Product Review

The Brocade BR-VDX6720-24-R switch offers a high switching bandwidth of 480 Gbps and low port-to-port latency of 600 nanoseconds within a 10-port group, enhancing network performance and efficiency. However, its operating temperature range is limited to 0°C to 40°C, potentially restricting deployment in environments with extreme temperatures. Additionally, the switch supports a maximum of 4096 VLANs and features port side exhaust airflow, dual hot-swappable power supplies, and N+1 redundant cooling for reliability, but its form factor and weight may require careful consideration for rack space optimization.


The Brocade BR-VDX6720-24-R is a 1U high-performance switch designed to meet the demands of today's data centers. It features 24 1/10 GbE SFP+ ports, providing flexibility and scalability for a wide range of networking environments. The switch is engineered for high-speed data transmission with a switching bandwidth of 480 Gbps and a port-to-port latency of just 600 nanoseconds within any 10-port group, ensuring efficient data flow and reduced bottlenecks. This model supports a maximum of 4096 VLANs, enabling complex network segmentation and enhanced security. The Ports on Demand (PoD) feature allows for scalable port activation, with increments of 16 and 24, offering adaptability as network requirements evolve. Additionally, the switch is equipped with two hot-swappable, load-sharing power supplies and N+1 redundant cooling fans integrated into the power supplies, enhancing system reliability and uptime. The Brocade BR-VDX6720-24-R is designed with port side exhaust airflow to optimize cooling and maintain performance stability. This is critical in high-density deployments where thermal management is a key consideration. Key hardware specifications include: - Maximum jumbo frame size of 9208 bytes, accommodating large data packets for efficient network traffic handling. - Heat dissipation rated at 450 BTU/hr for the 24-port switch, ensuring operational efficiency and longevity of the hardware. - Operating temperature ranges from 0°C to 40°C, with a non-operating and storage temperature range of −25°C to 70°C, providing resilience in varied environmental conditions. The switch's dimensions are 42.88 cm in width, 4.32 cm in height, and 38.10 cm in depth, with a weight of 7.30 kg, making it compact yet sturdy for rack installations. Its design considerations also extend to its operational environment, supporting an operating altitude of up to 3000 meters and vibration tolerance specified at 0.5 g sine, 0.4 grms random, across a frequency range of 5 to 500 Hz, ensuring reliable performance in diverse physical conditions. Humidity tolerance is maintained at 10% to 85% non-condensing during operation, with non-operating and storage humidity range extended from 10% to 90% non-condensing. This wide range of environmental tolerance underscores the switch's adaptability to various data center conditions. In summary, the Brocade BR-VDX6720-24-R combines high-density port configuration, low latency, and scalability features in a compact, 1U form factor. Its design emphasizes reliability, with redundant power supplies and cooling, alongside operational efficiency with high switching bandwidth and support for extensive VLAN configurations. This makes it an adaptable solution for data centers looking to optimize their network performance and scalability.
