Product Review

The Brocade ICX7250-48 offers significant advantages with its high switching capacity of 256 Gbps and forwarding rate of 190 Mpps, supporting dense network environments with 48 10/100/1000 Mbps RJ-45 ports and 8 1/10 Gbps SFP+ ports. However, the lack of a preloaded 10 GbE PoD license necessitates additional investment for those needing to leverage 10 GbE capabilities. Additionally, its side-to-back airflow design, while effective for cooling, may require specific rack configurations for optimal performance.


The Brocade ICX7250-48 is a highly capable switch designed to cater to the demands of modern network environments. It features 48 fixed ports that support 10/100/1000 Mbps RJ-45 connections, providing flexibility for a variety of network deployments. Additionally, the switch has 8 SFP+ ports that support 1/10 Gbps speeds, enhancing its capability to handle high-bandwidth applications. Notably, these SFP+ ports can be upgraded to 10 GbE with an optional license, offering a path for network growth. This switch boasts a switching capacity of 256 Gbps and a forwarding capacity of 190 Mpps, both at full duplex, ensuring efficient handling of data through the network. The device is engineered for performance and scalability, demonstrated by its aggregated stacking bandwidth of 480 Gbps and the ability to stack up to 12 switches. This stacking functionality is supported up to a maximum distance of 10 km, facilitating flexible deployment across extended sites. Power efficiency is a key consideration in the design of the ICX7250-48, with a power supply rated at a maximum of 135 W. The switch's power consumption varies based on the load, drawing 50.64 W at idle with no Power over Ethernet (PoE) load, 63.55 W with 10% traffic and full PoE load, and up to 69.51 W under 100% traffic with full PoE load. It also features efficient heat dissipation mechanisms, ensuring operational stability. - Side-to-back airflow design supports effective cooling under various operating conditions. - No preloaded 10 GbE PoD license, offering customization based on specific network requirements. - Features an MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) of 429,209 hours, indicating high reliability. The physical specifications include a weight of 4.73 kg and dimensions of 440 mm in width, 370 mm in depth, and 43.7 mm in height, fitting into a 1U rack space. This makes it suitable for both large data centers and compact network closets. The operating noise level is rated at 44.7 dB, making it relatively quiet for environments where noise pollution is a concern. Environmental tolerances are robust, with operating temperatures ranging from -5°C to 50°C and storage temperatures from -25°C to 70°C. The ICX7250-48 can operate in relative humidity conditions from 5% to 95% at 50°C, non-condensing, and can be stored in conditions from 0% to 95% at 70°C, non-condensing. These specifications ensure that the switch can perform reliably in a wide range of environmental conditions. In summary, the Brocade ICX7250-48 is built to support the needs of modern networks with its comprehensive feature set, including high port density, scalable performance, power efficiency, and environmental resilience. Its design supports both current and future network demands, making it an ideal choice for organizations looking to build or expand their networking infrastructure.
