Brocade channel partners, I’d like to flag for you Brocade’s announcement today, of the new Brocade ICX 7250 switch as well as a Switch Port Extender for the ICX 7000 family and an expanded channel sales promotion for you and your customers to quickly benefit from these latest Brocade innovations.
At Brocade we’re excited about the latest example of Brocade innovation, the ICX 7250 because it offers the industry’s highest 10GbE port density for any switch in its class to help Campus networks scale to meet fast-growing data loads, such as from user video and wireless traffic. This new switch delivers 50 percent greater stacking density than comparable switches, consolidating as many as 576 GbE ports into a single, virtual chassis and management touch point. For customers, this means greatly simplified management and reduced CapEx.
The Switch Port Extender, a new HyperEdge Architecture technology similar to mixed stacks, streamlines network deployment and ongoing network maintenance and offers customers enhanced investment protection across the ICX 7000 suite of products. Also announced today, OpenFlow 1.3 support to the ICX 7450 and ICX 7750 switches, enables SDN solutions and applications for Campus LAN architectures.
