Product Review

The Brocade BR-SLX-9140-48V-DC-F offers a high switching bandwidth of 3.6 Tbps, supporting a wide range of Ethernet speeds (1GbE to 100GbE) across 54 ports, catering to diverse network demands. However, its port-to-port latency of 2.5 microseconds, while suitable for many applications, may not meet the requirements of ultra-low latency environments. The switch's design incorporates DC power supply options and front-to-back airflow, enhancing its suitability for varied data center environments, yet its power consumption peaks at 489W under full load, which could impact operational costs in high-density deployments.


The Brocade BR-SLX-9140-48V-DC-F is a high-performance networking switch designed to meet the needs of data centers and high-end enterprise networks. It features a direct current (DC) power supply and is engineered for efficient operation with front-to-back airflow, supporting optimal cooling under various workload conditions. This switch is equipped with a versatile array of ports, including 48 ports that can support 25 GbE, 10GbE, or 1GbE connections, alongside 6 ports that provide 100 GbE or 40 GbE connectivity. This configuration allows for flexible deployment options to suit a wide range of network architectures and bandwidth requirements. The switching bandwidth of the Brocade BR-SLX-9140-48V-DC-F is impressive, offering 1.8 Terabits per second (Tbps) data rate for both ingress and egress, culminating in a total switch capacity of 3.6 Tbps. This high capacity ensures that the switch can handle large volumes of data traffic with ease, making it suitable for environments where high data throughput and low latency are critical. With dimensions of 44.0 cm in width, 44.5 cm in depth, and a height of just 4.37 cm, this switch has a compact form factor that allows for efficient use of rack space in data centers. It weighs 9.00 kg, making it relatively easy to handle during installation or maintenance. The switch also boasts a low port-to-port latency of 2.5 microseconds, further enhancing its performance credentials for time-sensitive applications. Cooling is managed by five field-replaceable fans, ensuring the system remains operational even under high load conditions. The switch also features a dynamically shared packet buffer of 24 MB, which optimizes memory usage and improves network efficiency. Power supply options are flexible, supporting input voltages ranging from 90 V to 264 V AC or 40.8 V to 60 V DC, with an input line frequency of 47 Hz to 63 Hz. The switch has a typical power consumption of 182 W under low-load conditions and can consume up to 489 W at full capacity.
  • Input voltage range accommodates varying power supply standards, ensuring compatibility in diverse environments.
  • Five field-replaceable fans and front-to-back airflow design maintain optimal operating temperatures.
  • Dynamically shared packet buffer enhances network efficiency by optimizing memory allocation.
The operating temperature range for the Brocade BR-SLX-9140-48V-DC-F is between -5°C and 50°C, with non-operating and storage temperatures ranging from -40°C to 70°C.
