Product Review

The Brocade ICX6610-48-E switch offers a high switching capacity of 576 Gbps and a forwarding capacity of 432 Mpps, ensuring efficient data processing and wire-speed performance. With support for up to 8 units per stack and an aggregated stacking bandwidth of 1,230 Gbps, it allows for flexible and scalable network configurations. However, the initial configuration includes only a single 250 W power supply, which may necessitate an additional purchase for environments requiring redundant power for higher availability.


The Brocade ICX6610-48-E switch is designed to meet the demands of modern network environments, providing a high-performance, scalable, and resilient networking solution. This switch features 48 1 GbE RJ45 ports and 8 dual-mode 1/10 GbE SFP/SFP+ uplink ports, which can be upgraded to 10 GbE, offering flexibility and high-speed connectivity options for various network designs. Additionally, it is equipped with 4 40 GbE QSFP stacking ports, enhancing its capability to function within a stacked configuration that supports up to 8 units, thereby significantly increasing network capacity and simplifying management. The switch boasts a switching capacity of 576 Gbps and a forwarding capacity of 432 Mpps (million packets per second), ensuring efficient handling of data at wire speed across all ports. It also features an impressive aggregated stacking bandwidth of 1,230 Gbps, which facilitates high-speed data transfer and redundancy across the stacked configuration. The long-distance stacking feature supports a maximum distance of 150 meters between two stacked switches, providing flexibility in data center and campus deployments. Key hardware specifications include: - Hot-swappable fan assembly and power supplies for uninterrupted operation and easy maintenance. - A single 250 W power supply, with the option to add a second for redundancy and load sharing, each providing a maximum output of 250 W. - A compact 1U form factor with dimensions of 429 mm in width, 406.4 mm in depth, and 44 mm in height, making it suitable for space-constrained environments. Additional notable specifications are:
  • A weight of 6.78 kg, making it lightweight yet durable for its capabilities.
  • An operational temperature range from 0°C to 55°C, ensuring reliability under various environmental conditions.
  • A high mean time between failures (MTBF) of 408,144 hours, illustrating the switch's reliability and longevity.
The switch supports up to 32,000 MAC addresses and 4,096 VLANs, offering ample capacity for large-scale deployments and complex network segmentation requirements. It operates efficiently across a wide range of input voltages (100 to 240 VAC) and frequencies (50 to 60 Hz), accommodating global power supply standards. In summary, the Brocade ICX6610-48-E provides a comprehensive solution for businesses looking to upgrade or expand their network infrastructure. With its high port density, upgradability to 10 GbE, extensive stacking capabilities, and reliable performance, it is well-suited for a variety of applications, including enterprise, data center, and campus networks.
