Why ThunderCat and Brocade

Information technology gets more complex every minute. And yet, Federal agencies – pressed by legislation, buried by regulation, and shackled by legacy systems – will only face additional complexity going forward.

ThunderCat, in partnership with Brocade, empowers government agencies to accomplish their missions through leading-edge networking solutions. Today, that means transitioning to an open, multivendor, software-centric New IP infrastructure.

Implementing the New IP will let agencies embrace Third Platform technologies that improve collaboration and speed service delivery to constituents. Studies project that modernizing network systems and procurement strategies can save federal IT organizations up to $7 billion over the next five years.

The ability to transition gradually to a modernized architecture that is flexible, cost-effective, and adaptable to future needs leaves little argument for retaining the static, proprietary and hierarchical hardware-centric networks used throughout the federal government today. It’s time to launch a new era in federal IT. It’s time for the New IP.
