Brocade ICX 7000 Family Switches

Flexible Scalability and Simplified Management

The Brocade ICX 7000 Family Switches are fixed form-factor switches that work together to deliver a complete, scalable, and reliable network solution. The low-latency, non-blocking architecture ensures excellent throughput for today’s demanding video, Unified Communications, VDI, and mobile applications. 

Stack up to 12 Brocade ICX Switches into a single logical switch using standard copper and optics over distances of 10 km to accommodate growth without service disruption:

  • Auto-provisioning of switches 
  • Easy insertion or replacement of stack members 
  • In Service Software Upgrade of the entire stack with no downtime 

Use Brocade Campus Fabric technology to create a resilient fabric and eliminate any single point of failure along with other important capabilities:

  • Consolidated management across multiple switch families to reduce maintenance time and costs
  • Shared network services delivers advanced services of premium core switches to entry-level access switches
  • Manage up to 36 access switches as a single, logical switch

Establish a foundation for a future SDN deployment. The switches can operate in hybrid-port mode, meaning they can run traditional protocols and OpenFlow-directed flows at the same time, providing a gradual transition to SDN without disruption.
