Product Review

The Brocade ICX7250-48P-2X10G switch offers a solid foundation for enterprise networks, featuring 48 PoE ports capable of supporting up to 24 PoE+ devices with its internal power supply, with the capability to support 48 PoE+ devices with an external power supply. Its high switching capacity of 256 Gbps and forwarding rate of 190 Mpps, alongside optional 10 GbE SFP+ upgrade licenses, provide ample bandwidth and flexibility for a variety of network demands. However, the power consumption under full PoE load and the need for an external power supply to maximize PoE+ port usage might limit its deployment in environments with strict power efficiency requirements or limited space for additional hardware.


The Brocade ICX7250-48P-2X10G is a networking switch designed to cater to the needs of modern enterprises, offering a blend of performance, scalability, and power efficiency. This model features 48 Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports, which facilitate the delivery of power and data over a single network cable to devices such as IP cameras and VoIP phones. In addition, it comes equipped with 8×1/10 GbE SFP+ ports and 2×10 GbE ports with a preloaded PoD license, enhancing its versatility for high-speed connectivity. The switch boasts a switching capacity of 256 Gbps (data rate, full duplex) and a forwarding capacity of 190 Mpps (million packets per second), ensuring efficient handling of network traffic and minimizing latency. With 48 fixed RJ-45 ports supporting 10/100/1000 Mbps and the option to upgrade 8 of the SFP+ ports to 10 GbE through an optional license, the ICX7250-48P-2X10G is well-suited for environments demanding high bandwidth and reliable connectivity. For organizations requiring higher capacity and redundancy, this model supports aggregated stacking bandwidth of up to 480 Gbps and allows for up to 12 switches to be stacked together. This stacking capability extends the operational flexibility and simplifies management by enabling multiple switches to be controlled as a single entity. Moreover, the maximum stacking distance of 10 km between stacked switches allows for deployments across extended locations. The power specifications reveal a comprehensive PoE power budget to support various devices. With an internal AC power supply, the switch can deliver PoE on all 48 ports (Class 3) or up to 24 PoE+ ports, which can be expanded to 48 PoE+ ports with an external power supply. The total power supply rated maximum is 880 W, with a PoE power budget of 740 W, ensuring ample power for connected devices. Operational efficiency is demonstrated through its power consumption metrics, which vary based on traffic load and PoE utilization. At idle with no PoE load, the switch consumes 66 W, which slightly increases to 84 W at 10% traffic with full PoE load and peaks at 96 W under 100% traffic conditions. The corresponding heat dissipation figures ensure that the switch operates within safe thermal parameters, even under full load. Physically, the ICX7250-48P-2X10G is designed to fit in standard rack units, with dimensions of 440 mm in width, 370 mm in depth, and a height of 43.7 mm, conforming to the 1U rack space standard. It weighs 5.86 kg, making it manageable for installation and maintenance. The switch operates within a broad temperature range, from a minimum of -5°C to a maximum of 50°C, and can be stored in temperatures ranging from −25°C to 70°C. Key specifications include: -
  • 48 PoE ports and 8×1/10 GbE SFP+ ports with 2 additional 10 GbE ports
  • Switching capacity of 256 Gbps and forwarding capacity of 190 Mpps
