Product Review

The Brocade BR-6510-24-16G-R offers high performance with its 24 active ports delivering 16 Gbps Fibre Channel speeds and an aggregate bandwidth of 768 Gbps, suitable for demanding data center environments. However, its latency of 700 ns may not meet the needs of applications requiring ultra-low latency communication. The inclusion of dual, hot-swappable redundant power supplies enhances system reliability, but the switch's operating temperature range limits its deployment in environments exceeding 40°C.


The Brocade BR-6510-24-16G-R is a 24-Port 16 Gbps Fibre Channel SAN Switch designed to support high-speed networking requirements. This switch offers enhanced performance with a focus on reliability and scalability for storage area network (SAN) environments. The device features 48x 16 Gigabit SFP+ Fibre Channel ports, with 24 active ports, enabling efficient high-speed connections. For management, it includes a 1x RJ-45 console port and a 1x USB (Type A) port, facilitating easy setup and configuration. Key hardware specifications include two AC hot-swappable redundant power supplies (23-0000092-02) with integrated cooling fans, supporting AC 120/230 V at 50/60 Hz, ensuring uninterrupted operation and reliability. The switch is designed with back-to-front airflow, optimizing cooling for the system components and maintaining a stable operating environment. The Brocade BR-6510 boasts a low latency of 700 ns, enhancing the efficiency of data transmission and reducing delays in high-traffic networks. It supports a rack-mountable 1-RU form factor, making it suitable for compact spaces within data centers. With an aggregate bandwidth of 768 Gbps end-to-end full duplex, this switch offers substantial throughput for data-intensive applications. Other notable specifications include a maximum frame size of 2112 byte payload and 8192 dynamically allocated frame buffers, which improve the switch's ability to handle large volumes of data without performance degradation. The system also features a single USB port for additional connectivity options. The physical dimensions of the Brocade BR-6510 are width: 437.64 mm (17.23 in.), height: 43.18 mm (1.7 in.), and depth: 443.23 mm (17.45 in.), with a system weight of 9.16 kg (20.20 lb) when equipped with two power supply units, excluding transceivers. This compact size and weight make it easy to integrate into various network environments. Operating conditions for the switch are within a temperature range of 0° to 40°C (32°F to 104°F) and a humidity range of 10% to 85% (non-condensing). For non-operating conditions, it can withstand temperatures from −25° to 70°C (−13°F to 158°F) and humidity from 10% to 90% (non-condensing). The operating altitude is up to 3000 m (9843 ft), and the storage altitude reaches up to 12 km (39,370 ft).
