Product Review

The Brocade BR-6510-24-16G-F offers a high-density, 24-port active configuration that supports 16 Gbps Fibre Channel, effectively doubling the bandwidth for demanding data center environments. However, its 700 ns latency might not meet the needs of applications requiring ultra-low latency. Additionally, the inclusion of dual, hot-swappable power supplies with integrated cooling enhances its reliability and maintains operational efficiency, but the system's weight and size may pose challenges for deployments with limited space.


The Brocade BR-6510-24-16G-F is a high-performance Fibre Channel SAN Switch designed to meet the demands of highly virtualized and private cloud storage environments. This switch offers 24 active ports with 16 Gbps Fibre Channel capabilities, ensuring high-speed connectivity and efficient network operations. With an aggregate bandwidth of 768 Gbps end-to-end full duplex, it facilitates the seamless transfer of data, making it ideal for enterprise-level operations that require reliable and rapid access to critical information. This model is equipped with 48x 16 Gigabit SFP+ Fibre Channel ports, although only 24 are active by default. It provides flexibility in network design and expansion, allowing organizations to scale their operations as needed. The switch also includes management ports, featuring 1x RJ-45 Console and 1x USB (Type A), facilitating straightforward setup and ongoing management. Power efficiency and reliability are ensured through the inclusion of two AC hot-swappable redundant power supplies with integrated system cooling fans. Operating on AC 120/230 V at 50/60 Hz, these power supplies are designed to minimize downtime and support continuous operation, even in the event of a power supply failure. Key hardware features of the Brocade BR-6510-24-16G-F include: - Latency as low as 700 ns, enabling swift data transfer and processing. - A maximum frame size of 2112 byte payload, accommodating a wide range of data types and sizes for versatile network operations. - 8192 dynamically allocated frame buffers, ensuring efficient management of data flows and enhancing overall network performance. This switch is designed with front-to-back airflow, supporting optimal cooling and reliable operation in a variety of IT environments. Its 1U rack-mount size allows for efficient use of space within data centers, and the system's total weight of 9.16 kg (20.20 lb) with two power supply units included, makes it manageable for installation and maintenance. Operational parameters include a temperature range of 0° to 40°C (32°F to 104°F) and humidity tolerance of 10% to 85% (non-condensing), ensuring the switch's reliability in diverse environments. For non-operating conditions, it can withstand temperatures from −25° to 70°C (−13°F to 158°F) and humidity levels of 10% to 90% (non-condensing). The Brocade BR-6510-24-16G-F's technical specifications are complemented by its physical dimensions, measuring 437.64 mm (17.23 in.) in width, 43.18 mm (1.7 in.) in height, and 443.23 mm (17.45 in.) in depth.
