Product Review

The Brocade ICX6450-24 switch offers a solid option for networks requiring high-density 1G connectivity with its 24 RJ-45 ports and the flexibility to upgrade 2 of its SFP+ ports to 10G. However, its stacking capability, while allowing up to 8 units, is limited by a 40 Gbps full-duplex bandwidth, which may be a bottleneck in high-performance scenarios. Additionally, the switch provides a comprehensive Layer 2 feature set and supports up to 12,000 IPv4 routes, making it suitable for complex network environments, but the optional power supply for redundancy and PoE may entail additional investment.


The Brocade ICX6450-24 is a 24-port Ethernet switch designed to meet the needs of modern networks, offering a blend of performance, scalability, and flexibility. This switch comes equipped with 24 RJ-45 ports supporting 10/100/1000 Mbps speeds, ideal for a range of applications and network sizes. In addition to the base ports, the switch includes 2x1G SFP+ ports that can be upgraded to 10G and 2x1G/10G SFP+ uplink/stacking ports, providing high-speed connections and options for network growth. The switch's hardware is engineered to support significant data throughput and resilience. It boasts a switching capacity of 128 Gbps and a forwarding capacity of 96 million packets per second (Mpps), ensuring efficient data transmission across the network. The ICX6450-24 can accommodate up to 16,000 MAC addresses, supports up to 4096 VLANs, and can manage up to 253 spanning trees, making it a versatile solution for complex network environments. Stacking is another critical feature of the ICX6450-24, with a maximum stacking bandwidth of 40 Gbps and the capability to stack up to 8 units. This allows for streamlined management and scalability, enabling networks to expand without compromising on performance or manageability. The switch also offers an optional 2-port license for additional 1/10 GbE SFP/SFP+ ports, further enhancing its flexibility. For environments that require redundancy and power efficiency, the ICX6450-24 includes an internal AC power supply rated at 65W and supports an optional external power supply of 525W for redundant power and Power over Ethernet (PoE) capabilities. This ensures that the switch can continue to operate in the event of a power supply failure and can provide power to connected devices, reducing the need for additional power sources. The device comes preloaded with Layer 2 base software, including IPv4 static routes, facilitating its integration into existing network infrastructures and simplifying configuration tasks. With a focus on performance, it supports trunking with up to 8 ports per trunk and a maximum of 127 trunk groups, alongside 8 priority queues for efficient traffic management. Physically, the Brocade ICX6450-24 maintains a compact form factor at 1.7 inches in height, 17.44 inches in width, and 9.45 inches in depth, and weighs 7.39 pounds. This size allows it to fit into a variety of spaces, from small closets to large data centers. The switch is designed to operate within a temperature range of 0°C to 45°C and can be stored in temperatures from −40°C to 70°C, ensuring reliable performance in diverse environments. Key Specifications: -
  • 24x 10/100/1000 Mbps RJ-45 ports
  • 4x 1/10 GbE SFP/SFP+ ports (with optional license)
