Product Review

The Brocade ICX6450-48P switch offers a solid foundation for networks, providing 48 1G ports with PoE+ capabilities and a total power budget of 780W, suitable for high-power devices across all ports. However, its upgradability is limited, with only two 1G SFP+ ports that can be upgraded to 10G, and an additional two 1G/10G SFP+ uplink/stacking ports, which may not meet future high-bandwidth needs. The switch supports a stacking bandwidth of 40 Gbps and allows up to 8 units per stack, enhancing scalability and manageability in growing network environments.


The Brocade ICX 6450-48P is a 48-port 1G switch designed to meet the demands of modern enterprise networks. It provides a comprehensive solution for data, voice, and video traffic across a single device. This switch is equipped with 48 10/100/1000 Mbps RJ-45 ports, delivering high-speed connectivity and reliability for a wide range of network applications. Key to the ICX 6450-48P's functionality is its Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) capability, offering a 780W power budget. This feature enables the device to power PoE+ enabled devices such as VoIP phones, wireless access points, and surveillance cameras directly through the network cables, significantly reducing the need for additional power supplies and outlets. The switch also includes four 1/10 GbE SFP/SFP+ ports for uplink and stacking purposes. Initially, it comes with two 1G SFP+ ports, but with an optional license, users can upgrade two of these ports to 10G, enhancing its uplink capabilities. This flexibility allows for a scalable network that can adapt to increasing bandwidth demands. - Stacking bandwidth of 40 Gbps (full duplex) across up to 8 units allows for efficient network management and scalability. - The internal AC power supply is rated at 880W, with an option for redundant power through an external power supply of 525W × 2, ensuring uninterrupted operation. - The switch's PoE/PoE+ power budget supports up to 48 PoE Class 3 ports or 24 PoE+ ports with the internal power supply alone. With both internal and external power supplies, it can support up to 48 PoE+ ports. Furthermore, the ICX 6450-48P boasts a switching capacity of 176 Gbps and a forwarding capacity of 132 Mpps (million packets per second), enabling it to handle large volumes of data efficiently. This performance ensures that all connected devices can operate at peak efficiency without network bottlenecks. The device is designed for durability and reliability, weighing 14.11 lb (6.4 kg) and measuring 1.7 inches in height, 17.44 inches in width, and 14.57 inches in depth. It operates effectively in a wide range of temperatures, from 0°C to 45°C, and can be stored in temperatures from −40°C to 70°C. Its design also accounts for high humidity environments, functioning optimally in 5% to 95% non-condensing humidity levels. In summary, the Brocade ICX 6450-48P is a versatile, high-performance switch that caters to extensive network requirements. Its PoE+ capability, flexible uplink/stacking options, and substantial power and data handling capacities make it an ideal choice for businesses looking to optimize their network infrastructure for efficiency, scalability, and reliability.
