The Brocade ICX 6610 Switch redefines the economics of enterprise networking by providing unprecedented levels of performance, availability, and flexibility in a stackable form factor—delivering the capabilities of a chassis with the flexibility and cost-effectiveness of a stackable switch.
Chassis-Like Capabilities in a Stackable Form Factor:
Today's enterprise campus networks are expected to deliver services thought impossible just a few years ago. High-Definition (HD) video conferencing, real-time collaboration, Unified Communications (UC), and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) are only a few of the applications that organizations are deploying to enhance employee productivity, improve customer service, and create a competitive advantage. These same networks must also provide anytime, anywhere mobile access and scale to meet rising user expectations. At the same time, organizations face continued pressure to reduce costs and do more with less. More than ever, campus networks need to quickly and efficiently evolve with the ever-changing business environment.
Additional highlights include:
Delivers chassis-level performance and availability, providing an optimal user experience for streaming video, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), Unified Communications (UC), and other mission-critical campus applications
Offers unprecedented stacking performance with 320 Gbps of stacking bandwidth, eliminating the need to work around inter-switch bottlenecks
Provides up to 1 Tbps of total switching capacity with up to 384 1 GbE and 64 10 GbE per stack for campus network edge and aggregation layers
Provides unmatched availability with four fully redundant 40 Gbps stacking ports per switch, hitless stacking failover, hot switch replacement, and dual hot-swappable power supplies and fan assemblies
Simplifies network operations and protects investments with Brocade HyperEdge™ technology*, enabling single-point network lifecycle management and advanced services sharing across a heterogeneous stack
Offers up to eight "pay-as-you-need" 10 GbE ports activated through software licensing
