Product Review

The Brocade ICX7450-48 offers a high switching capacity of 336 Gbps and a forwarding capacity of 250 Mpps, making it suitable for environments requiring high data throughput. Its modularity with three slots for optional uplink/stacking ports and support for up to 12 switches in a stack enhances scalability and flexibility for growing networks. However, the need to purchase power supplies, fans, and modules separately can increase the total cost of ownership and complicate initial setup.


The Brocade ICX7450-48 is a 1 GbE switch designed to cater to the needs of modern networks, featuring 48 ports of 10/100/1000 Mbps RJ45 connectivity. This device sets itself apart with its three modular slots, allowing for a flexible choice of optional uplink and stacking ports to tailor the network as per requirements. It is important to note that power supplies, fans, and modules are not included and must be ordered separately, allowing for customization based on specific needs. This switch boasts a switching capacity of 336 Gbps and a forwarding capacity of 250 Mpps, ensuring efficient handling of data across the network. The modular design includes slots that support a variety of port types. Specifically, it can accommodate up to four 1 Gbps SFP, twelve 1/10 GbE SFP/SFP+, twelve 1/10GBASE-T RJ45, and two 40 GbE QSFP+ modular ports. This range of supported modules enables the switch to adapt to a variety of networking environments and requirements. For organizations requiring high availability and performance, the Brocade ICX7450-48 offers impressive aggregated stacking bandwidth of 960 Gbps and supports a stacking density of up to twelve switches. The maximum stacking distance is notable at 10 km, offering flexibility in switch placement and network design. Stacking ports include options for up to four 10 GbE SFP+ or two 40 GbE QSFP+, providing ample bandwidth for data-intensive applications. - Input voltage/frequency supports both AC and DC power, with AC: 100 to 240 VAC @ 50 to 60 Hz and DC: 40 to 60 VDC. - The maximum current draw at 100 VAC with one power supply is 13.3 Amp, and the power supply's rated maximum output is 2×250 W for AC and 2×510 W for DC. - Dimensions are compact for a 1U rack-mount form factor, measuring 440 mm (17.323 in.) wide, 393.7 mm (15.5 in.) deep, and 43.7 mm (1.720 in.) high, with a weight of 6.5 kg (14.33 lb). In terms of environmental conditions, the Brocade ICX7450-48 operates within a temperature range of −5°C to 50°C (23°F to 122°F) and can be stored in temperatures ranging from −40°C to 70°C (−40°F to 158°F). The acoustics level at 25°C, as per ISO 7779, is 47 dBA, making it a relatively quiet device for its capabilities. In summary, the Brocade ICX7450-48 is a versatile and scalable networking switch that offers a wide range of configuration options through its modular design. Its high switching and forwarding capacities, along with the ability to stack multiple units for increased bandwidth and redundancy, make it an ideal solution for growing networks.
