Brocade FastIron SX 1600 Campus Aggregation Switch

The Brocade FI-SX-1600 Aggregation Switch delivers industry-leading price/performance value in a campus aggregation and core solution. These powerful switches provide a scalable, secure, low-latency, and fault-tolerant IP services infrastructure for 1 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) enterprise deployments. Organizations can leverage a high-performance, non-blocking architecture and an end-to-end high-availability design with redundant management modules, fans, load-sharing switch fabrics, and power supplies.

Organizations strive to remain competitive and demand network infrastructures that are resilient, secure, and able to do more with less. The Brocade FastIron SX Series of Layer 2/Layer 3 switches provides a superior scalable foundation for increased operational efficiency and faster response to business opportunities today and tomorrow.

The FastIron SX Series extends control from the network edge to the core with intelligent network services, including superior Quality of Service (QoS), predictable performance, advanced security, comprehensive management, and integrated resiliency. Additionally, the FastIron SX Series offers compatibility in a common operating system, and a shared interface and power supply modules reduce the cost of ownership by minimizing operational expenses and improving Return on Investment (ROI).

The FastIron SX Series has an extensive feature set, making it well suited for real-time collaborative applications, IP telephony, IP video, e-learning, Wireless LANs (WLANs), and raising the organization’s productivity. The FastIron SX Series delivers wire-speed performance and ultra-low latency, which are ideal for converged network applications such as VoIP and video conferencing. These platforms present the industry’s most scalable and resilient PoE design, with a robust feature set to secure and simplify the deployment of an edge-to-core converged network. In addition, the FastIron SX Series supports high-density 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) for enterprise backbone deployments.

Configuration Alternatives

he FastIron SX Series of switches is optimized for flexibility with upgradability for PoE/PoE+, redundant management, switch fabric and power, and 10 GbE. Available in two chassis models, the scalable FastIron SX Series helps enterprises and service providers reduce costs and gain the operational benefits of a common operating system, a shared interface, and common power supply modules.
