Posted on: June 4, 2008

Bangalore: Foundry Networks, a performance and solutions leader for end-to-end switching and routing, has announced that BIG Animation (India) -formerly known as AniRights Infomedia-, the animation arm of Reliance Group Company has installed Foundry's BigIron RX backbone and FastIron Series Layer 2/3 switches into its high-performance 10 gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) animation production network.

Foundry's latest customer in India, BIG Animation must remain on the cutting edge of technology to produce some of the most advanced and recognizable blockbuster animation effects seen worldwide. To maintain their leadership position, the company's production network requires extremely high performance and reliability levels to generate groundbreaking animation. They currently leverage a BigIron RX Series backbone switch and multiple FastIron family of compact layer 2/3 switches to back their 10GbE production network core. The BigIron RX switch, fitted with the MRJ21 line card modules, provides a high-density platform to deliver high performance connections to the artists, servers and redundant 10GbE uplinks. Their animation production network utilizes hundreds of processors to create a high performance computing (HPC) environment completely connected by Foundry networking solutions to create highly advanced visual effects.

Ashish S. K. CEO, BIG Animation (India), said, "We evaluated several competitive offerings from top networking vendors, before selecting Foundry Networks for our network infrastructure requirement. Since our network mandates superior performance and high scalability, it was important for us to partner with a technologically stronger networking vendor with a complete end-to-end solution set. Non-blocking and wire-speed performance at very high port densities are critical for us and Foundry provides us with more than double the 10GbE and 1GbE ports in a single shelf system than competing offerings. The high performance Ethernet infrastructure from Foundry currently deployed in our facility supports our current and future networking needs preparing us to expand our network capabilities as we expand operations."
