Product Review

The Brocade BR-VDX8770-6X100G-CFP2 module offers a high data transfer rate of 10 Gbps across its 6×100 GbE CFP2 slots, catering to high-capacity networking needs without including optics, allowing for customizable setups. Its operational and non-operational temperature and humidity ranges, alongside its tolerance for shock, vibration, and altitude, ensure reliability in varied environmental conditions. However, the requirement for a 200 to 240 VAC input voltage and the maximum current specifications could limit its deployment in regions with fluctuating power supplies or lower voltage standards.


The Brocade BR-VDX8770-6X100G-CFP2 module is a high-performance networking hardware designed for scalability and high-speed data transfer. This module supports six 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports, providing a substantial bandwidth for data-intensive applications and network environments. It operates without optics, allowing for flexibility in network design and implementation. Key specifications of the BR-VDX8770-6X100G-CFP2 include its compatibility with CFP2 modules, enhancing its performance capabilities in data centers and enterprise networks. The device operates effectively within an ambient temperature range of 0°C to 40°C (32°F to 104°F), ensuring reliability under standard operating conditions. For environments outside the switch, the non-operational temperature range extends from −25°C to 70°C (−13°F to 158°F), accommodating various storage and transportation conditions. Humidity levels are also a crucial consideration for networking hardware. The BR-VDX8770-6X100G-CFP2 maintains operation with a minimum relative humidity of 5% at 40°C (104°F) and a maximum of 90% at the same temperature. When non-operational, the module can withstand humidity ranges from 10% at 70°C (158°F) to 90% at 70°C (158°F), ensuring durability across different environments. Altitude can affect the performance of networking equipment. This module operates efficiently at altitudes from 0 m (0 feet) to 3000 m (10,000 feet) above sea level. For non-operational conditions, it can tolerate altitudes up to 12,000 m (40,000 feet), providing versatility for various installation locales. Durability against physical stresses is critical for hardware longevity. The BR-VDX8770-6X100G-CFP2 withstands operational shocks of 20 G, with a 6 ms duration in a half-sine wave pattern. Non-operational shocks can reach 33 G for 11 ms, also in a half-sine wave. Vibration resistance is rated at 0.5 G from 5-500 Hz at 1.0 octave/minute for operation, and 2.0 G under the same conditions when non-operational. The module boasts a substantial MAC Address Table Size of 384,000, accommodating large-scale network management and security requirements. It supports an input line frequency of 50/60 Hz, with a maximum current of 16.0 A per power supply in AC mode and 70.0 A in DC mode. The operating voltage range is 180 to 264 VAC, within the input voltage of 200 to 240 VAC, facilitating flexible and efficient power management. Data transfer rates are another cornerstone of the BR-VDX8770-6X100G-CFP2's capabilities, supporting speeds up to 10 Gbps.
