Viavi and Brocade Deliver Highly Scalable Subscriber Data Analytics Solution for Mobile Operators

xSIGHT Targeted Subscriber Search, Powered by Brocade Packet Broker, in Production at U.S. Tier-1 Mobile Operator

MILPITAS, CA and SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 28, 2016) -  Viavi Solutions (NASDAQ: VIAV) and Brocade (NASDAQ: BRCD) today announced a joint solution that enables mobile operators to capture and analyze subscriber data to quickly resolve quality of experience (QoE) issues. An industry-first solution, Viavi's xSIGHT Targeted Subscriber Search (TSS) leverages the Brocade Packet Broker and Brocade Session Director to filter and deliver targeted subscriber traffic so only the data required to resolve customer experience problems is forwarded to xSIGHT TSS. In addition to significantly reducing resolution time for QoE issues, the solution enables mobile operators to open up opportunities for new value-added services. Viavi and Brocade developed this highly scalable solution to dynamically optimize the visibility of mobile networks. The joint solution is in production at a U.S. Tier-1 mobile operator to help provide better QoE to their subscribers and enable new premium services. As subscribers increase network usage through more diverse devices and applications, the conditions for optimal QoE become more complex and unpredictable. Mobile operators are trying to improve the subscriber experience by allocating network resources based on application-specific requirements. This approach requires rapid analysis of network performance and subscriber QoE. Gathering data in trace files for full seven-layer analysis can take hours for each subscriber via traditional assurance systems. This length of time makes proper analysis prohibitively difficult as the capture received may no longer be relevant. The xSIGHT TSS and Brocade Packet Broker address this operational inefficiency by targeting specific subscribers -- for example, VIPs or corporate customers covered by SLAs -- and capturing correlated control and user plane traffic, at a scale applicable to a Tier-1 mobile network. By reducing the average time spent gathering end-to-end subscriber traces from several hours to minutes, xSIGHT TSS and the Brocade Packet Broker can save mobile carriers up to tens of thousands of labor hours per year. xSIGHT is Viavi's customer experience assurance portfolio including an analytics platform fed by agents distributed throughout the network. The agents passively analyze traffic in real time, build network and application performance metrics and selectively store traffic for troubleshooting purposes. xSIGHT TSS is an agent which can be programmed to capture all control and user plane data for targeted subscribers defined by the service provider. The Brocade Packet Broker helps to scale the capacity of the xSIGHT solution to thousands of dynamically targeted subscribers per TSS, with programmability of all dynamic rules and filters with less than 1 ms latency, a critical requirement for today's mobile provider networks. "As mobile operators chart the course to 5G and re-architect their networks to software-based, virtualized, and open New IP architectures, their visibility and analytics infrastructure needs to follow suit," said Kevin Shatzkamer, chief technology officer of mobile networking, Brocade. "With solutions from Brocade and Viavi, mobile subscribers can rest assured that networks are monitored, key performance indicators are measured, and service level agreements are provided to meet their growing need for reliable mobile communications. This allows operators to efficiently manage the consumption of Internet and video services as well as Internet of Things and machine-to-machine (M2M) connections." "Network traffic is pushing mobile service providers to the limits of technology and human capabilities, and they are seeking efficiency in order to maximize productivity of their resources," said Sameh Yamany, Chief Technology Officer, Viavi Solutions. "To stay ahead of the compounding challenges in front of the industry, an ecosystem approach becomes increasingly essential. We are delighted to collaborate with Brocade in this successful implementation with one of the world's largest carriers."  About Brocade

Brocade and Harris Corporation Form Strategic Partnership to Deliver Cybersecurity Solutions

Initial Solution Will Enable Highly Scalable Cyber Maneuver for Federal Agencies and Financial Institutions

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - Jun 14, 2016) - At Federal Forum 2016, Brocade (NASDAQ: BRCD) and Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS) today announced that they have formed a strategic partnership designed to deliver cybersecurity solutions for advanced protection of an organization's critical assets. Brocade and Harris intend to jointly develop new solutions integrating Harris cybersecurity technology and Brocade's software-defined networking (SDN) capabilities. The companies are previewing a proof-of-concept solution today at Federal Forum demonstrating how highly scalable cyber maneuvers allow organizations to thwart cyberattacks on critical assets. This solution will be focused on meeting the needs of key market verticals including government, financial services, healthcare, energy, oil and gas, retail and service providers. Brocade and Harris expect to create additional solutions to address other cybersecurity challenges as the partnership progresses. As cybersecurity continues to take on a more significant role in the framework of national security, IDC Government Insights reports1 that federal IT spending for national security and police or emergency services will increase at a CAGR of 9.3 percent, from $3.7 billion in 2015 to 5.7 billion in 2020. "Strengthening the cybersecurity of federal and financial networks is one of the most important challenges facing our nation," said Ken Cheng, chief technology officer, Brocade. "Together with Harris, we will develop new solutions that leverage New IP architectures, providing a secure and automated network to improve federal agencies' and financial institutions' resilience to cyberattacks." Among U.S. companies, 91 percent have been hit by a cyber threat2 and across the globe, the number of costly data breach incidents continues to increase. Cybercrime incidents are also more sophisticated, with hackers spending an average of 205 days in compromised systems before being discovered. "The increasing number and impact of cybersecurity incidents demonstrate that continuously confronting cyber threats must remain a strategic priority for organizations of all sizes in every industry," said Carl D'Alessandro, president, Harris Critical Networks. "Our strategic partnership with Brocade will allow us to extend our expertise in protecting government assets to other markets."

Brocade Completes Acquisition of Ruckus Wireless

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - May 27, 2016) - Brocade (NASDAQ: BRCD) today announced that it has completed its acquisition of Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Ruckus Wireless™. This represents an important step in Brocade's strategic vision to build a pure-play networking company that supports the rapidly evolving requirements of the digital transformation era. The combination expands the breadth of Brocade's portfolio of market-leading storage networking and IP networking solutions by adding high-performance wireless hardware and software products. Wireless is a critical access technology for modern New IP network architectures and is a natural extension of Brocade's advanced offering of fabrics, software-based virtualization, network analytics and mobile networking solutions. Growth in mobility is driving exponential increases in connected devices and data, and fueling the need for greater analytics capabilities and more pervasive security across the network. The combined company's expertise and technology leadership in carrier-grade wireless, virtual Evolved Packet Core, mobile edge computing, and network visibility further strengthens the disruptive mobility strategy that Brocade announced in February. It also positions the company to provide differentiated solutions and scale-out capabilities in support of emerging opportunities, such as OpenG™ technology and 5G services, Internet of Things (IoT), and smart cities. "The combined company will be able to deliver superior focus and speed of innovation and best-in-class solutions spanning the full spectrum of networking," said Lloyd Carney, Brocade CEO. "Our combined world-class portfolio now provides customers with greater flexibility in meeting today's infrastructure requirements, including high performance, flexible, secure access networks. We are thrilled to welcome the Ruckus team to Brocade and look forward to working together to help our customers transform their networks into an open platform for business innovation." "Together, Ruckus and Brocade create a unique and exemplary leader in networking across the global market," said Selina Lo, CEO, Ruckus Wireless Business Unit at Brocade. Both companies have pursued a similar vision for modern networks built on open systems, network virtualization and ubiquitous mobility. Our combined product portfolio offers numerous leverage points for continuous integration and innovation in the future. The Ruckus team is excited to join Brocade to drive our roadmap further and to jointly deliver innovative, value-added solutions that fulfill the wired and wireless needs of our customers." Exchange Offer Information

The exchange offer to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Ruckus common stock in exchange for $6.45 in cash and 0.75 of a share of Brocade common stock (together with cash in lieu of any fractional share of Brocade common stock) per share, in each case, without interest and less any applicable withholding, expired at 12:00 midnight, Eastern time, at the end of May 26, 2016. The depositary for the exchange offer has informed Brocade that a total of 53,714,146 shares of Ruckus common stock, representing approximately 58.3% of Ruckus' outstanding shares of common stock, were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn pursuant to the exchange offer. All shares that were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn in the exchange offer have been accepted for payment in accordance with the terms of the exchange offer and applicable law. Following its acceptance of the shares tendered in the exchange offer, on May 27, 2016, Brocade caused the previously agreed merger of its subsidiary with and into Ruckus, with Ruckus continuing as the surviving corporation. As a result of the merger, Ruckus became a wholly owned subsidiary of Brocade. Under Section 251(h) of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the "DGCL"), no vote of Ruckus' stockholders was required to consummate the merger. In connection with the merger, all shares of Ruckus common stock not validly tendered into and accepted in the exchange offer, other than shares of Ruckus common stock with respect to which appraisal rights under the DGCL had been properly exercised and shares of Ruckus common stock owned, directly or indirectly, by Brocade or Ruckus (including shares held as treasury stock or otherwise), were cancelled and converted into the right to receive the merger consideration in the same amounts offered in the exchange offer. As a result of the acquisition, Ruckus shares will cease to be traded on the New York Stock Exchange. In connection with the exchange offer and the merger, Brocade entered into a Credit Agreement with Wells Fargo Bank, Deutsche Bank AG New York Branch, SunTrust Bank and certain other lenders. Pursuant to the Credit Agreement, the lenders have provided Brocade with a term loan facility of $800 million, the proceeds of which are being used to finance a portion of the exchange offer and the merger, and a revolving credit facility of $100 million, which is available to finance ongoing working capital requirements and other general corporate purposes of Brocade. The proceeds of both the term loan facility and the revolving credit facility may also be used to finance the repurchase of Brocade shares following the consummation of the exchange offer and the merger.  About Brocade
