The Brocade FCX Series offers enterprise-class stackable Layer 2/3 edge switches with 24 or 48 GbE ports and optional 10 GbE uplinks, providing new levels of performance, scalability, and flexibility required for today’s enterprise campus and data center networks.

High-Performance Enterprise-Class Stackable Switches for the Network Edge

The Brocade FCX Series of switches provides new levels of performance, scalability, and flexibility required for today's enterprise campus and data center networks. With advanced capabilities, these switches deliver performance and intelligence to the network edge in a flexible 1U form factor that helps reduce infrastructure and administrative costs.

Designed for wire-speed and non-blocking performance, Brocade FCX Series switches include 24- and 48-port models, in both Power over Ethernet (PoE) and non-PoE versions. Utilizing Brocade IronStack technology, organizations can stack up to eight switches into a single logical switch with up to 384 ports, simplifying management in the network access layer. PoE models support the emerging Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) standard to deliver up to 30 watts of power to edge devices, enabling next-generation enterprise applications.

The Brocade FCX Series offers a comprehensive line of switches with specific models optimized for campus and data center deployments.

Highlights include:

  • Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) top-of-rack switch purpose-built for the data center
  • 24-ports model in compact 1U form factors
  • An optional 4-port 10 GbE module that enables wire-speed, end-to-end GbE performance across all ports
  • Brocade IronStack technology that enables horizontal stacking of switches, unifying network management for an entire row of servers
  • Reversible front-to-back airflow and redundant cooling fans to meet strict data center environmental requirements
  • Hardware-based sFlow traffic monitoring capabilities, with Brocade IronShield 360 providing real-time protection from network attacks
  • Protected by the Brocade Assurance Limited Lifetime Warranty for as long as the original purchaser continues to own and use the product
