Brocade has announced an addition to the company’s campus networking family with the new Brocade ICX 7750Switch, which delivers the simplification and automation provided by the Brocade HyperEdge™ Architecture. The Brocade ICX 7750 is the first high-density 10/40 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) fixed-port solution purposely designed to enable scale-out solutions for campus aggregation.

The switch enables the scale-out of campus aggregation networks, helping organizations seamlessly add network capacity in an agile, cost-efficient manner. The Brocade ICX 7750 will be shown for the first time at Super Computing 2013 this week in Denver, Colorado.

As organizations such as research, education and government agencies feel the impact of mobile and social trends on their IT infrastructure, many are in need of a refresh for their IT networks. The primary reason for a refresh is that traditional networks are not suited for the delivery of large quantities of data, the proliferation of mobile devices and the additional layers of security required today.

Highlights of the Brocade ICX 7750:

  • Agility and Performance
    • Delivers unprecedented port density and scalability for a 10/40GbEfixed-port stackable switch (available second half 2014)
      • Up to 3,000 1/10GbE ports, or 80040GbE ports in a single logical device
      • Up to 82 terabits per second of aggregate switching capacity
      • Up to 46 billion packets per second of aggregate forwarding capacity
      • SDN-ready with true Hybrid Port mode support for OpenFlow 1.3
  • Value
    • Scale-out economics: progressively add switching capability at the core/aggregation layer when needed
    • Optical stacking links for distributed aggregation/core layer across the campus, delivering switching capacity where needed
    • Total cost of ownership (TCO) advantages of a fixed-port solution
    • Brocade Assurance Lifetime Limited Warranty


  • Automation and Resiliency
    • Chassis-level resiliency, high availability and manageability
      • Single point of management
      • A Quad Core processor allowing for In-Service Software Updates (ISSU) within a single unit, as well as hitless failover
      • Built-in resiliency, including a separate control and data stacking links for greater system reliability
      • Hot-swap alert latch to help ensure data integrity when removing or inserting the high-performance 6×40GbE module while the switch is operating
      • Enterprise-grade advanced features such as Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol Extended (VRRPe), Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), robust IPV4/IPV6 support, Multi-Chassis Trunking (MCT), and Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF)


  • Additional Information
    • Three models available:
      • 26 fixed 40GbE and six40GbEslot module
      • 48 fixed 10GbE and six fixed 40GbE + 6×40GbE slot
      • 48 10GBase-T and six fixed 40GbE +6×40GbE slot
    • Will receive the same Federal certifications held by other Brocade ICX switches
