The Brocade® ICX® 7450 Switch delivers the performance, flexibility, and scalability required for enterprise Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) access deployment. It offers market-leading stacking density with up to 12 switches (576 1 GbE and 48 10 GbE ports) per stack and combines chassis-level performance and reliability with the flexibility, costeffectiveness, and “pay as you grow” scalability of a stackable solution. In addition, this mid-market stackable switch is the first in its class to offer 40 GbE uplinks, enabling enterprises to dramatically increase their network capacity while using their existing optical wire infrastructure.
The unique design of the Brocade ICX 7450 provides three modular slots, offering up to 12 1/10 GbE SFP/SFP+ ports, 12 10GBASE-T ports, or up to three 40 GbE QSFP+ ports for uplink or stacking. As a result, the Brocade ICX 7450 can easily deliver sufficient bandwidth between the edge and aggregation layers to support expanding video traffic, VDI adoption, and highspeed wireless 802.11ac deployment. Additionally, the Brocade ICX 7450 delivers wire-speed, non-blocking performance across all ports for flawless support of latency-sensitive applications. The Brocade ICX 7450 is an ideal network solution for campus network 1 GbE and 2.5 GbE access or small aggregation deployment with 10 GbE or 40 GbE uplinks to the core. The Brocade ICX 7450 also makes a very suitable data center Top-of-Rack (ToR) solution, delivering a mix of 1 GbE and 10 GbE server connectivity ports with 10 GbE or 40 GbE uplinks to the data center aggregation or core.
