    The maximum thermal output is 461 BTU/hour. The device measures 17.4 inches wide, 1.7 inches high, and 17.6 inches deep.
  • What are the operating and non-operating environmental conditions?
    Operating conditions range from 0°C to 40°C (32°F to 104°F) with up to 90% relative humidity non-condensing. Non-operating conditions range from –25°C to 70°C (–13°F to 158°F) with up to 95% relative humidity non-condensing.

Product Review

The Brocade NI-CER-2024C-ADVPREM-AC offers a solid foundation for network infrastructure with its 24x1 GbE copper ports and the flexibility of four combination 100/1000 SFP ports, catering well to a variety of deployment scenarios. However, its optional 2x10 GbE slot, while providing a path for high-speed uplinks, may not suffice for environments with growing demands for 10 GbE connectivity. Additionally, the single 500 W AC power supply, despite supporting 1+1 redundancy, might limit power capacity for fully loaded and high-availability configurations.


The Brocade NI-CER-2024C-ADVPREM-AC is a networking device designed to cater to the demands of high-speed data centers and enterprise networks. This product features 24×1 GbE copper (RJ45) ports and includes four combination 100/1000 SFP ports for enhanced connectivity options. For networks requiring higher throughput, there is an optional slot available for 2×10 GbE XFP uplinks, facilitating broader bandwidth and superior data transmission rates. In terms of port density, the device offers 24 10/100/1000 RJ45 ports, with the flexibility to expand its capabilities through the optional 2×10 GbE XFP uplinks. The inclusion of combination ports allows for seamless integration with various network types, ensuring versatility across different networking environments. The forwarding performance of the Brocade NI-CER-2024C-ADVPREM-AC is 48 Gbps, which can be enhanced to 88 Gbps with the installation of the 2×10 GbE module. This ensures efficient handling of data traffic, reducing bottlenecks and improving overall network performance. Packet forwarding performance is equally impressive, with a base rate of 36 Mpps that can go up to 65 Mpps with the 2×10 GbE module, highlighting the device's capability to manage large volumes of data packets efficiently. Buffering capacity is another critical aspect, with the device offering 64 MB that can be expanded to 128 MB with the 2×10 GbE uplinks. This feature is crucial for maintaining data integrity and smooth transmission during peak loads. Power supply options are versatile, with an internal AC or DC source and a 1+1 redundancy feature, ensuring continuous operation without interruption. Fan redundancy is provided as M+N, guaranteeing optimal cooling and system reliability. The device supports front-to-back airflow, maintaining a stable operating temperature and ensuring longevity. The maximum power consumption is 135 watts, whether connected to an AC or DC source, with a thermal output of 461 BTU/hour. Physical dimensions are 17.4 inches in width, 1.7 inches in height, and 17.6 inches in depth, making it a compact solution for any rack or networking closet.
