PacketLight Receives Certification

TEL-AVIV, Israel -- PacketLight Networks announced today that the recently-launched PL-400 has been verified by Brocade Communications Systems Inc. as compatible with Brocade-based Storage Area Networking (SAN) infrastructure, according to the testing requirements of the Brocade Data Center Ready Program. The program is an initiative designed to foster SAN interoperability in multi-vendor Brocade-based SAN environments. PacketLight's certification with Brocade follows on recent success in similar interoperability testing with IBM.

Testing was conducted at the Brocade Data Center Ready labs, which are state-of-the-art facilities supporting end-to-end interoperability and performance testing of SAN products in multi-vendor and large fabric SAN environments. The Brocade Data Center Ready Program boasts an impressive collection of members since its launch in 2000.

Achieving Brocade Data Center Ready certification for the PL-400 is a major milestone for us in our commitment to delivering certified SAN extension solutions for our customers," said Koby Reshef, PacketLight Vice President of Marketing. “With eight 4G FC [Fibre Channel] ports and layer 2 performance monitors for GbE [Gigabit Ethernet] and FC, the PL-400 is a perfect solution for connecting SANs and LANs. We have seen a great level of interest by many partners in this product, for these as well as additional applications such as video transport.”
