Product Review

The Brocade BR-MLX-10GX20-X2 module excels in supporting a high volume of IPv4 and IPv6 routes, accommodating up to 2.4 million IPv4 and 1.8 million IPv6 routes in hardware, making it suitable for networks with extensive routing requirements. However, its maximum power consumption of 440W may be considered high for environments aiming for energy efficiency. Additionally, the module's operating temperature range is limited to 0°C to 40°C, which may not be ideal for extreme temperature environments, potentially limiting its deployment in certain geographical locations.


The Brocade BR-MLX-10GX20-X2 is a high-performance networking module designed to cater to the demanding requirements of modern data centers and enterprise networks. This module is engineered to deliver exceptional speed and reliability, featuring a 20-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet/1 Gigabit Ethernet (X2) SFP+ configuration. It stands out for its capability to support an extensive route table, accommodating up to 2.4 million IPv4 and 1.8 million IPv6 routes directly in hardware. This capacity ensures efficient routing and scalability for growing network demands. One of the critical features of the BR-MLX-10GX20-X2 is its integrated hardware-enabled MACsec, providing secure communication over Ethernet by encrypting data on a per-port basis. This security feature is essential for protecting data as it travels across the network, ensuring confidentiality and compliance with industry standards. Designed for installation in a standard 19-inch rack, the module complies with several rack standards, including ANSI/EIA-310-D and ETS 300 119, ensuring it fits seamlessly into existing IT environments. Despite its powerful capabilities, the module has a maximum power consumption of 440W, making it energy efficient for its class. Communication settings for the module include a baud rate of 9600, with 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, and no flow control. These specifications ensure compatibility with a broad range of networking equipment and simplify the integration process. The operating temperature range of the BR-MLX-10GX20-X2 is 0°C (32°F) to 40°C (104°F), with a storage temperature range extending from –25°C (–13°F) to 70°C (158°F). This wide range indicates the module's durability and reliability under various environmental conditions. Additionally, the module can operate efficiently at a relative humidity between 5% (at 40°C, non-condensing) and 90% (at 40°C, non-condensing), with a storage humidity tolerance of up to 95% (non-condensing). These specifications ensure that the module remains operational and free from damage in humid conditions.
  • Supports up to 2.4 million IPv4 and 1.8 million IPv6 routes in hardware.
  • Integrated hardware-enabled MACsec for secure Ethernet communications.
  • Energy-efficient with a maximum power consumption of 440W.
The operating altitude range is from 0ft (0m) to 6,600 ft (2,012 m), with a storage altitude capacity of up to 15,000 ft (4,500 m), ensuring that the module functions effectively even in high-altitude locations. In summary, the Brocade BR-MLX-10GX20-X2 module is a versatile and efficient solution for expanding network capabilities.
