Brocade BR-DCX8510-4 is a high density, purpose built data center switch designed to deliver superior performance and scalability. The Brocade BR-DCX8510-4 is a 10/40 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) backbone switch, offering up to 8.5 terabits per second (Tbps) of throughput. With 4 ports of 32 and 4 ports of 10/40 GbE front ports and up to 4 ports of 10/40GbE rear ports, the BR-DCX8510-4 enables true convergence at local speeds without the need for expensive external switches like traditional fabrics can require. The BR-DCX8510-4 comes equipped with an advanced networking architecture featuring integrated high-performance Layer 3 routing with Cablefree IP routing technologies. This includes VCS Fabric and Fabric Multicast for robust OpenFlow support as well as full non-disruptive in service software upgrades (ISSU). The Brocade BR-DCX8510-4 also provides advanced virtualization capabilities such as Data Center Bridging (DCB), Virtual switching, Network Access Control (NAC) and Unified Communications traffic classification. Brocade’s BR-DCX8510-4 offers the highest density 10/40Gbe solution at nearly 16 terabits per second in slot density and up to 288 line rate ports when fully populated. Additionally, the switch can be equipped with up to 2.3 million active routes, providing superior scalability across large networks. The BR-DCX8510-4 also provides up to 3.2Tbps in Layer 2/3 multi-pathing throughput, allowing for enterprise network architectures with no need for additional aggregation or core switches. Furthermore, the BR-DCX8510-4 supports advanced reliability features such as hot swappable redundant load enhancing power supplies combined with an industry leading set of rich Layer 2/3 IPv6 networking features including Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) and TRILL (Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links). Additionally, the Brocade BR-CX8510-4 supports cost effective 40GBASE SR4 optics, providing long distance connectivity that makes it easy to extend data center installations into remote sites. The Brocade BR-DCX8510-4 is an intelligent next generation data center switch ideally suited for large scale deployments across mission critical networks. Its advanced features and scalability make it ideal for enterprises wishing to build out their datacenter networks with 10/40GbE architectures and virtualized services at local access speed.
