Product Review

The Brocade NI-CES-2048FL3PREM-AC excels in port density with 48x1G SFP ports, supporting versatile network configurations and facilitating efficient space utilization in data centers. However, it lacks 10G uplinks and combo ports, limiting scalability and flexibility for networks requiring higher throughput or diversified media types. Its forwarding performance at 96 Gbps and packet forwarding rate of 71 Mpps, alongside a 128 MB buffer, aligns with the needs of medium-sized network environments, but the absence of higher-speed connectivity options may constrain future network expansions.


The Brocade NI-CES-2048FL3PREM-AC stands out in the field of computer networking hardware with its specific design tailored for high performance and efficiency. This device features a 48x1G Hybrid Fiber (HF) SFP configuration, ensuring a wide range of connectivity options for various network demands. It is equipped with a 500W AC power supply, highlighting its capability to support extensive operations without compromising on power efficiency. With a port density of 48 100/1000 SFP ports, this model does not include 10G uplinks or combination (combo) ports, focusing instead on delivering high-quality service through its existing ports. The forwarding performance is marked at 96 Gbps, with a packet forwarding performance of 71 Mpps, ensuring swift data transmission across the network. The device also features a buffering capacity of 128 MB, which aids in managing data flow efficiently during high-traffic periods. Power supply options are versatile, with support for both internal AC or DC sources, and include a 1+1 power supply redundancy scheme. This ensures uninterrupted operation, crucial for maintaining network stability. The system also incorporates M+N fan redundancy, providing additional reliability through enhanced cooling mechanisms. Air flow is designed from front to back, optimizing the cooling process for the internal components.
  • Maximum AC and DC power consumption is capped at 245 Watts, offering a balanced approach to power usage.
  • Maximum thermal output is recorded at 836 BTU/hour, reflecting the device's operational heat output under maximum load.
  • Support for jumbo frames up to 9,216 bytes allows for efficient large data packet transmissions, reducing overhead and improving network throughput.
