The Brocade® FCX 624 and 648 Switches provide new levels of performance, flexibility, and manageability required for today’s growing enterprise data centers. Featuring advanced capabilities and a purpose-built design, these switches support modern data center architectures where wire-speed performance and cost reduction are both high priorities. In fact, the innovative design doubles the number of 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) connections between network layers, making the switches ideal for highly utilized virtual data centers.

These 24- and 48-port data center switches feature four ports of 10 GbE capabilities and reversible front-to-back airflow. Utilizing Brocade IronStack technology, organizations can horizontally stack up to eight top-of-rack switches into a single logical switch, simplifying management in the network access layer


  • Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) top-of-rack switch purpose-built for the data center
  • 48-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
