Foundry finds partners

GULFCOMMS appears to be paying serious dividends for Foundry Networks.

GULFCOMMS appears to be paying serious dividends for Foundry Networks.

As leading ICT companies continue to visit its stand en masse, the company has already announced some significant deals. Foundry said it has been selected by Microsoft to provide the software giant with its NetIron MLX Series 10 gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) IPv4/IPv6 MPLS routers for Microsoft's Enterprise Engineering Centre (EEC), a proving ground for the world's most complex computing environments in Redmond.

Foundry also announced a deal with Cyberia, one of the region's leading internet service providers (ISP), to upgrade its network in Saudi Arabia.

Cyberia selected Foundry's ServerIron 850 Plus application delivery switches to provide its network with added Layer 4 sessions, offering greater capacity to support its upgrade 10Gbps links.

Foundry's ServerIron 850 Plus is being used for transparent caching and load balancing, adding more capacity and redundancy to Cyberia's network backbone.

The new implementation successfully provides the 10Gbps connectivity the network required for its growing user base and emerging advanced applications in KSA. "Layer 4-7 application switches are purpose built for enterprise and service provider business-critical application infrastructures," says Farook Majeed, regional director for Foundry Networks in the Middle East.
