Product Review

The Brocade VDX 6720-60-R offers a high switching capacity of 1200 Gbps and supports up to 60 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ ports, with 20 active ports licensed, making it suitable for high-density networking environments. However, its operation is limited by a relatively high latency of 600 nanoseconds and a MAC address table size of 32,000, which may impact performance in scenarios requiring rapid data processing and extensive device connectivity. Additionally, the switch features dual 500W AC power supplies and N+1 redundant cooling fans, ensuring system reliability and uptime but operates within a relatively narrow temperature range of 0°C to 40°C, potentially limiting its deployment in environments with extreme temperature variations.


The Brocade BR-VDX6720-60-R is a networking switch designed to meet the demands of modern data centers. It features 60 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ ports, providing high-density and high-performance connectivity. This switch comes with 20 active ports licensed for immediate use, offering flexibility in network design and expansion capabilities. The hardware specifications of the BR-VDX6720-60-R include dual 500W AC power supplies, ensuring reliable power delivery and system uptime. The switch boasts a switching capacity of 1200 Gbps, facilitating efficient data processing and traffic management across the network. With a MAC address table size of 32,000, it efficiently handles large volumes of network traffic without compromising performance. This model is designed for efficiency and reliability, featuring three fan modules for cooling. The fans are hot-swappable and operate with an N+1 redundancy, ensuring continuous operation even if a fan fails. The airflow direction is back-to-front, optimizing cooling in standard rack configurations and supporting environments with specific airflow requirements. Additional hardware features include: - A single RJ-45 serial console and one RJ-45 Gigabit Management port for network management. - One USB port for storage and firmware updates. - The switch offers low latency, with a rate of 600 nanoseconds, minimizing delay in data transmission. The BR-VDX6720-60-R is designed to operate in a range of environmental conditions. It operates efficiently at temperatures from 0°C to 40°C and can be stored or operate in non-operating conditions at temperatures ranging from −25°C to 70°C. The switch is also designed to function in high humidity environments, supporting 10% to 85% non-condensing humidity levels during operation and 10% to 90% for storage or non-operating conditions. For installations at various altitudes, this switch can operate up to 3000 meters (9842 feet), making it suitable for deployment in diverse geographic locations. The unit's design includes port side exhaust airflow, facilitating its integration into different rack setups and compliance with various data center cooling strategies. The Brocade BR-VDX6720-60-R's compact size, occupying 2U in rack mounts, allows for efficient use of space in data centers. Despite its small footprint, it does not compromise on power, as evidenced by its heat dissipation capabilities of 1126 BTU/hr for the 60-port configuration, ensuring it remains cool under heavy operation. In summary, the Brocade BR-VDX6720-60-R is engineered for data centers requiring high-speed networking and reliability. With its high port density, efficient cooling system, and robust power supplies, it is well-suited to support the demanding environments of modern data centers.
