Product Review

The Brocade BR-VDX6720-24-F offers a high switching bandwidth of 480 Gbps and low port-to-port latency of 600 nanoseconds within 10-port groups, making it suitable for environments requiring fast data transfer and minimal delay. Despite its compact 1U form factor, the switch supports up to 4096 VLANs and features 24 1/10 GbE SFP+ ports, enhancing its versatility in various network configurations. However, its non-port side exhaust airflow design may limit its deployment in certain rack setups, requiring careful consideration of cooling and air circulation.


The Brocade BR-VDX6720-24-F is a high-performance networking switch designed for data centers requiring efficient, high-speed data transfer and network connectivity. This switch is equipped with 24 1/10 GbE SFP+ ports, supporting a wide range of optical and copper SFP/SFP+ transceivers for flexible network configurations. With its compact 1U form factor, the switch is optimized for space-constrained environments, measuring 42.88 cm in width, 4.32 cm in height, and 38.10 cm in depth, and weighing 7.30 kg. This model offers exceptional performance features, including a switching bandwidth of 480 Gbps, ensuring high data throughput and reducing bottlenecks in high-performance computing environments. The port-to-port latency is impressively low at 600 nanoseconds within any 10-port group, which minimizes delay and maximizes the efficiency of data transmission across the network. The switch supports up to 4096 VLANs, providing extensive network segmentation capabilities to enhance security and improve traffic management. The maximum jumbo frame size supported is 9208 bytes, allowing for the efficient handling of large data packets and reducing the overhead associated with processing multiple smaller packets. Power efficiency and redundancy are critical in maintaining network uptime, and the BR-VDX6720-24-F addresses these needs with two hot-swappable, load-sharing power supplies. The cooling system is designed with N+1 redundancy, integrated into the power supplies to ensure optimal performance and system reliability. The airflow specification indicates a non-port side exhaust, with a maximum airflow of 53 CFM and a nominal airflow of 35 CFM, ensuring adequate cooling under various operational loads. Heat dissipation is managed efficiently with a rate of 450 BTU/hr for the 24-port switch. The switch operates reliably across a wide range of environmental conditions, with an operating temperature range from 0°C to 40°C and a non-operating temperature range from −25°C to 70°C. Humidity tolerance ranges from 10% to 85% non-condensing during operation and 10% to 90% non-condensing for non-operating and storage conditions. It is designed to function at altitudes of up to 3000 meters, ensuring performance in various geographical locations. Key hardware specifications include: -
  • 24P SFP+AC for flexible connectivity options.
  • Two hot-swappable, load-sharing power supplies for uninterrupted power supply.
  • N+1 redundant cooling fans integrated into power supplies for efficient heat management.
The BR-VDX6720-24-F is engineered to withstand operational vibrations, with specifications of 0.5 g sine, 0.4 grms random over a frequency range of 5 to 500 Hz, ensuring durability and stable performance in environments that experience physical disturbances. In summary, the Brocade BR-VDX6720-24-F switch combines high-speed data transfer capabilities with efficient power and cooling management, extensive VLAN support, and a compact form factor.
