Product Review

The Brocade BR-MLX-1GX20-U10G-X2 module offers the flexibility of upgrading from 1 GbE to 10 GbE with a software license, making it a scalable solution for growing network demands. However, its maximum power consumption of 160W may be considered high for some deployments, potentially impacting operational costs. Additionally, while it supports up to 2 million IPv4 routes, ensuring extensive routing capabilities, its operating temperature range is limited to 0°C to 40°C, which may restrict its use in environments with extreme temperatures.


The Brocade BR-MLX-1GX20-U10G-X2 is a versatile network module designed to enhance the capabilities of data centers and enterprise networks. It features a 20-port configuration that initially supports 1 GbE (X2) connectivity, offering a solid foundation for handling high-volume network traffic and applications. This module stands out for its upgradability; with an additional software license, users can boost the connectivity to 10 GbE, significantly increasing network speed and efficiency. Equipped to support SFP (Small Form-factor Pluggable) transceivers, this module provides flexibility in network design and expansion, allowing for a range of optical and copper connections to meet various network requirements. The inclusion of support for up to 2 million IPv4 routes emphasizes its capacity to manage large-scale network infrastructures efficiently, making it an ideal choice for complex networking environments. In terms of physical specifications, the module is designed for 19-inch rack mount installations and is compliant with several rack standards, including ANSI/EIA-310-D and ETS 300 119. This ensures it can be integrated into most existing data center and networking environments without the need for special accommodations. The Brocade BR-MLX-1GX20-U10G-X2 has a maximum power consumption of 160W, indicating its efficiency and reliability in continuous operation.
