Service providers, more than ever, are looking for ways to reduce network operational costs while increasing new revenue streams through over-the-top services. Brocade NetIron CER 2000 series routers are purpose-built to help these providers save on space, power, and cooling while extending wire-speed IP and Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) services to the network edge without compromising performance.To help ensure high performance, all the ports are capable of forwarding IP and MPLS packets at wire speed without oversubscription. With less than 5 watts/Gbps of power consumption, service providers can push up to 136 Gbps of triple-play services through the NetIron CER 2000 while reducing their carbon footprint.A broad set of highly scalable IP unicast and multicast routing features, combined with a low total cost of ownership, makes the NetIron CER 2000 an ideal choice for service providers that want to deliver Layer 2 and Layer 3 business services through a single easy-to-manage platform.The Brocade NetIron CER 2000 series is a family of compact 1U routers that are purpose-built for high-performance Ethernet edge routing and MPLS applications. These fixed-form routers can store a complete Internet table and support advanced MPLS features such as Traffic Engineering and VPLS. They are ideal for supporting a wide range of applications in Metro Ethernet, data center and campus networks.
