Brocade 6910 Ethernet Access Switch

The Brocade 6910-EAS Switch provides a flexible, easy-to-deploy solution to address the challenges service providers face today. Optimized for pure-play Ethernet access within metro areas, the Brocade 6910 supports applications for mobile backhaul, business services, and residential triple-play offerings. In addition, it offers a cost-effective, energy-efficient, and small form-factor solution that extends wire-speed Ethernet services to the network edge without compromising performance.

Service providers today are focused on transforming their networks and business models to operate more efficiently and profitably. To meet these challenges, service providers need to extend their reach and offer differentiated services while reducing both cost and complexity.

The Brocade 6910 Ethernet Access Switch helps service providers reduce operational costs by providing greater flexibility and efficiency. In addition to supporting multiple fiber or copper configurations on a single switch, it allows the same ports to be configured to connect directly to the customer or as a network interface on the service side. This ideally positions the Brocade 6910 at the edge of a broadband access network for Ethernet service demarcation, extension, and aggregation—enabling service providers to economically deliver high-value Ethernet services.

Purpose-built as an Ethernet access switch, the Brocade 6910 helps eliminate the overhead cost of other technologies while efficiently delivering Layer 2 services to the edge and providing triple-play services and business Virtual Private Network (VPN) solutions.

The Brocade 6910 provides a standards-based solution, enabling seamless deployment and interoperability within the network. It supports the full suite of Layer 2 features—including Ethernet Ring Protection, Spanning Tree Protocols, Provider Bridging, and IGMP snooping—as well as Layer 3 static routing for Internet connectivity.
