In China, Brocade and Guiyang High-Tech Industrial Investment Group Co., Ltd (HTII), announced the signing this week of a joint venture agreement to establish Guizhou Huiling Technology Co., Ltd. (GHTC). The joint venture combines Brocade’s leading data centre networking solutions with Guiyang’s leadership and innovation in Big Data to help customers modernise and transform their networks into platforms for business innovation. GHTC is 51 percent owned by HTII and 49 percent owned by Brocade, and is headquartered in Guiyang - the capital city of Guizhou, China.
The new company will deliver Brocade® IP networking solutions and services, including switches, routers, and storage networking infrastructure to the local government as well as state-owned organizations, universities, and enterprises. GHTC will also support local R&D efforts and will work with the local government and its partners as well as Brocade, to develop high-tech talent in the region. GHTC will become a member of the Guizhou Big Data Industry Alliance for technology transfer and deployment.
Capitalising on Brocade’s leadership in New IP networking solutions—including software-defined networking, network functions virtualization, network visibility, and mobile networking solutions—GHTC will play a crucial role in the establishment of the Guizhou Network Virtualization Research and Training Center. The centre will provide local R&D support to customers and deliver network virtualization training for universities and enterprises.
