Product Review

The Brocade BR-VDX6740-24-R offers a high switching capacity of 1.28 Tbps and a forwarding rate of 960 Mpps, supporting demanding network environments with 48x 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ and 4x 40 Gigabit Ethernet QSFP+ ports for uplinks, but lacks pre-included SFP modules, necessitating additional investment for full operation. Dual AC power supplies and port-side exhaust airflow design ensure reliability and efficient cooling, yet the system operates within a limited temperature range of 0°C to 40°C, potentially restricting deployment in environments with extreme temperatures. Additionally, the switch's comprehensive management features, including a serial console and gigabit management ports, facilitate ease of use and monitoring, despite the absence of optical transceivers which might limit initial connectivity options.


The Brocade BR-VDX6740-24-R is designed to meet the demanding needs of today's data centers, featuring 24 SFP+ ports without optics, ensuring flexibility in connecting various devices. This model comes with an AC power supply and supports port-side exhaust airflow, optimizing cooling for increased reliability. The network configuration includes 48x 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ ports for high-speed data transfer and 4x 40 Gigabit Ethernet QSFP+ ports for uplink connections, allowing for significant expansion and connectivity options. Management is facilitated through 1x RJ-45 Serial Console and 1x RJ-45 Gigabit Management ports, alongside a USB 2.0 port for additional interface options. Key hardware specifications of the BR-VDX6740-24-R include a switching capacity of 1.28 Tbps and a forwarding rate of 960 Mpps, ensuring efficient handling of data through the network. The device can store up to 160,000 MAC addresses, aiding in efficient network traffic management and device connectivity. This switch is designed for easy integration into racks with a 1-RU size and comes with necessary accessories for immediate setup, including 2 GB USB flash drive, rubber feet for standalone deployment, and a serial cable for management connectivity.
