Product Review

The Brocade NI-CER-2024F-ADVPREM-DC offers a flexible port configuration, featuring 24×1 GbE Hybrid Fiber SFP ports with an optional slot for 2×10 GbE uplinks, providing scalability for network upgrades. However, it's limited by a single 500W DC power supply, lacking redundancy which might be a concern for environments requiring high availability. Additionally, the device supports up to 88 Gbps forwarding performance with the 2×10 GbE module installed, accommodating high-speed data transfer needs, but its operational temperature range and lack of power supply redundancy could be potential drawbacks in certain deployment scenarios.
