The Brocade ICX 7250 Switch is expected to deliver the performance, flexibility, and scalability required for enterprise Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) access deployment.
It has 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.
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 ICX 7250 is available in 24- and 48-port 10/100/1000 Mbps models with 1 GbE or 10 GbE dual-purpose uplink/stacking ports—with or without Power over Ethernet (PoE) and Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+)—to support enterprise edge networking, wireless mobility, and IP communications without the need for additional power outlets or power injectors.
The new 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 scale-out 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.
