A joint venture between the University of Bristol and Bristol City Council, the Bristol Is Open project which delivers research and development initiatives designed to solve contemporary problems and contribute to the development of a smart city. To support a multitenant environment and potentially high volumes of data, Bristol Is Open needed a new kind of operating system and a robust network foundation. This case study looks at how Bristol Is Open used Brocade to deliver a services-and- applications emulation platform for its smart city experiments.
