Mfr Part #: ICX7250-48P-2X10G
The Brocade ICX 7250 Switch delivers the performance, flexibility, and scalability required for enterprise Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) access deployment. It raises the bar with up to 8×10 GbE ports for uplinks or stacking and market-leading stacking density with up to 12 switches (576×1 GbE) per stack. In addition, the Brocade ICX 7250 combines enterprise-class features, manageability, performance, and reliability with the flexibility, cost-effectiveness, and "pay as you grow" scalability of a stackable solution.
- Future-proofs campus networks via flexible stacking, software licensing of 1 GbE to 10 GbE ports, Brocade Switch Port Extender, and future upgrades to OpenFlow support in true hybrid port mode, enabling SoftwareDefined Networking (SDN) for programmatic network control
- Enables enterprise-class manageability with up to 8×10 GbE ports for stacking or uplinks
- Delivers market-leading stacking scalability with up to 12 switches per stack, 80 Gbps of stacking bandwidth, and long-distance stacking using open standards
- Offers full Power over Ethernet (PoE+) to power wireless access points, video surveillance and video conferencing equipment, VDI terminals, and HD displays directly from the switch
- Premium performance in an entry-level switch
The Brocade ICX 7250 Switch provides enterprise-class stackable LAN switching solutions to meet the growing demands of campus networks. Designed for small to medium-size enterprises, branch offices, and distributed campuses, these intelligent, scalable edge switches deliver enterprise-class functionality at an affordable price - without compromising performance and reliability. The Brocade Switch Port Extender technology extends the capabilities of the Brocade HyperEdge Architecture while maximizing the value of Brocade ICX 7250 Switches. It enables the Brocade ICX 7250 to extend ports in combination with Brocade ICX 7450 and 7750 Switches, creating a complete campus network solution with consolidated management across aggregation and core layers, shared network services - adding advanced Layer 3 capabilities to all switches - and scaleout flexibility to expand port density as needed. The Brocade ICX 7250 with Switch Port Extender provides an ideal network access solution for the campus network.
- Scaling out ports and services as demand grows
The Brocade ICX 7250 is easy to deploy, manage, and integrate into both new and existing networks. Organizations can buy only what they need today, and easily scale out as demand grows and new technologies emerge. Brocade stacking technology makes it easy to scale ports by stacking up to 12 Brocade ICX 7250 Switches into a single logical switch. This allows the Brocade ICX 7250 to provide a class-leading 80 Gbps of backplane bandwidth as well as simple and robust expandability for future growth at the network edge. In addition, this stacked switch has only a single IP address to simplify management and offers transparent forwarding across a pool of up to 576×1 GbE ports and 96×10 GbE ports. When new switches join the stack, they automatically inherit the stack's existing configuration file, enabling true plug-and-play network expansion. Flexible licensing of 1 GbE to 10 GbE ports, for uplink and stacking, allows organizations to optimize network performance based on specific requirements. Furthermore, Brocade Switch Port Extender technology enables organizations to add advanced Layer 3 services across the stack by simply adding premium Brocade ICX 7750 Switches to existing Brocade ICX 7250 deployments. This eliminates the need for "rip and replace" upgrades, since low-cost Brocade ICX 7250 ports can live on to inherit new services.
- Switch Port Extender technology: extending options and scalability
Brocade Switch Port Extender technology, offered for Brocade ICX 7250, 7450, and 7750 Switches, extends network options and scalability. It integrates premium Brocade ICX 7750, midrange Brocade ICX 7450, and entry-level Brocade ICX 7250 Switches, collapsing network access, aggregation, and core layers into a single HyperEdge domain. This domain shares network services while reducing management touch points and network hops through a single-layer design spanning the entire campus network. These powerful deployments deliver equivalent or better functionality than large, rigid modular chassis systems, but with significantly lower costs and smaller carbon footprints. Brocade ICX switches support Distributed Chassis deployment models that use standards-based optics and cabling interface connections to help ensure maximum distance between campus switches - up to 80 km - and minimum cabling costs - up to 50 percent less than incumbent solutions. This gives organizations the flexibility to deliver ports wherever they are needed on campus at a fraction of the cost. The Distributed Chassis design future-proofs campus networks by allowing networks to easily and cost-effectively expand in scale and capabilities.
