Product Review

The Brocade BR-MLX-1GFX24-X module excels in supporting a high volume of IPv4 routes, up to 1 million in hardware, and offers comprehensive IPv4/IPv6/MPLS hardware support, making it suitable for complex network environments. However, its maximum power consumption of 160W may be a concern for energy-conscious deployments. Additionally, the module's operating temperature range is limited to 0°C to 40°C, potentially restricting its use in environments with extreme temperature conditions.


The Brocade BR-MLX-1GFX24-X module is designed to provide high-density Fast Ethernet (FE) and Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) connectivity with advanced IPv4, IPv6, and MPLS hardware support. This module is equipped with 24 ports that are compatible with SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) modules, allowing for flexible network configurations and connectivity options. It is tailored to meet the demands of high-performance networks, supporting up to 1 million IPv4 routes directly in hardware for efficient routing and traffic management. Key hardware specifications of the BR-MLX-1GFX24-X include: - Compatibility: Designed for rack mount installation, this module supports 19-inch racks that comply with ANSI/EIA-310-D and ETS 300 119 standards. This ensures that it can be easily integrated into standard networking equipment racks, making it a versatile choice for various network environments. - Power Consumption: The module has a maximum power consumption of 160W, which reflects its capability to handle high workloads while maintaining efficiency in energy usage. - Serial Communication: For local management, it includes a baud rate of 9600, with 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, and no flow control. This facilitates straightforward configuration and monitoring through direct console access. The operating environment for the BR-MLX-1GFX24-X is designed to ensure reliability and durability under various conditions: - Operating temperature ranges from 0°C (32°F) to 40°C (104°F), allowing the module to perform reliably in a wide array of climate conditions. - Storage temperature capabilities extend from –25°C (–13°F) to 70°C (158°F), ensuring the module's integrity during non-operational periods. - Humidity levels for operating conditions are set between a minimum of 5%, at 40°C (104°F), non-condensing, and a maximum of 90%, at the same temperature, also non-condensing. For storage, humidity can range from 0% up to 95% maximum relative humidity, non-condensing. These specifications guarantee that the module can withstand a variety of environmental conditions without compromising performance. Furthermore, the module is engineered to function up to an altitude of 6,600 ft (2,012 m) when in operation and can be stored at altitudes up to 15,000 ft (4,500 m). This altitude tolerance ensures that the module remains operational and reliable even in high-altitude installations. In summary, the Brocade BR-MLX-1GFX24-X module is a comprehensive solution for networks requiring high-density, high-performance Ethernet connectivity with advanced IP routing capabilities. Its support for significant numbers of IPv4 routes in hardware, combined with its flexible SFP port configuration, makes it a powerful component of modern, high-speed networks. With its adherence to standard rack sizes, manageable power consumption, and robust operating parameters, this module is designed to meet the needs of demanding network environments.
