This switch module is engineered to deliver high performance, reliability, and scalability. With a focus on hardware specifications, the Brocade BR-VDX8770-SFM-1 is built to support environments requiring sustained high bandwidth and low latency. At the heart of its design is the capability to deliver 4 Tbps per slot line-rate performance, ensuring substantial capacity for data-intensive applications. This feature underscores the switch's ability to handle massive amounts of data, making it an ideal solution for large-scale networks. Additionally, the switch module is equipped with a 48×1 GbE line card, providing up to 48 SFP/SFP+ copper ports. This flexibility in connectivity options allows for a wide range of network configurations and supports the integration of various devices within the network. Key specifications include: - Maximum jumbo frame size support of 9,216 bytes, which facilitates the efficient handling of large data packets, reducing overhead and improving overall network performance. - Support for up to 64 members in a Virtual Link Aggregation Group (vLAG), enhancing redundancy and bandwidth availability. - Capability to span a vLAG across up to 8 switches, offering robust network scalability and flexibility. The switch also supports DCB Priority Flow Control (PFC) across 8 classes, allowing for the prioritization of traffic and ensuring smooth data transmission even under heavy loads. This feature is crucial for networks that handle diverse types of traffic, including real-time applications that are sensitive to delays. Operating within a wide range of environmental conditions, the Brocade BR-VDX8770-SFM-1 is designed to function optimally between 0°C and 40°C, with a non-operational temperature tolerance of -25°C to 70°C. This durability ensures reliable performance across various deployment scenarios. The switch's resilience is further highlighted by its ability to operate at altitudes of up to 3000 meters (about 10,000 feet) and withstand physical stresses such as shock and vibration during operation and transportation. Furthermore, the device's power specifications are designed to accommodate the demands of high-performance hardware. With an input voltage range of 200 VAC to 240 VAC and a maximum current requirement of 16.0 A per power supply for AC (and 70.0 A max for DC), the switch is prepared to maintain its performance stability under varying power conditions. In summary, the Brocade BR-VDX8770-SFM-1 is a networking switch that offers high-capacity, flexibility, and durability, making it suitable for data centers facing the challenges of high-volume, high-speed data traffic. Its comprehensive support for advanced networking features, combined with robust environmental tolerances, positions it as a reliable choice for organizations looking to future-proof their network infrastructure.
