 supports applications for business Ethernet services, mobile backhaul, and nextgeneration broadband offerings. In addition, it offers an energy-efficient and small form-factor solution that extends wire-speed Ethernet services to the network edge without compromising on reliability.

The Brocade 6910 helps service providers reduce operational costs by providing greater flexibility and efficiency. In addition to supporting multiple fiber or copper configurations on a single switch, it allows the same ports to be configured to connect directly to the customer or as a network interface on the service side. This ideally positions the Brocade 6910 at the edge of a broadband access network for Ethernet service demarcation, access, and aggregation—enabling service providers to economically deliver high-value Ethernet services.
