Seeking better ways to build clouds and virtualized data centers, today’s IT organizations are turning to highperformance networking solutions that increase flexibility through leading-edge technologies. The Brocade® VDX® 6710 Switch is a high-performance 1 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) fixed configuration switch that provides a reliable, scalable, and flexible foundation for supporting the most demanding business applications. It features 48 1 GbE copper interfaces and six 10 GbE SFP+ interfaces, making the Brocade VDX 6710 with Brocade VCS® Fabric technology an ideal platform for Top-of-Rack (ToR) fabric deployments in existing 1 GbE server environments.

Brocade VCS Fabric technology is an innovative technology that enables organizations to build high-performance, cloud-optimized data centers while preserving existing network designs and cabling, and gaining active-active server connections. For scale-out fabric architectures, Brocade VCS Fabric technology allows organizations to flatten network designs, provide Virtual Machine (VM) mobility without network reconfiguration, and manage the entire fabric more efficiently.


  • Supports existing 1 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) data center server connectivity
  • Maximizes performance through 48 wirespeed 1 GbE ports with 600 nanosecond port-to-port latency and hardware-based Inter-Switch Link (ISL) trunking
  • Simplifies network architectures and enables cloud computing by delivering Brocade VCS Fabric technology
  • Simplifies networking infrastructure by eliminating STP and providing multihomed active-active server connections for Ethernet networks
  • Simplifies virtualized server management by providing Virtual Machine (VM) mobility with dynamic server profile configuration and migration
  • Provides efficiently load-balanced multipathing at Layers 1, 2, and 3, with multiple Layer 3 gateways
